Details, details, details
It seems that my life right now is consumed with generating details. I am almost done with all the exterior and structural bits and hope to soon start working on cabinetry and millwork. It is not enough to have a vision of how you want things to be. You have to get that vision on paper with products and dimensions and you have to make sure the client, my better half is fully on board. Most of the time when we go to the site together Cathy gets more excited and invigorated, and I just see how much more work there is to do. This is what is referred to as a first world problem. 🙂
It has been less than a month since the first copper was installed on the roof and it is already turning brown from the salt air and acid rain
This is the east side of the house getting stoned. There was a hold up on acquiring the bluestone for the sills and lintels, but it is here now and the guys are racing up the wall.
We are re-using the oak flooring from the old house on the second floor and in our offices above the garage. I assumed it was red oak but discovered that is white oak so it will match the new flooring we are installing on the first floor. First floor flooring was delivered this week. It is nine inch wide quarter sawn engineered white oak and it is absolutely gorgeous. That should start getting installed next week.
The garage footings and foundation has been poured and back filled. Work is continuing on the septic field behind the garage.
