Week 88 – Painting Prep

I haven’t posted in a few weeks as the work going on as mainly been cabinet finish out and that doesn’t make for any great pictures.

Painting prep is now in full swing and the house is all taped up and being primed. The MDF wall that goes up all the way to the 2nd floor is primed.

Painting will continue for the next few weeks. It is a long process, but I’m looking forward to seeing the end results.

Week 81 – Landscape Grading

Now that all the scaffolding is down, the builder was able to get a bobcat into the backyard and do additional grading on the backyard which really gives you a better sense of the space.

Most of the smooth texture on the wall in prep for paint has also been complete.

We also need to choose the exterior paint for the stucco. The consensus is #2 for the warm tones that complements the black brick.

Once the stucco is painted, they will be able to clean all the exterior brick and get the site cleaned up in prep for the interior finishes.
