Things have been quite around the house as inspections are going on which will allow us to move on to insulation and drywall.
The door to the outdoor patio is installed which is quite impressive as part of the overall window package.
The brick coursing has also been nailed down in this sample area.
The skylight has been installed in the second story family area and it really brightened the room considerably.
Here is a picture of the front of the house now that the windows are installed.
We had a brief scare today when we discovered that Akash’s bathtub was full of water after two days of significant rain, but figured out pretty quickly they were doing a tub fill test. All the shower pans were also full of water. If all this passes, the plumbing should pass inspection and the electrical was inspected last week. If all goes well, the drywall will start in the next 10-14 days.
My father is town visiting so we took him by so he could see the progress. He took this nice panoramic photo from the upper garden terrace.
Windows are almost finished up. The windows around the front entrance are done and the only ones remaining are the ones in Akash’s room.
The window installation continues but should wrap up by the end of the week. All the windows in the main living area have been installed.
The downstairs master is also complete in the bed room and the sitting area.
As a bonus, the tub for the upstairs master is also here.
This house has lots of windows so the installation will continue for the next few weeks. They started the windows that overlook the property on the first floor, and it is going to be impressive when complete.
The exterior brick appears to have started but I’m not sure if this small area was just a test run to confirm mortar color and brick pattern. Either way, the dark brick with matching mortar really looks great.
We finally have stairs going all the way up to the second floor.
All of the showers have been sealed in prep for the tile.
The exterior brick has also been delivered.
Things continue to progress and I’m looking forward to the installation of the windows in the main living and kitchen area.
After the previous week of cold and rain, this week was mostly sunny which allowed the crew to start the window installation.
Windows were delivered and are scattered throughout the house. You can also see further buildout of the staircase in this photo.
This is one of the sliding doors in the guest suite.
The slide glass door from the flex room out into the backyard.
The sliding doors to the upstairs master.
Here are the windows in the upstairs family area.
Installation will continue for the next week or two and the 10 day weather forecast shows it should be mostly dry so hopefully no more weather delays until they all get done.
