The floating staircases were encased with wood this week.
The stair lighting was also installed.
Light fixtures continue to be installed. Here is the pendant in the guest house.
The tub in the upstairs master in finally in place.
All the AC units continue to be installed and hooked up.
It also seemed like electricity was on at least partially in the house as a lot of the lights worked. All the smoke detectors were installed as well and I don’t know if they put batteries in right before the move in date, but they were all chirping.
This week we saw a lot of plumbing fixtures being installed.
The sink and faucet in the powder room.
The shower fixtures in the downstairs master.
Shower fixtures in the upstairs master.
Light fixtures installed in the upstairs master. Mirrors are being fabricated.
Kitchen sink fixture.
Toilets are also being installed in all the bathrooms.
Light fixtures are also being installed but a lot are still wrapped in plastic. Here is the one in our master closet.
On the exteriors, the ceiling heaters have been installed in the screened patio area.
Gutters and downspouts are also being installed.
The hope is to get the electricity turned on in the next week and also start the auto-court pavers. Cork flooring is also going into the kitchen and maybe even appliances.
Lots of incremental progress at the house. The kitchen backsplash had grout applied.
The upstairs master bathroom tile is down and waiting on grout.
Here is Gitanjali and our builder picking grout colors.
Hardwood floors is pretty much done. Here is the upstairs master closet.
Upstairs master bedroom.
The outdoor kitchen had the black granite counter top applied with matching sink.
If it ever stops raining long enough for the soil to dry out, the black granite backsplash piece will also be installed.
The next two weeks should get all the floors finished along with the staircase including the cork in the kitchen. We should also get final electrical inspection so we can turn on power to the house and get heat and AC working.
It’s 2019 and progress marches on. We are in the home stretch and will hopefully be complete in the next 2-3 months.
Upstairs master tile is complete and waiting for grout.
Hardwood floor is done except for the upstairs master due to the tile work. Here is Akash’s room.
Here is the upstairs landing area.
If it ever stops raining long enough so the ground can dry out, they can start the auto-court pavers which would really help with all the mud and clay being tracked everywhere.
Slowly but surely, the hardwood floors and bathroom tile work continues.
The upstairs master is very close to completion.
The hardwood floor installation upstairs has also started.
The limestone outdoor patio is compete and has been grouted.
The limestone at the front door entry way is also started.
I’m hopeful that all the tile and floor work will be done by next week!
Some more progress was made before the holidays.
Hardwoods started in the guest house.
Good progress was made on the tile in the upstair master bathroom.
Hardwood floors are mostly installed in the downstair areas. Sanding and staining will happen near the very end of the project.
The limestone lueders are also being installed in the screened patio area.
Tile work also started in the upstairs master. I’m really excited to see how these turn out.
They also started the cap work on the exposed concrete on the exterior of the house. The original plan was board formed concrete, but the conditions on the day of the pour (100+ degrees) made it difficult to achieve. So we are going for a smooth finish and a lot of it will be hidden by dirt and plantings anyway.
