We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel at least for the interior. Cleanup has started in prep to finish both the concrete and hardwood floors.
The fireplace hearth was poured.
We also have our permanent electric meter installed and the solar will be hooked in shortly so we can start getting credit from the panels.
The guest bath tile is finished and will be grouted early next week.
The cork floor was also installed the kitchen but is currently covered so no picture of that yet.
Next week, the driveway will hopefully get started as well as the installation of the steel planters in the auto-court.
The rain and drizzle held off long enough to get the paving in the auto-court finished.
It was also finally dry enough to get the granite slabs installed over the outdoor kitchen.
The tile in the guest room finally arrived and work has resumed.
Lots of other little details are being finished up like door hardware, closet rods, towel holders, etc. I’m actually starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The auto court area is getting prepped for pavers now that we’ve finally had a break from the rain.
The guest house privacy screen is also complete.
The fireplace hearth has also been poured.
Electrical work continued this weekend to call in an inspection on Monday to get the meter added to the house.
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.
