I made a quick trip over lunch time down to the house to see what was going on the week of Thanksgiving. It turns out quite a lot.
The tile work continues in the downstairs master.
The penny tile has been put down on the floor to Akash’s room.
The carpenters are back for the built in banquet seating in the dining room.
Finally, the solar company is installing the tracks for the solar panels.
I’m not sure how much time all the contractors are taking off for Thanksgiving, but it is nice to see so much activity and progress since we last visited just a few days ago.
The painting is finally wrapped up and the bathroom tile has started.
Akash’s bathroom is a combination of subway on the walls and penny tile on the floors.
The downstairs bathroom is a large format tile.
Countertops have also been installed but are currently covered up so no photos yet on those. Ceiling light installation has also started.
One thing I love is the flush air registers for the AC and heat. It is one of those little details that really ends up looking great.
I’m not sure how much work will be done Thanksgiving week, but I’m hopeful they will get more tile knocked out to keep this project moving.
All the rain in Austin has kept the site pretty muddy but we’ve been mostly rain free for the past week which gave the crews some time to get in and try and cleanup
You can tell it is still pretty sloppy but this is 100% better than it was a week ago.
The painters are continuing to apply the stain to the interior and exterior cypress. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but the slight whitewash really mutes the yellows in the wood and nicely blends into the other materials.
The central MDF wall has been painted and the bathroom cabinets have been stained.
For the bathrooms, the oak has been finished with a light stain.
Painting is wrapping up and the tile work is about to start along with the wood floors.
The painting saga continues. Most of the cabinet faces are now complete.
The MDF wall and kitchen cabinets have been primed with a tinted primer.
Rooms have been primed and waiting their final coat of paint.
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.
All the windows are being taped up to protect from any paint.
All the drawers are being removed to prime for painting.
Another shot of window protection and all cabinet drawers off for painting.
Painting will continue for the next few weeks. It is a long process, but I’m looking forward to seeing the end results.
It’s been a rainy week here but the interior work continues. The two noticeable changes this week or the built-in beds for the kid’s room and the guest suite.
The kid’s room has a queen bed with a twin trundle that will pull out.
The guest room has a king bed.
Cabinet installation is wrapping up and then prepping for paint starts.
