Since last we spoke....
We've got walls! Whoohoo!
The dry wall is in, taped, and sanded. I think the next step is primer followed by trim work or trim work followed by primer, but whatever-
...we've got walls!
And a front door! It's not stained yet, and they still need to add siding to the front porch section of the exterior, but the door had to be up before they did that so step one=check.
The stone masons have been super busy and they are so skilled. It's a father-son-cousin-team and I love their work. There's an art to fitting the stone together so that it looks beautiful, and they've definitely mastered it-
When you make your stone selection you're looking at a little four foot by four foot sample wall and of course there's a lot of variation in color from one pallet to the next, so we're really happy with the finished product.
Wait, there's more! As of today we've also got tongue and groove in our screened in porch ceiling-
I need something pretty to look at when I settle in for an afternoon nap by the fireplace out there, so I'm relieved to know this is happening. The front porch and the back covered deck will both get this same ceiling treatment. It's so exciting to see forward motion!
Is there such a thing as too many exclamation points?
Not when you're talking house build progress there's not!!
