January 31, 2012

Bet you didn't know we were siding the house in blue?? Neither did we!

Unfortunately the white siding and white trim (and white snow!) aren't meshing. There will be painting to come once spring appears. Bummer.

TA DA! Believe it or not, the floors are being installed.

Check out the ceiling as well. We're loving the details as they SLOWLY come together.

Another kitchen/dining room shot.

Two additional doors that were once windows have been bricked in - this one and one upstairs.

Child labor - the girls working on installing the floor... Danger, huh?

Looking from the front hall into the kitchen and dining rooms.

The central work station and pile of wood for the ceilings. The whole first floor will have wood.

The second newly bricked window-turned-door.

There has been a lot of thought and planning put into the nosing and trim details for the two curved stair wells. It's starting to come together here...

Kitchen stairwell.

Front foyer stair well.

Front foyer again.

Unpacking the chandelier from Currey & Company. We had to get it out of the family room in order to move on to the floor and ceilings.

The girls check the chandelier out where it will safely hide in my studio until it gets hung.

On to fireplaces... The master bedroom has been started.

And the family room fireplace is complete!

A shot from a few days earlier.

We used Castle Rock stone in Buff/Grey Chilton from Madison Block and Stone. I love it!
So that's where we stand on the last day of January. More flooring and siding has gone in. The bathroom floors will begin soon - our 600 lb pedestal tub arrives Thursday... yikes!! We're still taking it one-day-at-a-time but it's finally starting to feel like there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Bring on February!
