New!!! - The Ceramic Tile has Started

Thursday, November 30, 2006 - We have started the ceramic tile in the Porch Room.


The tile is set to a 45 degree to the room and balances with the point of the Porch Room very well.



The painters have primed the walls and have the first coat of finish paint on the ceilings and most of the walls.   This gets us ready for the balance of the flooring to start.


The tub room "bladder" has been installed.  This is to keep any water from getting into the wood support system.  The tub will be installed next week. 

Exterior work is complete

Friday, November 17, 2006 - The driveway and the grades around the house have been set and completed.  We have the driveway closed off for a week or more to set up.


The drive edges have been cleaned up as you go into the house from the road.


The turn around has been set and the tie into the garage completed.  The grades at the entry side of the house and at the side of the entry deck are set.


The knockdown texture has been placed on the ceiling and the second floor and garage are ready for the painting to begin.  The balance of the drywall will be complete in the next few days.

Exterior work is being completed

Tuesday, November 14, 2006 - The condensing units for the A/C have been placed at the side of the garage and the exterior grading is being completed.


The units have been placed at the side of the garage so that you can not see them from the bedroom.  The condenser lines have been placed in pvc lines from the house to each unit.


The excavation around the house and the driveway is almost complete.  The concrete apron at the front of the garage is poured.


Tuesday, November 7, 2006 - The exterior is complete and looks great.  The drywall is still going on and we should be doing the final sanding of the walls in the next few days.


The ceilings and the walls are almost complete.



The exterior is finish painted and looks very good.  The gas meter, cable and phone have been installed to the garage panel location.


The garage is almost complete.

The drywall still continues.

Wednesday, November 1, 2006 - The drywall continues.  This is a very long process with the coats and the sanding.



additional views of the living area.



The phone line has been ran and is installed on the power box location.


The garage is drywalled and has the first coat of tape/mud.  The exterior of the house has been finished and the final coat of stain has been applied.  It looks very nice.
