The bricklayers finished the rest of the house. We are very pleased with their work. It looks great and we love the color of the bricks. We made the right decision to change the brick from the ground up on those two sections.
They started doing the trim work on the outside of the house as the bricklayers finished each side. They still have more to do but it’s getting done.
The day finally came where they cut into the house for the new door/doorway into the new hallway that leads to the stairs, new bedroom and bath downstairs. Plus, they cut out the two new closets and installed the doors that were made from the extra space between the wall and the stairs. Love having two more closets for storage!!!
The door to the new storage closet in the garage that is using the space behind the stairs and under the stairs. You can see where the old door use to be for the original storage/shop which is now part of the new downstairs bedroom.
See this little patch of stucco work that needs to be done! This is where the old roof line was on the front of our house before we started construction. Now, we have to patch this up. I think Rob is going to try to watch some “u” tube videos to try and learn how to do it in order to save money. We were told it would cost us a lot to try and get someone to come out to repair this small section. Of course if any of our friends out there in our area know how to do this and want to share their expertise, feel free to share.
Saturday, Rob had the boys outside cleaning up all of the trash and debris left from the different workers. It’s not all done yet but they are doing a fine job.
Ian and Tate got to paint the primer on the patio columns.
Rob got started putting the insulation into the house addition. He told them he would have the addition insulated so the could start sheet rocking on Thursday. Boy, he has a lot of work ahead of him because he has to put the foam insulation in around all of the windows, too. He’s definitely going to have to take some time off of work this week in order to get it done.
As you can see, it’s coming right along. We’re trying to pick out paint colors and need to pick out our floors. Not sure when we are going to have time to go look.
We’re having trouble with paint selections because we plan on painting the entire interior of the house and we want the colors to flow nicely together. That will definitely be a work in progress but we are trying to think ahead. Can’t wait to get some color in the house! Apparently, the owners before us went through and put the same neutral color in the whole house before they sold it. Blah!!! We like color so we’ll see what we come up with.
Really, we need someone who is good with colors to come and help us out!
