Construction Update 31

19 Oct

Our new home was abuzz with activity today. The Heat and Air crew came back to finish installing the AC units. The painters were working, the primary contractor was installing crown molding, and the tile crew was working on the shower. At one time I looked over from my shop and there must have been 15 trucks in front of the house. Now we are making some progress. Then I remembered I am paying all those people, OUCH!

They are putting up the crown molding 3 scaffolds high in the foyer.

That’s a long way up there.

The painters put a coat of stain on the stair treads and rails.

This is some of the fancy trim work Sweet Thing and the contractor came up with around the windows in the great room and my office. He is custom making this, cutting all those little pieces himself.

This is some of the corner work he is doing. This part hasn’t been caulked or painted yet so it looks a little rough. More to come.

    Wow! The trim work is beautiful. Your wife really knows how to make a lovely window. I love the texture of the ceiling too…such a very nice (big) place.

      Thanks Diva, Sweet Thing is really talented at a lot of things. Yeah, the house is too big for just the two of us, but we have been saving up for this all of our lives. If times get really hard I expect to have relatives come a knockin’ looking for somewhere to stay. I’ll have to let them in, but I will certainly put them to work to earn their keep. No welfare around this homestead!
