Construction Update 46

25 Nov

The crew came back with the granite backsplash.

It is the same granite as the countertops so it matches perfectly. They drilled the hole for the faucet and ran some more grout around the edges. They had most of the pieces necessary to finish out around the fireplace with the same granite, but they didn’t bring the hearth piece to set on the floor. The other pieces were cut to be placed on top of the hearth and since it was missing the other parts were too short and could not be installed until they come back with the hearth. Come on people, get it together! The insulation crew came in today and finished the insulation so now we can turn on the heat. We have the wood flooring stacked in the rooms upstairs, but the heat needs to be on to bring the wood up to room temperature. This keeps the swelling and contracting of the flooring pieces to a minimum. Hopefully, they can get the floor down next week, then all that will be left is the staircase and cleaning up!
