The House - Week 27

Week 27 - April 27, 2015

More good progress was made this week. Things are really starting to look good.

Master shower grout completed.

The railing is now pretty much complete.

Hot sauce.

The basement.  Nearly all prepped for painting.

The blue house.  Spot Lyla and Kate.

Fox 13 News.  I often see news trucks up here whenever there is a new development or fuss over the landslide.  These guys were going door to door looking for somebody willing to spout off on camera.

The slatted ceiling.  This was a late add to the project, and we're really glad that we did.

The girls were in a really photogenic mood during our visit to the house today.  I love the picture above and the next two pictures because you've got Lyla posing in the foreground and Ada going to check out the upstairs tub in the background.

I was going to post that this was our fireplace mantle, but it looks nothing like our fireplace mantle.  It must have been for another house, but they brought it here to work on it because all of their tools were here?

Ada, Kate and Lyla.

Kate, standing outside the theater room.

Lyla was just sitting here squatting and Kate wanted to join her.

Caulking the door frames and trim.

The blue house.

Painting has commenced!  Starting first by staining the railings.

Some of the railings had to be stained in place.

The texture coating of the deck has been added.

Sanding and prepwork on the slatted ceiling.

The House - Week 26

Week 26 - April 20, 2015

Now that I'm a full year behind..., I've got to keep posting about the house for posterity's sake I guess.

This week was a good week.  Lots got done.

Tile in the master shower.

Tile around the master bath.

And my only contribution to picking tile colors or finishes in the house.  The master shower floor.  I love it.

Shelving in the closets.

Basement bathroom tile surround.

Lyla chilling on a gravel pile.

Alison testing the tub.

We visited the house after art lessons one night.  The girls had a friend in tow.

The railings were quite time-consuming.  Here the posts are installed.

More posts.

More posts

Painting of the exterior house started.  First the white trim.

Painting the trim.

Our first view of the blue on the front porch.

More progress on the railing.

Upstairs bathroom.

More painting.

About now is where Alison and I looked at each other and asked each other if we were ok with a blue house.

More progress on the railing.

Another view.

Painting the back of the house.  This was a big job.

Cubbies in the mud room.

Next week: More finish work and prepping for painting.
