I’ve got new photos of the house, the exterior brick is almost all finished, the brick layer will be coming back to finish some details, build the step in the patio at the back door and to build the front and back courtyard and patio area brick posts. But for now we have a bricked house! In the first two photos you can see the copper roofing on the little front porch area and over the dormers on my office and utility room. There’s a little bit of roofing that needs to be replaced around the dormers and then they’ll take that cover material and the boards off the roof. The copper is already starting to get a pretty patina on it. I’ll try to take more photos when the light is better. This particular day was a little gloomy. Dave’s also done a lot of clean up around the house… especially in the back. Can’t wait to see the exterior shutters going on the house and the little courtyard in the front, its going to really dress the house up!
The living room is almost filled up with cabinetry. We’re going to have a WHOLE lot of storage area in the home and these cabinets are going to be fabulous, especially in the utility room where they cover EVERY wall to the ceiling! Those tall units are going into the closets, all of our drawers will be in the closets, uncluttering the bedrooms was a very important thing for me, these will certainly give us plenty of storage without chests of drawers and dressers in the bedrooms. All the vanities and closet units are finished except the master bath vanity, Dave’s shower area cabinets, and above toilet storage cabinets. Those will come next and the kitchen will be last, we have a good bit of trim material to wait for before they start the kitchen. By Wednesday of this week the trim will be delivered for the house, I can’t wait to see it all!
We’re going to be painting all the cabinetry and antiquing the kitchen and master bath areas. Should be so pretty!!
