Construction Update: Wet Areas Galore
The details seem to drag on forever. While the foundation and frame went up almost instantaneously, the smaller pieces inside seem to just slog along and not surprisingly, our closing date has been moved….again. There was some pretty good progress this week though.
Early in the week, the construction crew installed mirrors in the bathrooms.
And enclosed our shower.
And they installed screens on all the windows.
Next, they put HVAC vents in all the rooms. Officially, no more holes in our ceiling. Also, the AC system is in place, but not pictured because it’s too muddy to go back there 😉
The front continues to be bricked….s…l….o…w….l…y….. You may remember last week that the crew ran out of our white stone. It was supposed to be delivered either last Friday or this past Tuesday, but here we are on Thursday and not a spec of it in sight. So the house just sits like this.
Yesterday, there was a lot of progress to wet areas inside the house. The sink was added to the guest bath, and toilets and faucets were added to all the bathrooms.
The water heater was also installed.
More bathroom faucets.
And most of the counters in the kitchen have been installed.
And our sink!
We’re still waiting on the right stair railings and front porch light. Later this week, we’re also supposed to get the backsplash in our kitchen. Disclaimer: I know my counters clash with the cabinets. There’s a super awesome DIY that’s going to happen as soon as we officially own this place and I’m really excited to share the transformation with you.
Thanks for coming along on my construction adventure.
