Lots of changes have happened up at the house while he's been gone, so I'm putting a lot of pictures up today.
The exterior is SOOO Close to being finished. We need to have the soffit and fascia finished. Also, Emily pointed out a couple of areas that seem to be missing either stucco or stone. It's nice to have a new, fresh set of eyes looking things over, because I hadn't even noticed those spots.
The setting sun really impacts the colors in the picture above. The picture below (of the garage view) is the most accurate.
We have kitchen cabinets!
The dish cabinet can't be installed until the countertops are finished since it sits right on top of the counter. Noah immediately claimed it as "his house".
Now these are interesting. I think they are the legs to support the granite overhang. The question is why are they white and not stained? Who decided that? Why was I not asked about this decision? And, should I let them install it and see how it looks or should I just say right away that this is a mistake and they need to get the brown legs out here before the granite shows up?
Rivermill was also responsible for the fireplace surround. Tex did a great job bringing my vision to reality and managed to work around an installation mistake that we didn't catch until almost too late. I'll get a better picture when I have daylight and don't have to use the flash.
The tile guys are finally coming back up tomorrow to start on the shower, so they should be able to get the fireplace and the foyer floor finished too.
The closets are GLARING white! Good thing our clothes are colorful because the walls in that room really needs to be toned down.
This was a nice surprise to see. Jesse came up and covered all the outside corners to protect them where cords may get dragged around them or workers may be careless walking past them. He said he'll get them up around the island and the outer kitchen cabinets too. When he goes the extra mile like that it just reassures me that he is really trying to give us his best work.
