Whew! A lot has changed in 4 weeks, so let's dive right in! We're pretty much done with contractors (well, the sewer still needs to hooked in), so now we're in the nitty-gritty of the finish work, which is suuuuuuuuper tedious. But it's a nice feeling once a project is completed and we can see the progress!
|Thermostat, not functional yet, but installed!
|The rest of the lights - kitchen, breakfast bar, over the sink
|Prepping the bathroom for marble
|Casing the windows
|Proof I am doing some of the work 😅
|Finishing the fascia and soffit on the back deck
|And then finishing the front
|Installing cabinet pulls - about three into the THIRTY SIX we had to install, I regretting picking handles over knobs haha.
|The layout of these cabinets mean one can't have a handle 🤦🤦🤦
|Sealing the marble behind the woodstove
|Designated a liquor cabinet!
|Moving floor over to acclimate
|Modular granite - at a quarter of the cost of traditional granite and it looks BEAUTIFUL
|Starting the floor
|Guest bath vanity
|Beginning interior doors
|Have I mentioned how much I hate both stain and 6-panel doors? No? I do.
|Low key obsessed with these glass panel sliders for all the closets
|Master bath floored
|Master closet too!
|Trimming out the guest bath door
|Guest bath door and coat closet! (Sans the slider bar, we ran out of time).
Also on the job front, I was recently given a wildly unexpected promotion that I'm SUPER excited about. No travel (which will be nice, now that DH is traveling more than he was when I took my previous job) and a significant pay bump means once the house is done I'll have far more discretionary funds for lessons and showing ;) yay! Also will be able to do occasional WFH which will be SO NICE. I officially started yesterday so while things will be overwhelming as I learn the ropes, long term it's going to be amazing. Plus, I have my own office with a window 🤩
