Kitchen and Floor Install

The IKEA kitchen cabinets were installed last week. Underneath the blue protective plastic are high gloss white cabinet doors.

Cork floor install was also completed on the stairs.
We chose to go with concrete countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms. Here's a photo of the countertop after it has been installed and received a finish coat.

Electrical and Grading

Rough and final grading was completed this week. We've scheduled the surveyors to prepare the grading certificate and want to ensure that grading is approved by the City before beginning landscaping.

Electrical finishing started today. Most of the lights, electrical receptacles, smoke detectors, doorbells, etc. were installed. The remaining items will be completed after countertops, tile backsplash, and mirrors are completed.

Rails and Second Floor Bath Progress

The metal rails were fitted and installed. Measurements were taken so that the glass can be ordered for the loft guardrail. We will be taking the exterior railing off the front porch to get powdercoated. The interior rails will be painted.

The second floor bath is also showing progress. Both floor tile and mosaic wall tile are finished, and the vanity is in place so that countertops can be measured. Special thanks to Dave for the beautiful custom vanities!
