Our schedule for the coming weeks is pretty much focused on the inside of the house where we lay flooring, cabinets are installed, painting is done, doors are installed and trim carpentry is started (not necessarily in that order). We're still working on the cable rail for the interior stairwell which is not an easy solution - the cost of custom newel posts is prohibitive so we're now focusing on less costly pre-fab solutions. Getting answers from the plethora of dealers has been challenging - maybe business is that good they don't need ours but I suspect it's more that nobody is watching their in-box. We may end up spending time ordering parts and designing our own solution.
Gutters and trim materials are ordered so the gutter system should be going on the house in the near future as well (once exterior painting is complete).
|Kitchen cabinet minus the doors on the sink base - taking pictures in an active workshop is difficult due to dust in the air and on everything around-|
|The basement bath vanity which is constructed of clear coated poplar.|
|Master bath cabinets constructed of maple|
|Doors for the master bath surround (left) and the downstairs linen closet (poplar on the right)|
|Master bath granite slab that will comprise the vanities, shower ledge/curb and the tub surround - and that's James, our fabricator with his hand on the granite.|

|And from the opposite end|
|This shows the name and "LF" for leather finish (the name is on the tag - Juprana Venetian Lt). As you can see here it's not a highly reflective finish.|
