The sun has come out for a few days in February. The contractor has taken this opportunity to get the exterior of the house painted. The painters started in the back and are working toward the front. The neighbor's cars, houses, landscaping and pets have been masked off to ensure no over spray finds it's way to the wrong place. The 1st coat went on Thursday and the second coat will be sprayed today.
The old concrete retaining wall in the front of the house has finally been removed and a stacked rock wall no holds the front yard back from the driveway. The old concrete driveway has been removed, and the new driveway will be poured soon. In the back yard, the elevated exterior deck railing is being installed this week and the stair from the back yard to the deck will be constructed next week.
On the interior, the hardwood and tile flooring work is nearly done. All the door trim, window trim and window and railing sills have been installed. There are some splashes of color upstairs where the owners have made some final color decisions and the interior painting has begun.
Some plumbing fixtures have been installed and most of the cabinets are in place. The owners have been spending some evenings putting together closet organization systems. The completion date is just about a month away.
