First of two posts this week. Painting inside & out along with the beginning of wood floor installation.
Sauna and Sauna changing room (below) were insulated. Almost ready for finishing.
Custom outdoor kitchen compliments of Topo.
Primer paint for interior.
View of our house from our neighbor. We’ll plant something along the lower wall and maybe try to squeeze in a tree or two to help soften the impact. I’m really glad we were able to do half the garage and the space above as a separate building instead of making this wider and higher.
Sam laughing as Spencer tries to hold a piece of plywood in the wind as rain heads towards us.
José fitting a stone.

First flooring laid out in the north guest room and ready to be nailed.
José cutting a stone to fit in to the front wall.
Bob being entertained by Vasily. It’s amazing all of the issues that Bob is faced with and either knows exactly what to do or how to figure it out. Or better yet, how to avoid them with some thoughtful pre-planning. I’m thankful to have him on our project and glad I’m not trying to GC this project myself.
There were some slight dips in the cement floor in the lower level rec room so they filled them with extra glue and let it set for a couple of hours before doing the rest of the floor.
