A few weeks ago Bob spent some time organizing all of the materials scattered around the lot, clearing out space for parking and even spray painting parking lines. That was all for weeks like this when there are dozens of craftsfolk working all over. At one point there were 26 vehicles here.
Mark, Scott and Ryan from Artisan Cabinet & Design installing Kitchen cabinets. When Mark bought the company from his boss he renamed it ‘Artisan’ which is a good descriptor of what they do. After working through a lot of design details with Mark, Marita, Krysta and TJ it’s been fun seeing his ideas in real life.
José and José working on the front walk.
Chief tile dude Bill! He and his crew are artists. Like literally. Bill is a really good photographer, one of those people you kind of hate when you compare their stuff to your own. Among his crew are some musicians who’ve done both studio and live work for people like Victoria IX as well as play in their church worship band. Oh, and they also do amazing tile work. Some of it that I’ve seen in other houses is truly tile art.
Bob and John discussing interior trim and panel details.
Lot’s of pocket screws for this paneling from Artisan Cabinets.
Owen cutting a window sill. I’d never seen anyone use a jig saw upside down before so tried it that night. It works!
Closet in the north guest room.
Some of the locks on the Loewen windows are torked up a bit. Hmmmm.
Tight fit for the window sill.
Matt installing a door jamb in the north guest room.
José cutting the brick edge.
This has been a very colorful fall.
Matt still working on the door jamb. The rough opening for this door was apparently much wider than it was supposed to be… Or the door narrower.
Guys from Topo LLC installing a drainage mat. This will allow water that accumulates on the porch to drain down to the terrace.
José making progress. It’s a long line to cut.
Undercutting the door trim to just the right height for the tile. The orange stuff to the left is something that they put down to reduce problems of cracking.
A couple of things needed to be moved around the corner.
