The time since Christmas has mostly been continued interior and exterior trim and painting along with a bit of insulation work.
More bondo inspired chicken pox – on the stairs going down to the lower level.
Tile in the master shower is almost complete. I think this looks great!
There was some consternation with the floor in this guest bath. What was installed was a lot pinker than the samples.
The transoms were installed. In some ways these kind of mess with the open feeling of this north<>south hallway. Maybe they’ll be less intrusive once the paper is removed from the glass?
A mid afternoon sunset in the conservatory!
Mike keeps us entertained with stories. This one about one of his drones!
All of the doors for the lower level.
Mike taking a break between stories to cut out downlights in the dining room 🙂
Brackets for the window boxes. The plumbing and electrical (Christmas lights) were installed correctly on this one.
The plumbing and electrical are kind of wrong on these. They should be on the inside of the other brackets so that they are less noticeable.
Shawn cutting out speaker locations.
Mike (Select Mechanical) wiring a controller for in-floor hydronic heating.
Tim wiring a manifold for in-floor hydronic heating. He’s pushing a temp probe from here to the lower level guest bedroom. They use both a temp probe in the cement and an air temp thermostat in the room.
Painters do one round of patching with filler, prime, sand, fill with bondo (red), sand (photo below), prime, fill any additional bits, sand and final enamel.
Shawn moving an outlet over an inch so that it is symmetrical with the one on the other side of the range.
My sweetie has been scouring the web for deals on furniture. This arrived last week.
We’ve had a number of melt lines show up on the roof that shouldn’t be there. These are either from warm and moist interior air getting in the the rafter vents (between the trusses), thermal bridging through the trusses themselves or warm and moist interior air leaking up between conjoined trusses.
The in-floor hydronic heating system is nearly complete.
Lower level windows.
The porch fireplace got fire brick – but they did it kind of sideways from what we expected.
