It’s been fun seeing all of the interior details coming together. Murphy & Co’s design and Hendel Home’s team of really talented and skilled folks putting it all together is producing some great results!
I found Reed in a dark room with a single light so that he could more easily see imperfections that need attention.
Grouting the shower floor in the master bath.
Krysta and Marita discussing wall stains and how they’ll look with the floor.
Landon had to make the holes for the downlights over the kitchen island a bit larger. Since the pilot bit for a hole saw was useless for this he had to make a jig to guide it. The saw still bites though so this is a tough job.
We are fortunate to be getting a painting (or two!) from the very talented southern Mississippi artist Ali Stayer (@alistayerart) for our dining room. Here the bosses and Bob are discussing what size it should be.
Ready for sanding and first coat of primer.
The bosses discussing floor tile options for the guest bath that came out pinker then expected. They decided that it was worth trying some different grout options to see if the color could be muted a bit rather than rip up all of the tile that’s already in.
Bob and Marita debating peg placement in the breezeway.
A bit of frost on the strike plate and contact plunger. We have a contact plunger like this on all of the exterior door locks so that we can quickly see what doors are locked.
The final selection for wall stain in the living room.
The painters were quick to cut out one window for light.
Once cabinets are in a lot of things have to be moved a bit so that they line up properly. It’s a lot of work to get everything right.
I’m constantly fascinated by things like how the wind will keep snow from building up around large round things.
Milton and his crew have stuff scattered all over. These are doors for the cabinets in the lower level changing room and bathroom.
Sergey staining the vanities for the master bath.
Mark hogged out some material from the back sides of these corbels so that they will lay flat against the wall.
Landon trimming above the benches between the entry and dining room. Mark constructing the lower step for the main staircase.
Our city has a few smaller snowblowers for keeping the bikeways clear all winter.
In the foreground is the tread for the lower step that mark has cut out.
Some color for the middle guest bath.
The guys from Cityscape Painting do a good job making sure the details are done right.
Jorge sanding the first coat in the north guest bath.
All of the woodwork in the upper level sitting room is primed.
Landon had to cut out some sheetrock to make sure that the trim around the soapstone backsplash behind the range lays perfectly flat.
