Right after the (long) holiday break ended, Kevin and the team got together to make a plan for finishing the house.
Here’s his list of the remaining work to do:
- tile the pool surround
- tile the stairs
- install toilets, sinks, bidet units (i.e. bathroom finish work)
- install terrace railing and stair hand rails
- install kitchen
- finish outside fountain
- finish fireplace
- finish painting
- install lighting fixtures
- Johnny’s items – closet doors and nicchie finish work
- ENEL — permanent house electrical line (the only challenge I see, and, the house can continue to function in the interim on the current job site electrical supply)
- install internal doors
- install bug screens, etc. — the finish work associated with the windows, done after workmen stop traipsing through the house
- final heat test
- fotovolts connected to inverters, system test, etc.
- note, too, that the road will be competed…the final stratum of material goes on once everybody stops going to the house on a daily basis with heavy vehicles
It seems like a lot to us, as these details always take more time than you expect, but Kevin’s estimate is that it will all be done in just a few weeks, by early February at the latest.
I’m still expecting it will take a few weeks longer, but it really doesn’t matter either way. We won’t be able to get to Italy and use it right away — though we sure wish we could.
