Progress on the Interior Flooring, Bathrooms, Electrical, and More

Now that the work is focused on finishing the inside, lots of projects are underway at the same time. We got a large collection of photos today showing some of this work.

Bathrooms

Pieces of each bathroom are in place, including some tile and fixtures, but more work remains for after the winter holiday.

Electrical and Stairs

Many of the photos were of different electrical connections. They’re not very interesting to look at, but they’re at the stage where they can add switches and outlets,

All the structural work for the stairs is complete. Tiling and railings will come next.

Interior Tiling And Some Work on the Heating System

Work is progressing in bits and pieces on many fronts inside the house these days.

They are working to install the top floor tiling. It looks fine to me, but Anne was immediately concerned about the spaces and the dark lines between the tiles. She had asked that these tiles be laid very close together, with a minimal grout line.

Kevin reassured us that the floor will look fine once it is all laid and the grout is applied.

Tiling and a Whole Lot More With Some Great Photos of the View

It’s been about 3 weeks since we received any photos. Anne asked Kevin if work was progressing, and he responded with a bundle of photos showing a lot of different projects underway.

The front of the house is looking very nice. Work is continuing on the retaining wall up the hill.

Anne looked at the photo below and said it looks like a crime scene, with a chalk outline of a murdered boa constrictor.
