I'm long overdue to update the pics in this thread. We have, as usual, been working our butts off. We are down to mostly detail and finish work, which is very slow and actually kinda boring to take pics of, until it is done. But now I've taken a few, so here they are.
My son and I have gotten started putting insulation in the attic. First layer is R13 running between the trusses. When that is all down, we'll put in a layer of R19 running perpendicular to the first layer. This work is no fun, but better now than when it gets hot again.
My wife has been working hard on the kitchen. She put in the backsplash last week over the sink area and the stove area. My pictures to not do it justice!
I've been working on the molding around windows, doors and baseboards. Most of the molding hasn't been finished, so it's still rough looking. The wood is all antique lumber salvaged from the old elevator.
There is quite a bit more molding to be installed. There will be crown molding which will pretty much mirror what we have put down low.
We've also been working to get the bathrooms finished. Made massive progress, but there is much more to do. My wife has done the bulk of the work in these areas.
Here is the backsplash over the sink in the guest bath -
She's done more in there, but I forgot to take pics!
Here is what she has been doing in the master bath (I've been helping...)-
This is how it looks in the toilet area. Like an indoor outhouse!
We put a storm door on the back door. Let's in a lot of nice light, and a nice breeze -
We've also been putting down transition strips between the various rooms and types of flooring.
So, that's most of it, but we are doing other things too of course. We put a hot water heater in the laundry room, and we are getting ready to install cabinets in there too.
We've been putting cedar in my wife's bedroom closet, putting up more lights, completing electrical circuits and putting up more wall socket covers, switch covers, and outdoor lights.
There's just so much!!
