All that can be done is done.
Insulation is complete, and vapor barrier is set to go. Waiting on inspections.
Bit of a setback with the weather. Storm started around 3 pm on Monday afternoon.
Less than 1/4 mile visibility
Blizzard conditions on Interstate 95 on Tuesday
After about 26 hours, conditions were reduced to winter storm.
Early Wednesday morning, the storm finally stopped. The snowplows were kind enough to deposit 3 more feet of snow at the base of the driveway, after it had been cleared.
Week 4 begins. Beginning to get tired of pizza.
Framed an opening for the subwoofer enclosure
Plumber returned today. Installed PEX for our kitchen plumbing. Shouldn’t have any issues distinguishing hot and cold pipes anymore.
Water line for the refrigerator
Island wall was unburied and we discovered new electric
Beam covered in plywood, apparently to get ready for the drywall.
Electric rough-in started today. Lots of recessed lighting, and placing of boxes for the ceiling fixtures.
A neat, clean job. Electrician is very particular about how wires are run.
Recessed lighting in the living/seating area, to be accentuated with a some well placed floor lamps.
Everything is meticulously labeled.
Two recessed cans over my window seat. This will be my favorite spot to curl up.
Outside, window trim and siding was fixed. Yes, we will have a two-tone house for a bit, but the drafts are gone!
Timing is everything. Today was sunny, windless, and unseasonably warm at a balmy 41° F. Perfect day for new windows.
Out with the old,
In with the the new.
My favorite part is the new window over the soon-to-be kitchen sink. I now have a much expanded view into the backyard.
I will no longer have to crawl on top of the counter to see what’s happening back there.
Ample light in the new space.
Busy day today…
The new windows arrived.
Front of the island was built and is in place.
Pocket door was framed and track set.
Framing for new kitchen window completed.
Ordered the pendant lights and new ceiling fixtures. Mock up of the pendant lights over the island.
The new space was accepted and approved of.
