sheet rock

It was so great to walk into our site meeting yesterday and see nice, clean, white walls. Bathroom and plumbing walls are still open to the studs for their plumbing inspections and many ceilings remain un-sheetrocked but what is up really makes a world of difference.

The gym/ guestroom with it's curved dormer

the plywood and temporary joists are where the new top floor skylight will go

the master bedroom with windows looking north

the master bedroom sitting room with windows facing south

The areaway is also really coming along. You can see that they've added plywood to the stairs- that's to protect the amazing nosing and treads that they've prepared for brownstone. Unfortunately you can also see our gas pipes running right over the stairs on the left. They need to be repaired and moved which will hopefully be happening soon.

Next week we'll have our plumbing inspection. Once we are approved and paperwork is passed through the Department of Buildings we will be able to pour the rest of our garden floor slab.
