new doors and floors

Last week our concrete slab at the garden level floor was poured. What a difference to walk downstairs and see concrete.

We also had all of our doors delivered last week. At 7'-6" tall and usually 3'-0" wide they are truly stunning. Here is a pair of doors that will get installed on the parlor floor.
Work also continues on the parlor floor stair opening which looks down to the kitchen on the garden floor.

Next week a whole team of sheetrockers are scheduled to close the rest of the walls up throughout the townhouse. This means no more visible plumbing in the bathrooms and much more running millwork and trim up in the house.
In preparation the team has added firestopping at all floors around the pipe runs. It's going to be great to see these walls closed up.

An un-glamorous but very important shot of the firestopping.
