ceilings and floors

The coiffured ceiling has just started taking shape on the parlor floor. You can see where they've installed some trim in one of the far portions.

Here is the view from the parlor floor looking up. Isn't the underside of the curved stair amazing?
Tile continues to be installed throughout the house. Here you can see the penny tiles in one of the third floor bathrooms.
Most exciting however is the travertine floor that's almost complete at the garden level family room and kitchen. The color is an amazing green gray.
The kitchen and family room millwork will be installed soon!

garden floor, tile, and lighting

The progress over the past week on the garden floor has been amazing. The stair landing was built, the windows and doors were installed, the raised fireplace hearth was poured today, and the temporary lighting has been removed throughout the whole house.

Tile installation is just about complete in one of the bathrooms on the third floor. The other third floor bath has it's beige wall tile up as well.
Stone tile installation has also just started in the master bathrooms. Here is a shot of one of the shower floors- spring white stone from Complete Tile.

The travertine stone floor will be put down early next week in the kitchen and family room on the garden floor.

tile, paint, and doors

The townhouse continues to look a little more finished every week! This week we saw the completion of some bathroom wall tile and some movable paint samples to carry though the house to try in different rooms and lighting.

We've also just about finished our stucco color selection for the brownstone facade. One more go-round and we should have it right. Below you can see the original house color as well as an earlier, lighter option and a darker more likely final choice.

Framing and GWB is just about complete on the garden floor. The new Marvin bi-fold doors also just got installed

How amazing do they look? There are only two more windows in the mechanical room to be installed. Early next week the travertine floor will be put down on the garden level. Kitchen cabinets shouldn't be too far after that.
