more interior work

The interior of the townhouse continues to progress. Here is a view of the parlor floor foyer all framed out with it's door hung.

The library has all of it's full height millwork installed. The fireplace awaits its mantel and sheet rock.

The garden floor millwork is partially installed. Her you can see a built in desk and the bar cabinet.
The two main rooms on the master bedroom floor both have paint colors up. Here is the sitting room...
... and here is the master bedroom itself.
The master dressing room millwork has also been installed. Look at those shoe drawers towards the door!
The stair risers are also getting their first coat of primer.
Outside the ipe deck has been laid at the rear garden. Plants and debris still need to be removed.
The newly repaired gas line is also in. This means we're not far away from our boiler running.

kitchen installation

The kitchen arrived on site last Friday and it will be installed over the next week or so.

The cabinets arrive on site primed white but they will be hand painted a warm off-white color which will pull from our travertine floor.

The parlor floor wood floor should also be completed in another week

How beautiful is the simple border strip? And of course, since the stair was uncovered, I had to take some photos of it...
The master bathroom stone tiling continues to be amazing. Here's a shot of her shower.

While I was on site today they laid the very first ipe board at the rear garden deck.

Here are three very bold vibrant color options for one of the top floor rooms.

And just for fun... What the site looked like one year ago today!

No walls, no floors, and the old, recycled stair.

No roof and no doors! We've come a long way.

finishes and exterior work

The townhouse areaway is just about finished. Soon railings and another stucco color will top off the outside entrance. Aren't the steps and bluestone pavers great?

The rear garden ipe deck is just about ready to be put down as well. Here's a shot from the top floor looking down on the pre-cast footings.

Of course finish work continues on the interior of the house too. Here you can see that they're laying the last of the wood floor. Look at that decorative border!

One of the master bathrooms also has just about all of it's stone tile complete. Next will come fixtures and the vanity. The first image is of the shower and the next is of the bathroom itself.

The top floor bar is also in (although the uppers will be getting doors) and you can see that they've prepared the skylight shaft for it's faux skylight which will be fabricated and installed shortly.

This Friday the kitchen and family room millwork will be delivered along with the master bedroom dressing room cabinets.
