stone and wood

Interior finishes continue to progress in the townhouse. Look at that walnut column! It's only out for a photo op but it should be installed permanently in another month. You can also see the operable paneled ceiling and mechanical equipment above.

Our dining room plaster ceiling medallion has also arrived on site. This is only half of the oval but you can see it's quite lovely.
The front door is on site and ready to be installed along with it's surround and decorative panels and trim.
The stone slabs are all installed in the kitchen. Next come appliances.

His and her master bath stone slab vanity tops are also in. The veining is so spectacular.

The master bedroom fireplace surround and hearth are going in today. The blue color and the veins are even better in person.

stone slabs

Work on the townhouse continues despite the crumby weather.

Our kitchen countertops are fabricated and on site. The veining and the colors are absolutely amazing. The stone is a quartzite which means that it is very hard and much more stain resistant than marble.

The master bathroom medicine cabinets are installed and the stone slabs for these rooms will be installed soon as well.

The laundry room millwork is installed too. Look at all that storage!
Soon, we hope to have the rear garden fences built. Here is a little section of the ipe that was put up.

window guards and wood work

Window guards for the house will be made soon. We have narrowed it down to two options.

The walnut columns have also arrived on site and they are truly amazing.

Look at the size of the library fire place! It stands about 5'-6" tall and will be painted and installed once the stone hearth and surround are installed.
