Day 279

Front porch (unstained and lacking handrail) finally complete. In the past 10 days the hardwood floor and baseboard trim has been completed and now its a matter of keep the various subs working their punch lists including plumbing, trim, drywall, electrical, low voltage, elevator, landscape and appliance installation. Stay tuned, absentee/late subs cause plenty of stress and illustrate how anything can go wrong, impacting move in date.

Day 269

Today the hardwood (pre-finished) was installed in the master bedroom. The race to make it in by Christmas continues... 
The hardwood guys were very accommodating Saturday, working eleven hours including placing it at the location of the glass & metal post railing. And equally so, on Sunday, Thadd (Houston Stair) was onsite placing posts and measuring for the glass panels that mount between them.

Day 266

Clerestory ceiling at night, illuminated by 1700 miniature LED lights.
Operating water feature, behind raised beds.
Kitchen coming together. 
Hardwood floor installation begins tomorrow. 
And one step back; the electrician discovered a line that was not connected. So he's punching holes in the drywall ceiling hunting for ... well something.

Day 262

The race is on to be in by Christmas. A few shots from around the project; the exterior is essentially complete. Hmmm, maybe we'll just camp in the yard!

The clerestory pine ceiling is finally in! Once the AC came on, the T&G Pine could acclimate. Now the scaffolding can come down and hardwood floor begin.
