Over the last two weeks, we have passed our insulation inspection and had drywall installed, taped, and mudded.
Here’s a photo tour of the progress.
The tour begins in our dining room, where we opened up a wall to hide plumbing and electrical. We bumped out this corner a bit to make room for the plumbing drain. The alternative would have been to hide it behind the built-in, but it is such useful storage, we felt this was a better solution.
A painting and masonry contractor is repairing all of the stucco on the old house, and they are coating the old stucco with Texcrete to change its color to match the new stucco on the addition. While we had wanted to re-stucco the old house, this was the fastest and most affordable way to make the house match.
There has been so much activity in the last week that it has been hard to keep up with everything!
The cabinets have arrived in boxes and are packed floor to ceiling in the addition. Installation of the cabinets will begin this week.
We have purchased all of the appliances. We were able to get several as “open box” and “floor model” specials to save a little money. The appliance installer will measure for the appliances next Friday, with installation of them scheduled for Friday, November 2. Hopefully everything goes smoothly with the cabinet installation.
