The new window has been installed, and the rotten sill replaced.
Work continues on the exterior as weather permits. We are very happy with the paint colors and stucco color. It’s a dramatic change that highlights the awesome old windows.
Work continues both inside and out.
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.
Today, the color coat for the stucco went on. It hasn’t dried yet, and my understanding is that it will darken by a couple of shades as it does.
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.
