The plumber and electrician were both back this week. The water heater(s) and softener have been installed and most of the connections to the sink and shower locations have been made. We now have lights in the basement. Exterior door hardware and deadbolts finally arrived and were installed.
Chris, Greg and Steve cleaned out the garage yesterday. Since the permanent furnace is now on, cutting and sanding takes place in the garage. There were piles of sawdust, scrap wood, cardboard and trash everywhere. It looks more like a garage again, although it's still filled with table saws of various descriptions, wood, scaffolds, etc.
Bathroom tile work is now 98% complete. We're waiting for the cabinets to be set, shower enclosures and countertops to go on which should be done the first week of February.
The vanities in the mudroom bath and the upstairs bath were brought in so some additional tile work could be completed. We chose quarter-sawn oak with a fruitwood finish to contrast with the darker look of the wood floors and trim.
The dust on the floors makes it difficult to take a good picture. The yoga room floor (above) has been cleaned and will be the storage location for the light fixtures when they are delivered tomorrow morning.
What a difference a week makes . . .
