The exterior is completed, except for just this little fireplace bump out that needs roofing. Maybe they are finishing that today. Pleased with our CBC brick in Everwood.
Got the big triangles installed and bricked; they fit perfectly. Have been very pleased with the Maritech windows we got, in color Clay. We have all kinds: fixed, single hungs, awnings, casements, and these custom triangles.
The walls have been sheetrocked, taped and bedded, the wall texturing done in a “light” orange peel, the garage doors will be arriving, and the interior doors are waiting installation.
Our custom doors from DeFord’s are a Craftsman 3 panel. I will be ordering the door knob hardware in black, which is hard to find on the shelf anywhere, but I found the Schlage’s Addison Collection with Georgian knob in black that will look very nice on the doors.
Tomorrow we have to make final decisions on all the flooring. Each space must blend into the next, for me anyway, and we have different areas that will be tiled or carpeted. Not much carpet; just the living room and up the stairs and the office, and then 3 bedrooms. The rest will be tiled that need to complement and blend with each other.
Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins.
