Electricians and plumbers; oh my!
The house is a hubbub of activity right now. We met with the electrician yesterday and between his crew and the plumbing crew, the house was teeming with activity.
The plumbing is about complete.
(Things have changed a lot since our old house was built; apparently they don't use copper for plumbing anymore.)
The tubs have all arrived...
(This one is for the master bathroom.)
They are framing for the stairway to the basement.
(If it doesn't rain, they may pour the stairs this week.)
My kitchen island...
The bane of my existence...
It's within code, but our project manager thinks I should shorten it by 6 - 12 inches for an easier walkway. Looking at this photo, it doesn't stick out that far...
Because of the opening (upper left in above photo), there won't be a lot of wall cabinets, so I was hoping to maximize storage in the island.
Our project manager is supposed to be getting back with me for more lively discussion on the matter.
I can't wait.
(Can you see my tongue in my cheek?)
All the busyness will be coming to a halt soon though. There will be a big break while all the inspections take place. We've been told, it could be a week to ten days.
And, after that, insulation and dare I think...
Not sure when they will start on the outside.
I guess after the framing has all been inspected.
Not much going on here, my creativity has come to a standstill.
My muse has left the building and I don't know when it will return.
Wishing you a terrific week!
