Home Construction, Part IX

I'm catching back up on my home construction series. When I left off a few months ago, we were in the process of having the indoor carpentry completed, and the driveway poured outside.

September 24, 2013: Our section of the sidewalk has been poured.

September 25: Another view of the front of the house with the shutters up. they will eventually be painted to coordinate with the brick.

And inside the house, more trim has been added. This is the wainscoating in the dining room:

The tray ceiling in the master bedroom:


And the staircase looks lovely with the hardwood laid:


September 29th: The wrought iron railing is up on the lower part of the stairwell, as well as on the landing.

The fireplace surround has also been put in place.

 The built-in bookcase in the loft:


And a look at the back of the house with the deck and stairs completed:

At this stage in the construction we are still on target to close on October 31st. It seems like a lot of work still to be completed, but think about multiple subcontractors working together in different parts of the house. It can be done!
