Home Construction, Part X

September 30th, 2013: With most of the carpentry complete, more details on the interior and exterior of the house are starting to be completed. The slate for the entryway has been delivered:

Tile in the laundry room, ready to be grouted:


Painting has started simultaneously, so there are protective sheets up all over the house.

The primer coat of paint in the keeping room gives us an idea of what it will eventually look like. We have chosen a warm, neutral beige, to keep the space open.


October 3, 2013: The screens are in place on the back porch.

The exterior shutters have been painted:

The dining room has got its first coat of paint:


The laundry room cabinets are in place:


And the slate has been laid in the entryway, outside the front door:


October 4, 2013: Work is progressing at a rapid pace. The workers are often there late, despite the shorter October days. Safa got her one request fulfilled, a lovely deep orange in her bedroom. This is still just the first coat of paint. Even Zakir was surprised that he liked the color once it was on the walls.

Tile in the master shower has been laid, and just needs grout. We went with porcelain tiles, but a slate-like look.

The beautiful chocolate brown in the dining room. I don't think I'd dare choose a color this dark for anywhere else in the house!

The tile surrounding the bath tub upstairs, protected by plastic while the painters are still working:

We're in the home stretch now, since closing is only four weeks away!
