It's Coming to Life

Heeeey! It's been too long. So much has happened since my last post on the beams and exterior paint. So let's get you caught up...

Once the roof was installed, we insulated, and soon after, drywall began. The drywall, tape and float took about 3 weeks. We chose to do a smooth finish vs texture which takes more time because imperfections are much more noticeable. Overall, I'm happy with the crew we chose. Let the drywall tour begin!

I'm still drooling over the beams.


Dining and living with views of the office and first floor bathroom.

The double sided fireplace separates the living room from the screened-in-porch.

First floor bath - I'm putting a floating concrete sink that weights over 200 pounds in here, so before the drywall can be installed behind the sink, we need to attach steel support brackets to the studs which is why you see drywall missing below.

Guest wing - there are two guest bedrooms off this hallway with a shared bathroom in between.

For easy access to clean linens and a dirty laundry drop off point from the guest hall, there will be a laundry shoot and cabinet above to make everyone's life a lot easier. This is illustrated below.

The interior paint, tile installation, and trim work are all on the docket for next week! Let the pretty begin!
