I’m happy to report that things have really been moving along since my last Progress Report. The upper level is fully drywalled, mudded and primed. Primed not once, but twice to smooth out any imperfections. The latter was not my call, I would have been happy with one coat of primer, but the lead finisher on the job is being a perfectionist. I’m not going to complain about someone who takes pride in his work and wants to deliver a flawless end product. The primed walls feel like silk. I’m not exaggerating… SILK! The picture above is of the master bedroom, seen at different stages of the process and in different light conditions, from very sunny to overcast.
The main level has also been drywalled and mudded. It’s going to get primed this week. As you can see in the picture above of the sunroom, the spaces is really taking shape.
In the picture above you get a to peek at the breakfast nook, as it once was and in its current state. I love that we are going to have a breakfast nook in the kitchen. It’s so perfect with kids.
Above is a view of the master bathroom, which I showed you before when it was just being framed. In the progress shot you can see what our new shower is starting to look like. The big difference in this room is not only change of size and scale, but also the way we changed the windows and added a skylight to bathe the shower in natural light. I LOVE our new skylight it makes a huge difference.
Last but not least is a view of the boys’ bathroom. It once was a sea of turquoise and salmon ceramic, and is slowly being transformed into a masculine retreat. As you can see, tiling is well underway. The guys installing the tile are being very meticulous and the results are SUPER. I love the way the tile looks. The pattern looks exactly the way I had envisioned it in my mind and in my moodboard, though my contractor freely admitted that when I first told him what I wanted to do with the tile, he didn’t think it would look good. Ye of little faith.
Anyway, I’m super excited and am going to start getting quotes from movers. Yippee. The end of the construction is in sight, but once we move in, a whole new set of challenges begins as I work to design each room. After all this effort, I’m not just going to throw some furniture into the space and call it a day.
