I was really hoping everything would be finished by the end of June, but I’m beginning to the doubt that’s possible. Our kitchen is nearly done, and we love it. The glass cabinet doors finally arrived, so I could finish unpacking everything. I still haven’t found one box of kitchen stuff, but I’m sure it will turn up. We still need the under-counter lighting installed, the icemaker hooked up and the stove and dishwasher anchored into place. Then it’s fnished.
The rest of the first floor just needs some minor painting and some electrical work finished. But unpacking is the main task left here. Unfortunately, the painter showed up and started varnishing both sets of stairs. He’s doing alternate steps, so we can get up and down, but there’s no chance of carrying things from one floor to the next, so I’m severely limited in how much I can do for the next two days.
The plumber was supposed to come today to installed the fixtures in the downstairs bath. He didn’t. Don’t know why.
No work has begun on soffits, gutters and downspouts.
We’ve bought lots of shelving from Ikea, so the books are starting to be unpacked. Soon the DVDs and CDs will also go up.
I’m determined the living room furniture will be in place by Friday.
I think I’ll post this now, and follow up with pictures later.
