Trim, Interior Painting and Flooring done - First house
It's been a busy couple of weeks at 916 Oakwood Avenue! The interior is coming along nicely. The environmentally-friendly bamboo flooring is all in now (except for the shoe-mould), the trim is mostly done, and the interior is painted.
View from the loft towards the front door. These vaulted ceilings really make the place look big.
This is the upstairs bedroom looking towards the balcony and the bathroom. The creamy yellow color is nice and bright, but very calming.
The ceramic tile in the bathtub/shower in the upstairs bathroom came out great!
The shower in the downstairs bath looks nice too! All ready for the glass enclosure.
This upcoming week cabinets and light fixtures go in, and then I try my hand at making decorative concrete counters. I watched my friend Will Jeffers make them a couple of days ago and now I'm looking forward to doing it myself.
I'm hoping to be done the first house by the end of October.
914 Oakwood is moving along too! The trim is getting done this week, along with the exterior painting (Restful Green with a Dewberry - purple door). I can't take credit for that - the buyer's mom did it! I love it!
We started 908 Oakwood Friday - the roof is now off. Next is redoing the foundation under the whole house to support the second floor. Thanks to the truss design, we'll be able to get a couple extra rooms in the attic - it's going to be a really cool house - pictures coming soon!
