Early March 2010

By early March 2010, the garage door was installed, but still had to be painted black as does the trim around it. You can also see the small hedges were planted in front of the garage. As seen in the pictures, cabinets in the lower level were installed and are ready for the marble counter top to be installed. In the third picture, tile in the lower level bathroom was re-installed, because we did not like the color of the tile first selected. We decided to use this moss green tile on the walls to match better with the finishes and flooring.

The  next picture shows the elevator cab finally installed and the walnut floor carried through. There is still some work left to do to the cab such as finishing the wall panels, which will occur during painting. Pictures of the living room show the railing that was installed around the main stairs and a makeshift rack used to store all the remaining baseboards and trim waiting to be installed in the home. The next two pictures are of the base cabinets in the kitchen, which are nearly ready for the thick slab of marble to be installed over them. The main space against the wall is for the 48 inch Wolf range and a pot filler to be installed above it. Against the back wall is the space for the fridge. On the other side of the kitchen island is the location of the built in desk and additional cabinets and shelving. In the last row of pictures, the first two pictures are of the powder room off the family room. The Helsinki Winter Mist limestone tile came out really nice, and almost looks like hardwood up close. More plants in the backyard have also been planted, helping to soften the lines of the grey slate. The stucco covering the top portion of the walls in the master deck are now a darker grey, matching nicely with the grey slate.
