Mid March 2010

A few weeks after our last post, changes included the installation of the Seagrass marble counter tops on the kitchenette/bar in the lower level. All the tiling in the lower level bath is done, the trim and window casings are also installed. All the doors in the house are now hung. These doors are all solid core wood and nearly 1′ 3/4″ thick.

In the kitchen, the |Walker Zanger| Silver Dusk marble slabs have been installed and look great. The faucet in the kitchen island sink is by |Dornbracht| as well as in the prep sink. The wooden upper cabinets in the kitchen are nearly ready to paint. In the powder bath the 12 inch diameter sink has been installed. In the master bathroom, most of the marble tile work is completed, along with the cultured marble wainscoting. The tub and Dornbracht tub filler are installed along with some of the controls for the steam shower. The picture of the backyard shows a crew from the |San Francisco Chronicle| interviewing our landscaper on site. The article should be published shortly.
