Stairway to completion
Just moments before we got our hands on Mike Holmes' phone number, it seemed our sub-contracting worries finally came to an end. I'll avoid the nitty gritty details since we're so relieved to have our loft and stairs finally complete. Overall, we're delighted to have a rather unique, and very solid stairway in our home. Here you can see them as they currently appear - before sanding, touch ups and varnishing begins.
Our peeled log railing is complete around the loft. We have a lot of sanding work to do on the rungs, but we're happy with the overall look.
Plastering continues once again now that Christmas is over. Here's Mom working on the kitchen so that the walls are ready for the cabinet maker to begin his work this week.
Here's Dad the Electrician finishing the wiring on the boiler that will keep our radiant in-floor [thermal] heat running.
I estimate we're looking at four more months' of work now (and a lifetime of upkeep like any home). Lots of finish work to do and mucho, mucho plaster work ahead.
