We are pretty much done. Some moving is going on tomorrow. Here are some pictures from a couple of weeks ago. To see more, you might just have to come visit!! I'll post some more detail photos soon.

More progress...

Sorry it's been awhile since I posted last. I haven't been up there in awhile & Chip's not so good at the pictures. I will have tons of pics on Friday or Saturday! The painter has been diligently working on painting (there are many different colors). The plumber and electrician are starting this week with top-out (fixtures). Tile is complete with the exception of the kitchen countertops, which will be done this weekend. More barnwood has been hung. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but the pictures will show all!!!

Trim & Cabinets

The trim is complete. The bead board is in the bathrooms and "closets." The rock wainscot is complete. Yesterday, Chip and I finished putting in the kitchen cabinets and making a half bath vanity. The painter has been working this week, and we should have color on the walls tomorrow.

Cedar Accents

Master carpenter Chip put up some cedar in the upstairs hallway. There will be cedar at certain places around the house. We decided not to paint it. Doesn't it look great?

I will have more pictures tomorrow of trim, kitchen cabinets and more. Stay tuned.

That man is tall!

This week the sheetrockers finished up. Jack enjoyed watching this tall man.

A shot of the "left" side with the stairs leading up to the loft. Below right is the kitchen. Scaffolding was used for the 20' foot living room!
The rock is also being worked on right now.

Insulation & Sheetrock

Plumbing was finished up at the end of last week. Insulation was put in on Tuesday and the sheet rockers started on Wednesday. They will take a few days. The rock is also being installed on the exterior of the barn this week and the beginning of next week. Next in line is trim, which is scheduled for possibly Thursday or Friday.

More pictures to come!

Here are the stairs (much needed for a second story). There are identical stairs on the other side as well.

The plumbers are finishing up this week.

Electrical is in place. All light fixtures, plugs, switches, phone outlets and cable outlets are in their correct spots.

The air conditioning guys finished yesterday. The "columns" we built worked perfectly for the duct and all air will be conditioned fantastically (which is a must for Dad).
