Had a houseful of workers today. The drywall and first taping got done. The ceiling is closed up and looks lovely. They fixed the squeaks in the floor, closed up the old ceiling hole from the swamp cooler -- I really felt sorry for the guy that had to climb up into the attic. Tomorrow, more taping, then painting, then more electrical, and then tile on Friday.
I need to try to have lighting fixtures before then. I don't know if I can do it. But I found a local specialty lighting store that has several options that really appeal to me and are in my price range. I hadn't considered them before as I just assumed their prices were too high for me. But they do have lines that compare pricewise to Home Depot and Lowe's where I am finding only compromises to my preferences. However, the items I found were online and they may not have them in stock. Crossing my fingers.
The cabinets are on schedule for delivery next week and the cabinetmaker says he's ready.
My contractor is such a cool guy. He offered to run a phone line for me into my new office and several other little things I need done, no charge. That's just how he was with my exterior remodel a couple of years ago. Taking care of a number of little things while they were here in addition to the big project. Who ever heard of such a thing?
Well here's today's progress shot.
