More trim and shelves

The trim guys made some more progress.  Our master closet shelving looks complete.  The stucco crew also got started.

Not sure I like the chicken wire on black.  I may ask them to add stucco.

The dirt inspector gave us the all clear.

Drew's Bathroom

I did my own bit of cabinet installation today.  This is the vanity and sink in Drew's room.  We got the vanity, granite top, and under mount sink all for $200 from a guy on Craiglist.  It was your standard stained oak but I painted it brown.  The vanity we picked seems to be a bit larger than the HVAC guy expected as it covers the vent.  They are going to move that.

It was exciting to see a major change in the house today.  We have almost all of the cabinets installed, most doors are in place, and the trim work is almost complete.

Start of trim

The trim guys got started yesterday.  By the looks of the pile in the great room they have a lot of work to do.

Crown molding in the office.

They put shelf supports in all the closets.  This is the kitchen pantry.

Big pile of crown, baseboard, handrails, etc.

Textured ceiling

The progress this week is a bit disappointing, but its still progress.  The textured ceilings are complete throughout most of the house.  They also put drywall up in the bonus room.

I have no idea who dressed the young drywall hanger below.

All taped up

We went up the builders' office today to pick out trim and doors.  After that we swung by the house.  The outside still looks the same because all the rain has kept the stucco team away.  The drywall guys appear to be well into the finishing stage.

Our missing can is no longer missing.
