A view from the inside
Here it is...what you've all been waiting for, a tour of Lester's Flat from the inside, with Lester as your guide.
Most of the first floor has been painted, and the downstairs bath is partially finished. They are working on the slate tile floor and shower surround in the upstairs bath, and will probably start installing kitchen cabinets next week. The bamboo floors should be coming in from Krazy Tom's next week or shortly after. I don't think Jim ordered the cork floors yet, but he was going to try to save me some money on those. They are more expensive than the budget allows, and the whole second floor is cork, except for the bathroom.
There are still some other kinks to be worked out: woodstove installation; gas pipe to the cooktop in the kitchen; why there are so many roller marks in the expensive Benjamin Moore paint; final design on the porch brackets; whether I should take Susan the Architect's advice and have them paint the T&G ceiling on the back porch AND the dining room the same sky blue as the front porch; having the water tested and maybe getting a water softener to alleviate the yellowish water that is already staining the white toilet, after a week!; stopping the new Baxi boiler from banging loudly, but only when Bruce the Plumber isn't listening; and more I can't think of at the moment.
These last few weeks promise to be very exciting.
