This week was Spring Break for Cameron and I was out of town for a work event so I wasn’t at the house too much. The painting continues to be the main star of the show for the house progress. They finished painting the trimwork for the basement and have moved on to painting the trim upstairs. My absolute favorite part of the house that was painted this week is the fireplace – hands down. It turned out fantastic and seeing it all in white really make such a difference. We’re both thrilled!
The other major thing to see progress is the bar countertop downstairs. We selected fantasy brown quartzite with a leathered finish. It has a great texture and just the right mix of gray and brown to tie into the java cabinets. For the backwall of the bar, we had a custom bar drain made – at 5’6″ long, it’s really a focal point. We won’t have the taps installed right away, but since the countertop needed a cut-out for the drain, we had to have that created sooner rather than later. The drain will connect into the sink drain, so it’ll be super easy to clean. And the sink was installed as well. It’s coming together – Joel couldn’t be happier!
