Bluff Neighborhood Construction Report 4-5-15

A lot of photos this week: be patient!

204 N. Bayview

The plan for the porch is now revealed. These tiles, with a brick border, will be practical and look lovely.

Steps have now been added to the back stoop.

308 N. Bayview

With the completion of the chimney, roofing has resumed around it.

Temporary steps facilitate access to the front of the house.

As can be seen from this photo, the porch floor is currently also quite temporary.

This week’s interior addition is drywall. The photos below show the living room with fireplace and the front room (the one with the cantilevered bay) that was pictured last week to illustrate the foam insulation.

The carport has been framed. The shed at left is currently storing salvaged lumber to be used in the renovation and will be demolished when construction is complete.

351 N. Summit

Grading has continued, but smooth red dirt isn’t very photogenic, so there’s no photo. When I walked on Friday because the gym was closed for Good Friday, there were surveyors at the site.

112 N. Summit

Today’s report is mostly about tile. The floors of the kitchen, laundry room, and all the bathrooms had been tiled and barricaded against entry, requiring me to alternate between front door and garage entrance to get access to the entire house. (I apologize for the fuzziness of some of the photos; I’m not sure whether it’s me or the camera.)

Here’s the kitchen.

The laundry room.

The master bath.

The Jack-and-Jill bath.

The hall bath.

The upstairs bath.

These cabinets have been added to the Jack-and-Jill bath, which is still awaiting installation of a mirror and light fixture.

Finally, a railing has been added to the loft (designated as “game room” on the plans), so I need no longer worry about getting too close to the edge and falling off!

The stairs have been completed and finished off with these handsome newel posts.

This is probably not what you think of when you hear the word “pantry,” but isn’t it wonderful?

111 Magnolia Avenue

The garage slab has finally been poured, and siding (clapboard and shingles) has been added to some more of the exterior. If there were any interior developments, I didn’t discern them.
