A lot going on this week—prepare to scroll!
204 N. Bayview
With warmer weather and a couple of rainy days, volunteer landscaping has sprung up all over the site, as here by the southwest corner.
The front porch has been tiled (the uncovered portion is protected with a plastic sheet).
308 N. Bayview
Shingling of the roof and exterior siding and trim are now complete.
A view of the completed chimney.
Permanent porch steps have been built.
First steps in an attempt to replicate the historical color of the house?
Work on the carport continues apace.
351 N. Summit
Oh, okay, a shot of the broad expanse of red dirt, ready for building.
112 N. Summit
A great deal to report this week, starting with changes outside. It appears that work preliminary to grading for the driveway is being done. Presumably the corrugated piping has something to do with drainage.
A small deck has been built outside the side door (which opens into the “keeping room”).
Inside, we find beautiful countertops (and a double sink) in the kitchen.
This space is just waiting for a slide-in gas range.
The master bath tub is now also settled on a base of what—cultured marble, granite, Corian? I confess my ignorance.
Across from the tub, the new counter with its twin sinks.
The completed shower stall.
Hardware (towel rods, TP holders) has been added to all the bathrooms.
In the loft (“game room”) and “bonus room” synthetic wood flooring has been laid.
Tiling around the hearth is in progress. The cable jack between the two sconces suggests that a clock will not be the mantel’s central feature.
Similarly, this set-top box in Bedroom 4 (previously surmised to be a library/study) suggests that this may be a den/media room.
There’s another one in the master bedroom.
In the “keeping room,” the stair bannisters have been added.
The contents of the keeping room—Kohler toilets, Moen and Delta sink and shower fixtures, and a Mustee 17F Utilatub laundry tub—suggest what we’ll see accomplished next week.
111 Magnolia Avenue
Interior work seems to be confined to plumbing, wiring, and HVAC. Outside, clapboards and shingles have been applied to additional portions.
