Just a few new photos this week, plus a visit to a site I haven’t written about for a while.
252 N. Bayview Street
Sure enough, the driveway has been poured (it was actually done last Monday), and sod has replaced the big pile of dirt.
The upstairs porch has been screened, and painting of the wood trim has begun.
Sometime when I wasn’t paying attention, the front porch was paved with brick—not showing to best advantage in this shot after the cleaners left.
The house was securely locked up, so I couldn’t go in, but I could see that 2″ wooden Venetian blinds had been hung in all the downstairs bedrooms and also the upstairs extra room (the one identified on the plans as an “attic”).
Through the south side (kitchen) door and the window over the sink in the laundry room, I could see that a washer and dryer have been put in place. They appear to be an older-model Whirlpool Duet.
Since all exterior lighting is already in place, I can only assume that this copper lantern on the kitchen counter will hang somewhere inside, perhaps over the kitchen island.
One of the old AC compressors has been removed, but the other remains in place.
352 N. Summit Street
This week the walls throughout the house were painted a warm beige/tan, shown here (with the previously painted grey-blue ceiling) in the master bedroom.
The mantel awaits installation in the great room.
And this decorative panel between dining room and kitchen turns out to be way cooler than was apparent last week since it is now revealed to be glass.
351 N. Summit Street
The flooring of the screened porch has been completed.
Several vehicles were present, including the owner’s, and the house was wide open, with doors standing ajar and windows flung wide, but the downstairs was deserted (whatever was going on was evidently taking place upstairs), so I didn’t intrude, but I did snap this shot from the screened porch looking into the kitchen. Presumably this hood will be above a kitchen island.
120 Kiefer Avenue
The appearance of a dumpster suggests new activity here, and in fact, peeking around and through blinds, I got the impression that work is being done inside the house.
Meanwhile, the guest house has acquired a flower box, a front porch light, and lighting in the planters around the base, and plants stand ready to be placed.
Inside the guest house, the furnishings now include a bicycle.
