Bluff Neighborhood Construction Report 6-18-17

I thought I had written the last of these reports, but this weekend 252 N. Bayview was unlocked, so I have a few more photos to share.

352 N. Summit Street

Framing has been added for a screened portion of the front porch. The painter’s tape and signs are to bar entrance before Monday, June 12, after a second round of floor finishing.

Inside, kitchen appliances have been installed, though plumbing in the sink is still not complete, and the Badger garbage disposal is still out on the counter. Appliances that have been installed include the GE Café™ Series 36″ Built-In Gas Cooktop with GE Universal 36″ Telescopic Downdraft System, the GE Café™ Series 30″ Built-In Single Convection Wall Oven, the GE Café™ Series ENERGY STAR® 27.8 Cu. Ft. French-Door Refrigerator with Hot Water Dispenser, and the GE Café™ Series Stainless Interior Built-In Dishwasher with Hidden Controls (or similar).

An “aerial” view from the stairs.

This shot shows all the connections required for the cooktop and oven.

I had wondered about the undercounter placement of a microwave oven. It turns out that the Monogram oven is a top-loading drawer-style model.

In the master bedroom, the glass doors and partitions to be installed in the shower stall.

In the upstairs hall bathroom, shower doors have already been installed.

In the en suite bathroom, the Ara® Single Handle Vessel Lavatory Faucet with Channel Spout has now been installed.

A tiled backsplash has been added in the “break room” at the top of the stairs.

Downstairs, in the den, there are new built-ins.

In the foyer, shades have been added to the Lorraine Architectural Railing Sconces from Restoration Hardware, and a chandelier has been hung.

120 Kiefer Avenue

This extended fence and garish gate were added last week.

The house is in the process of being (re)painted white.

The blue paint on the window frame suggests that perhaps the blue-and-white color scheme is being contemplated for the house as well.

Closed blinds at all the windows make it difficult to tell what (if anything) is being done inside.

Elsewhere Around the Neighborhood

The large red-brick house at 120 N. Summit (corner of Oak Avenue), seen here in an April 2011 Google Street View, is being painted.

And our neighbors at 60 N. Summit seem to have installed “burglar bars” around their porch. Not sure whether this is to keep pets/children in or malefactors out, but the new fencing certainly presents an odd appearance.
