Despite the holidays, there has been some pretty great stuff happening at the house.
Our wood showed up about a week ago, and it has started to go up on the house. What you see here will be repeated for the whole house. There is also a nice corner detail that is currently hidden by guides that are being used to make sure all the boards line up.
Built in shelves
Our cabinet guy busted out a bunch of work over the holidays. We didn’t expect anyone to come in around Christmas, but he faced the shelves on the 24th and then apparently came in on Saturday the 26th to finish up some work. The shelves that are covered on the living room side are open to the bathroom, except for the one on the lower right which will house our heater.
Above are the built-in shelves on the bathroom side. You can see how the bathroom shelves match up with the living room ones. By doing this we were able to put in lots of storage without sacrificing much floor area.
Our sidewalk replacement started to go in on Christmas eve as well, or really the prep work happened then. Pouring flat concrete requires dry weather so hopefully it can happen soon, but the forecast doesn’t look promising.
