That afternoon, when I went up to walk Davis through the house, Dave Pielaet, our good friend, neighbor, and all-around construction guy, was just washing up from installing floor tile in the master bathroom. He's about half done, and should finish that room today.
When he is done and the bedroom floor has been cleaned, I'll begin putting down the 3/8" pre-finished, engineered wood flooring.
Travis and his guys are still working on the siding, and this morning he was working on covering the porch framing. Laying down the balcony and porch decking will wait until the house is painted next week, which is also the target time for Lish Excavating to trench the water and power lines and the septic system.
Later this week, the electrician will be up installing the rest of the lighting, as well as the wall oven and cooktop.
We had one disappointment. There's an electrical outlet in the kitchen in the footprint of where a piece of backsplash will be installed. We wanted to have it removed, but it's required by code and is a key inspection point for occupancy. Oh, well. Great Floors will have to split and seam the backsplash around the outlet. It's all coming together.
