So many have asked for photos of the house and I've resisted because there still isn't much to share in the way of progress. So since you asked for it, here are they are:
In the atrium, the original spiral staircase was removed. It was too narrow and illegal, so a new one is being made. In the meantime, a ladder is the only access to the roof. I'm definitely not going to climb up!
This is our master bathroom.
The plumbers are installing the valves in our walk in shower.
Just last week, the electricians added the cans and all electrical in the house.
This is our master bedroom, looking in to the walk in closet.
Recently, the opening was made smaller and a pair of French doors will go there with obscure glass.
I'm very excited about the closet and am working with Marty, the cabinet maker to design it.
The stairway, looking down towards the family room.
The family room looking towards the wet bar area.
Marty, the cabinet maker is making cabinets that will be black with just a little distressing.
I plan to top it with limestone. The whole room will be wallpapered in grasscloth!
On the outside, the whole house is getting a coat of new stucco that will be smooth and have sharper edges. An updated look.
Sheetrock should be going in next week or the week after. That will be a game changer!
In the meantime, I'm gathering light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, paint samples, window covering samples and furniture ideas. There's so much to do that I've taken a little blog break, but promise to resume again!
Mr. A, the Les Méchantes girls and I also took a break this week and headed north to Asti.
Les Méchantes is doing a pop-up at Healdsburg's H2 Hotel on May 16th and 17th, so if you're in the wine country, stop by and say hi!
