A Lot Of Progress!

I've been told that once the drywall goes in, things start happening very fast.
I'm finding that to be true.  
The drywall is 90% finished and it's starting to feel like a house now.
This is the family room right after the drywall went in.

The wet bar was installed yesterday.  Since this room will be grassclothed, we are just fire taping the walls.
There will be a beverage refrigerator and a dishwasher in the openings, and shelves on the wall flanking either side of the window.
The countertop will be gray soapstone.  

This is the master bedroom, looking into the closet.

Yesterday, the French doors were installed to the closet.  The glass is obscure, so you won't actually see the closet, but it will have a nice glow at night when the doors are closed and a light is on in there.
The closet itself will be delivered next week.

Here's the master bath from a week ago, looking into the shower.
The vanity will be straight ahead.

Here it is now, looking into the toilet area.  The walls are mudded and the floor is floated out, ready for the tile.

This is the tile for the guest bathrooms.
The tile for the master is the same, except the dots are black, not gray.

Across the hall from the master bedroom is the laundry room.
The walls are mudded and the cabinets are installed.  There will be a stacking washer and dryer on the other side of the cabinets.  The floors will be hardwood.

The living room just got a lot of patches.  
Some walls had to be torn out for insulation.

The same with the dining room.  
These rooms have since been mudded and look so nice.

As of today, almost all the walls are mudded.  The moulding is being installed around the windows and doors.  Oh, yea, I have doors now too!  
Baseboards are going in next week.  
The hardwood is being delivered tomorrow.
Outside, the brick is almost done.
And my garage doors are being installed on Friday!
A lot of progress!

Pin It!

It looks great, Delores! I am excited to see how you decorate your San Francisco home, as I loved your previous one!

So smart putting the bench in the shower - so glad we did it. Your tile is almost identical to mine, it's easy to keep clean and looks vintage.
I love the vaulted ceiling and arched doorways - gorgeous.
