Exterior Painted

Yesterday Brad Martin the painter (of Brad Martin Painting, naturally) painted the house! And just in time too, because the rain clouds rolled in last night and now it's pouring down rain like it doesn't plan on stopping until March. The trim isn't done yet, but that's ok. It can be done a little at a time on dry days, I guess. So, without further ado: the pictures!

Starting with the gabled east side...
The Front, with masking still in place:
and the West side. The small wall there that's still tar paper is going to be shingled, eventually. It's also going to have the cat door in it.
Inside, the bar was built and faced with wood veneer. With the pendant lights turned off, you can see the yellow/beige color of the shades that I mentioned the other day because they coordinate so nicely with the paint color. Not to mention the color of the wood itself.
Also in the last couple of days, the windowseat benches in the bedrooms were capped with boards which will bear the weight of sitting persons, and the countertop in the laundry room was connected to the workbench. The drain for the clawfoot tub was installed at the correct position, and the spacing box and it's pea gravel was replaced with concrete. I hope to see the marmoleum down on that floor soon, and following that the tub itself. :)

Love the color!

Not far to go now, when do you think it will be all done?

The actual building part of your house seems to have zipped by with relatively few problems, hopefully ours will go as easy.

We're hoping to be in by Christmas or New Years.

Yes, we've been very very lucky. I think we hired the right contractor, that's the biggest thing.

I really love the color of your house. Unfortunately, everything here has to be light colored so you don't bake in the summer sun. Otherwise, I would love to paint it that color. We are in Sacramento, CA. We are a block away from the American river. E-mail me and I'll give you our address. Also, I want your address so I can google satellite view of your place!
