Ready for drywall pics + more...

Lots of pics today. First up are those of the inside of the house ready for drywall.

Living room:



Master bedroom:


And now, outside photos. They've been working on window trim, soffits and siding and we're thrilled with the results:

More soon - hopefully of the inside with drywall!!!!!

We have siding now too! Well, not ALL of it, but enough to give a real idea of what things will look like in a couple of weeks. AND, the drywall has been delivered, so our bedroom window has now been installed. Even better, the mystery of the missing doors has been solved - we should see them by the middle of next week.

Here's a pic of the one wall that has all the siding:

From the front:

Side view:

Close-up, with a bonus pic of our younger nephew:

Round the back:

When I have a chance, I'll take more inside pics - the insulation is all installed and vapour barriered. Drywall work should start very soon. Yay!!

We have insulation...

which is the step just before drywall. Yay!!!

Alas, our doors are still AWOL :( We hope to hear news of them tomorrow when we see our contractor. I'm sure he wants them to arrive as much as we do.

The drywall is scheduled for delivery late next week and our cabinets should be here in about three weeks. Yippee! Things are starting to really take shape.

Please note, we'll be away for a few days, so there won't likely be any more updates till next weekend. Below are the latest pics:

Insulation in the living room.

The kitchen, with the big window now installed.

My office.

Sean's workshop.

More strapping, soffit work and outdoor views.

That's all for now, folks :)

Soffit work...

There's electrical and plumbing work going on too, but it doesn't make for very interesting photos, so I'll post the ones that show the lovely job the guys are doing with the soffits:

It's really raining now, so I'm not sure what other work they'll get done today. Guess we'll see later on this afternoon :)

Windows, strapping and a deck, oh my...

Things are moving right along. Most of the windows were delivered last week (1 was damaged, the other somehow didn't make it on the truck). And our bedroom window (the one over the front door) won't be installed until after the drywall has been passed through it:

The deck is done as well!!! Yay - and it's gorgeous. We just LOVE it:

And yesterday they started installing the strapping, which goes under the siding:

And finally, here is Sean with the new picnic table, the one we picked up at the Scouts sale:

It just needs a good scrubbing and some stain.

More soon!
