Some shots of the upstairs master area. This area is almost finished except for some small finishing and touch-up details and the floor. I am waiting to finish the floor later so I can store materials here for now.
Another upstairs master shot.
Collin along with a sheetrock lift helped me install sheetrock on ceiling in the downstairs living and kitchen area. The lift made all the difference. I couldn't imagine trying to do that by hand.
The sheetrock is finished in the downstairs living/kitchen area. Now I have to add my corner bead, tape & bed, and texture & paint.
Finished mudding the joints in the stair area. It is ready to be textured.
The texture and paint is finished in the kitchen/living area and I am now building the tables to build the molds to make the concrete counter tops. The upstairs flooring and downstairs flooring is also on its way. The upstairs will be natural ash and the downstairs bolivian rosewood. We are getting closer and closer.
The ash wood came in for the upstairs master area. About 2000 pounds worth! I've been finishing up the upstairs bathroom. Should be complete in a couple of days. I'll be installing the upstairs floors soon and working on the kitchen countertops.
Belle was priming the trees while I was unloading the ash.
All of the countertop molds are built as well as the reinforcement and decorative inlays except the island/bar which will be completed after the floors are finished. As you can tell the blue foam still has to be removed and the rebar must be tied off to the side. I put together a make shift fence for my skill saw to create perfectly straight cuts for the mold assembly. When it's all said and done there will be a total of 5 different pieces of countertop.
This is the kitchen sink portion. The styrofoam, blue rubber mold, and round pvc pipe create a void for the undermount sink, a build in slope drain with stainless trivets, and a knockout for the faucet.
In various parts of the countertops will be decorative inlays. Here you are looking at 3 geodes with a stainless steel rode that meets a 400 million year old amonite at the other end. The cut out portion of this mold is where the stove will be placed with a 12 inch cantilevered bar on the opposite side and on the other side of the stove there are 3 inlayed stainless trivets for hot pans.
I've been installing the upstairs flooring while waiting on some parts for the kitchen countertops.
Upstairs floor is finished and I still need to install the baseboard, wire some plugs/switches, install the ceiling fans and install the closet cabinetry and I believe we can call this area finished.
The upstairs bathroom is finished besides a few details.
