I've been running around in circles, and the progress on the remodel/basement finish has been phenomenal. I won't bore you with the hundreds of photos we've taken of the framing, insulation, wiring and drywall work. Instead, here's where we are as of 5pm today, April 2.
Primer is on the wall, and the cabinets on affixed and waiting to be painted (studio) and stained (kitchen/bar). Even though the primer looks blue here, it is really a neutral green that goes from gray to green to blue shades, depending on the light. It is called Quietude by Sherwin Williams, and I am using 3 shades of it to distinguish one room from another. I encourage you to double click on the photos to see them larger.
We are leaving for a hotel with the kitties and Mayo the Wonder Dog in tow for a week. The enamel and lacquer work is next, and it's quite toxic. Since we don't want to wear respirators while they are working (and they don't make them for kitties of dogs), we are taking a short vacation to the west side of town.
See you when we get back, and I'll be sure to post the pictures of the almost finished work. I am SO excited!
