The scaffolding’s gone, and more finishing has taken place. We now have a doorknob on the door! No more fiddling with a temporary plastic catch.

The color really looks different depending on the angle of the light.

Floors, Stairs, and Color

— SjG @ 5:00 pm

More floor work has been completed, and the stairs have had the hardwood added.

The first coats of exterior paint have been added. It’s a glorious, saturated purple, which contrasts the roses and flowers. Depending on the angle and the lighting, the color goes from nearly black to a royal purple.

It’s been a while since there’s been an update here.

The crew has been painting and tiling inside the unit. The upstairs bathroom is approaching completion.

Meanwhile, we’ve been doing further revisions of the front yard. I had to move some slate from under the concrete bench, which would have been impossible without judicious application of leverage and use of a jack. We added an archway over the bench for roses and morning glory to grow onto, and moved the mad bird feeding rig more than a squirrel’s leap from the new arch.
