The Karina - update

Karina 09'1111 - 01It's always a bit depressing this time of year when daylight is gone by 4:30pm. No more long days. Yesterday we had a surprise visit from the sun and I was so excited to see the guys back outside working on the front porch! Trim-out of the house is 95% done, with just the fireplace bookcase to finish. The floor guys return today to put the final 2 coats on and the painters are due to start next Monday. We can see the light at the end!Karina 09'1111 - 03We pre-stained the cedar decking to jump-start it's greying. Here you can see Neil put a strip of sticky flashing over the porch beams to increase their longevity.Karina 09'1111 - 15Karina 09'1111 - 09Neil ripping down a piece of decking lengthwise as Alec helps guide it.Karina 09'1111 - 13Peter, the tile guy, (Petra Matters) was there finishing up the caulking and grouting in the main bathroom. It looks amazing. I'm am so pleased at how it all turned out. The tile, the layout of the tiles, the grout choices, the change in tiles, the shelf in the shower. More detail shots will come later, but here is Peter working.
