Progress report, v.3

I’m happy to report that things are humming along.

It's thrilling to see so many permits on the front door. Plumbing, electrical, HVAC, oh my.

We now have stainless steel in our kitchen.

Framing in the basement is pretty much done. On the left, the electrical room, on the right, our office.

The plumber insulated a pipe running through the wine room.

We re-sealed the brick where the old duct work was.

Today, Michael and I primed the ceiling. Tomorrow, we paint.

I did the trimming while Michael did the rest. Sometimes, it's good to be short.

Gonna build me a wine room

Framing in the basement has begun!

Earlier this week we passed our plumbing rough in inspection with the DOB.  A big thank you to my partners who are making all of this happen while I’m “working” overseas.

Arrivederci Venezia!
