So close we can smell it…

We’re really in the final stretch now!  We have had the door from the street painted, and both the marble sill and overhead light installed (we’re still designing the bilco cover and the handrail)…

We’ve had the exposed brick sealed, and all of the closets painted, now that we’ve corrected the door issues we had (the closet systems have been designed but still need to be built/installed)…

The utility closets are finished and even have the heat detectors in place…

The marble sill to the bathroom is in place and the tiles in both areas have been finished off and grouted…

And in the bathroom we have the shower finished off including the fixtures (finally)…

And the sink, towel bar, medicine cabinet, light and toilet are installed and fully functional…

And in the kitchen area we have the backsplash, the microwave/fume hood, the new cabinets with hardware, the sink, the marble counter (we still need another hole drilled into the counter for the soap dispenser)…

Across from which the pantry and hall closet and main entry way are completed (though again the closet interiors need to be built)…

We’ve had the antique cast iron stove refinished…

Which will live next to the fireplace, now that the brownstone has been cleaned…

Let’s take a close look at the beautiful mosaic again, now that it, too, is grouted, shall we?

We’ve had the bar area correctly sized for the wine refrigerator and rolling bar/stool set to fit below, and the stained glass doors we designed ourselves are finished and waiting to be installed…

picture-067

The new back door and window are in, and the pipes have been moved so that they don’t obscure the view too much…

picture-068

Again, all of the exposed brick has been sealed…

picture-069

All the way into the new storage area underneath the internal staircase…

We’re almost there!
