Yep, we have brown house. Not sure how it got that way because it is not my favorite color, nor my wife’s. I guess we could blame the Architect? Either way, it is looking AMAZING, and I couldn’t be happier with the color choice. Actually, we love it so much it’s hard not to go brown on EVERYTHING! We DID order a Joybird sofa in Key Largo Ocean, so there’s a “splash” of color, get it? 😉
Week 30 was VERY productive with the beautiful siding install continuing, a TON of trim going up at the ceiling and beams, the HVAC guys getting to work on installing their systems, the Drywall guys doing repairs after the flood, and yours truly, the homeowners getting to work on staining the windows and doors, as well as painting the interior stops and windows sills. Let’s get to the pics…..
Siding is about 75% complete already. LOVE how the cobblestone and chestnut brown complete each other on the front
Custom dark brown color on the sills to match the siding
Ceiling trim is almost complete. It sucks that a trim piece has to be there, but it’s apparently VERY TOUGH to frame a hallway that long, perfectly straight
The Artisan Cobblestone Hardie Plank is almost complete on the south elevation. Look at those beautiful mitered corners!
Another shot of the south elevation. Can’t wait to see it finished!
Paint starting on the interior posts and sills
The Artisan Timberbark looks GREAT between the windows.
Another view of the west elevation with the Chestnut Brown and Timberbark variations
You don’t think HVAC units are not beautiful? Then you haven’t seen these Frigidaire units. Both are multi-stage IQ Drives and should make a BIG difference in our utility bill, even with all the glass
The contrast in the siding colors are much more pronounced depending on the time of day….
The southwest elevation with trellis staining complete
The Cobblestone siding is slowly creeping up the planter area
Hard to see but Liam’s big window got stained and first coat of poly. The Weathershield windows really turned out beautiful!
The private hallway skylights received plywood trim in the well and one 1″x4″ frames. After caulk and paint these are going to look spectacular!
Detail of trim work. We tried to find the lowest profile stuff we could. It is painted an ivory color to blend in with the ceiling. When daylight hits the trim it makes it stand out, but it still looks good, and blends well otherwise
More trim detail
The dark, brown posts sills and stops make a dramatic statement. We’re thinking that color on the glulam beams might be nice too!
These ceiling interior stops were a pain in the A$$. The rest of the posts and stops are dark brown and you just. don’t. want. to. stop. painting. Anne painted ALL of her “top stops” brown, I painted half of mine. Then my stepdad, who I told five times to not paint the top ones (because of our screw ups) painted his TOO! Either way, we got them corrected, and they look great, though I’m afraid to pull up the tape to see what we did to the T&G…
Another detail of the ivory stops. Although a pain, the Architects vision is that you don’t “see” the tops and the view to the outside appears continuous
The southwest corner of the house (guest room) get’s the full interior paint/stain treatment
Skylight trim LOOKING GOOD!
Family room stops and sills get painted/stained
Another view of the family room (North elevation) paint/stain detail
The 2″x2″ trim pieces arrive for the exterior doors
Detail of “origami” trim at dining room ceiling
Another view of the origami ceiling. Thin plywood will probably cover the back area
More skylight trim detail
And more skylight detail
Kitchen wall had to be extended to accommodate 30″ cabinets on both sides of the range
North trellis beams are FINALLY getting painted
Dehumidifier drying the basement rooms out after our little flood a couple of weeks ago…
These dehumidifiers are BEASTS!
New sheetrock to replace the stuff that started molding. While only a couple of inches of water soaked the floor it “wicked” up about 18 + inches
Ok, so I guess NO HVAC units are sexy. Form follows function I guess…
The master bedroom fixed window area get’s painted/stained
Another view of the master bedroom wall o’ glass sills and stops. Love the beautiful lines!
The amazing craftsmen of Supreme Contracting getting it DONE!
A slow, exacting job for sure….
The garage received the full trim treatment this week
Don’t you just love the hose bib sticking out of a feature wall? Yeah, me neither. The plumber couldn’t install it in the original plan location, but it is going to need to be moved from this spot
The hose bib again. They could have at LEAST centered it….
The northwest corner looks AWESOME!
Another detail of the excellent miter work
North wall looking good
Siding install continues
Gutters installed (time permitting)
Electricity gets connected and HVAC get’s turned on. HALLELUJAH!
Exterior fascia gets painted
Tile work continues
Trim work continues
Basement doors get installed
Kitchen gets installed!
