"Empty-Garage" Syndrome

My wife got an email from our PM this morning that had a picture of our fireplace in it.  Apparently it was finished last night.  Here it is.

Since I could see some trim and railing and spindles in the shot, I thought that today might be the day that the carpentry people might be in.  I went there right after I picked our daughter up from school, and I got there just as a crew of 7 guys were getting ready to leave.

I took a quick tour to see what was done, and boy was it a lot!!  All the doors and their framing in the basement, first and second floor.  All cabinets in the powder room, bathrooms, and the kitchen.  The counter tops in the kitchen, and the sink.  Window sills, all the baseboards, and the stair railing.  And our porch column, and step from the garage.

I wanted to take more pictures, but didn't want to keep them any longer so I only took pictures of the stair railing for now, but more will come soon.

The only things I saw left in the garage were our lighting fixtures(at least the boxes said lights), our mailbox was there, and a few other things I couldn't determine.

Our shake has yet to arrive, and our stone needs put on the front so those "big ticket" things still need done, but I can see how this is all starting to come together.


  1. Everything's looking great. Can't wait to see more pics!

  2. The fireplace looks great. We got the stone as well. Easily one of my favorite features of the house.

  3. I love that fireplace! We tried to get one like that but we could only get a white mantle with stone on the inside. Ugh!! I so want that rock up my wall. We will be adding it after the fact. ;)

  4. everything does look great! =) WOW! I love that fireplace! Nice!~
