Here are a few more progress pics, starting with the custom fabricated steel railing. LOVE THIS.
And a view of the upstairs landing. Seriously like a like big present soon to be unwrapped when all that masking comes down revealing fresh paint and finished walls, millwork and ceilings.
Here are a couple shots of the kitchen/dining room/living room in progress:
And below, a shot from the back where the deck stairs are going in. We worked with a new finish carpenter on this job, but he really can do anything, and he does it all well (for example, in addition to finish work, complicated hardware installation and drywall repair, he built the stairs/deck, and he also frames). One day he worked on the front porch for four straight hours during an insane torrential downpour (I think it helped that he was leaving for a trip to Mexico the next day). He was SOAKED but kept on working till he finished it. He is a keeper for sure. We decided at that point we may need to hand out awards to our subs who go above and beyond. Aaron definitely gets MVP on this one.
Modern Farmhouse has turned out even better than we imagined and we are so excited.
Thanks for your patience with the intermittent posting as we worked around the clock to get this project complete (oh, how much longer things take with a two-year old in the midst!). We promise the end result will not disappoint.
P.S. please ignore the hideous goldenrod color of the exterior primer in that first shot! (Remember when it used to look like this?)
