It’s been a while since I’ve posted because we’ve been a bit busy getting everything ready at the house for our inspection/appraisal. Because of the FHA 203k style loan, we need to have an appraisal inspection done before they release the rest of the funds for our renovation. They send someone here to check their list (maybe twice, Claus?) against what the bid said would be done. We not only have to pass the inspection for that work, but also can’t have any other construction going on at the house or the appraisal won’t be submitted. So we got busy. Here’s a breakdown of the things we’ve completed:
The kitchen is done. Except kick plates (which aren’t required).
All appliances are functional.
The trim is 99% complete. Still need a small piece for the back bedroom and two cabinet holes need baseboard.
Paint is done (minus the remaining trim)
All the flooring is either grouted or stained/poly’d. All done.
Master bedroom and bathroom are done and the mirror is up in the bathroom (that thing was huge! Custom cut 40×56 to fill the space between the sink and the ceiling). Ed still has to finish two of the build-ins though. One more for the bedroom and one for the bathroom.
All the doors are hung (that sucked!) including the pocket door for the master bathroom.
All the door hardware is in and working flawlessly.
Stairs are painted.
All the light fixtures are in.
The Florida room got a new wall covering.
…and a cat decided it wants to hang around! So I installed a cat flap in the storm door so he’s got access to the Florida room.
Needless to say we’ve been a bit busy. And got a lot of stuff done I feel like. Ill do a photo dump below, but I’ll also do room breakdowns later on.
Warning: there’s a LOT of photos.
