What's happening at the Nordeast Nest? A lot of hard work, day and night. We have the final inspection for occupancy scheduled for October 29th. We're excited and exhausted at the same time. This has been a super fun project for us to design and build our family home together, and we are thrilled to be so close to moving into it! We have LED lights functioning in the living room now, and the air exchanger is now quietly and continuously bringing in fresh air. The exterior is painted and we await the installation of the metal porch roof. The quartz counter tops were installed in the kitchen and bathrooms. The tile in the master bath was completed, and the mudroom cabinets are installed now too. So beautiful! This weekend, Ryan installed the Brazilian Walnut flooring in the upstairs hallway, and it is gorgeous. We look forward to seeing the hardwood go in on the main floor this week. Hardwood is a slight understatement; Ryan showed us how a strong hammer hit to the Brazilian Walnut barely made an indentation. We figure it should hold up well in a house with 3 kids. Our new garage is currently the workshop for sanding, priming and painting all of the trim, and Tarek has been helping Ryan out with this big task. Next up... priming and painting all the cabinetry doors. Also, the appliances will be delivered on Wednesday!
