Now that drywall, plaster, and priming are complete, the crew is busy installing cabinets, tile, trim, and doors. There’s something going on in every part of the house!
Our cabinet manufacturer, Herrick & White, delivered the upper mudroom and pantry cabinets recently and they turned out beautifully. We squeezed a shoe storage compartment into the dead space under the mudroom landing, since removing shoes near the entrance is an effective way to help minimize contaminants in the house. Upstairs from the entrance are the main mudroom cabinets, and the main pantry cabinets are also in place. The lower mudroom cabinets are in process.
Meanwhile, the family room is full of trim boards and the shiplap siding for the foyer and staircase walls. The carpenters are installing window trim and casings, and most of the doors have been hung. In keeping with the healthy aspects of the home, we specified a special no-added formaldehyde door material from our supplier Trustile so that the doors would satisfy our rigorous LEED and Indoor airPLUS indoor air quality requirements.
The tile masons have made at least one pass through every bathroom, installing floor tiles and shower walls. There’s plenty of work to keep everybody busy for quite some time.
