Another week of work at the house, it is exciting to see the progress, we are still heading out a few times a week to see what is going on. The furnace guy worked fast - in two days he installed the furnace and duct work (I think he was heading out to Hawaii on day 3!). The main duct line runs through the crawl space and saves us a lot of head room on the lower level. The plumber continues to be in and out adding waste water pipes. We've been spending time at tile showrooms selecting tiles and counter samples for our architect to review. It's a slow process but we are narrowing it down and beginning to make progress. We settled on dark sapele wood for the kitchen cabinets and a natural sapele for the master bath. Our tile and counter tops will be neutral.
