So the work has been continuing, but very slowly. The biggest news is the front door. Our contractor finished the trim around the outside of it to give a clean, finished look.
To contrast that polished look, we decided that we are going to keep the brickwork around the inside of the front door just the way it is. It has several different paints, some of it peeling, as well as plain brick that was repair work done by our brick mason, Keith. We feel that it gives it a hip, urban look.
The priming of the walls and ceiling continues, our contractor is doing some plumbing work downstairs and is just about ready to repair the support beams (replacing the wooden bottom with concrete), and Keith is getting ready to repoint the stone walls in the basement. Slow and steady wins the race, right?
