House Addition - Interior

Sunday, January 25, 2004


Finally, we've got some new pictures for the Web! The Hayes Construction crew has not been at "the site" while we've been putting a vinyl floor in the basement and otherwise organizing stuff. They'll start back up on the final "to do" list thsi week, and we hope it won't be long 'til completion.

Kitchen. Maple cabinets with pulls we found, cork floor, green Silestone counter and "honed" (matte finish) granite counter for a higher pass-through, and a slate backsplash.







Kitchen & Dining room. (The sofa is in the dining room now; dining room table will replace it.)

Basement at foot of the new oak stairs. (We wanted something more contemporary for the stairs and railing, but we stuck with this for cost reasons.) New VCT (vinyl) flooring. The area shown is open to the upstairs, but is walled off from the rest of the basement.

Finally, I've taken some pictures! Bamboo floors (we're using the "horizontal grain" varieity) were finished today, but are covered up to protect them.

No substantial changes to the exterior, but many changes inside! Kitchen has been torn out; an old exterior wall (the one that was between the existing house and the addidtion) and one interior wall were taken out. A few more walls yet to go. The Hayes crew has been very careful: they laid masonite over the floors that need protection, put up plasitc sheets to separate the--now much reduced--living space from the destruction zone, and did lots of vacuuming and cleaning up following their "demo" work.
