Countertops are in. Here are the guys from Custom Countertops, Inc. doing the installation. We had a great experience with this vendor and can highly recommend them. They came out immediately for a consultation, then sent guys out to make the template for the countertops on the same day, and had them installed in exactly 1 week and 1 day. For WAY cheaper than the other quotes we got, including Lowe's and Home Depot. Definitely go with them if you're going to be spending money on countertops anytime soon.
Kitchen plumbing is being worked on right now.
Dan has been finishing electrical work all around the house, as well as installing the backsplash in the kitchen, and Brendan has been here this week helping paint and install trim.
In fact pretty much all Brendan and I have been doing for the past week or so is painting and painting and painting these million strips of wood with all their mind-numbing nooks and crannies.
We're done with all the door rosettes, plinth blocks, and trim, and are now working on baseboards. So this house should be all trimmed out soon if our sanity holds up.
