On the other side of App Gap, construction of Colin’s house proceeds at a glacial pace. “Glacial” is an appropriate adjective, because the last few weeks of subzero temperatures and nonstop snow suggest the onset of a new ice age.
We’re far from finishing everything, but we did hook up the kitchen sink. It’s a deep farmhouse-style sink in a gleaming white. The massive capacity means dishes can really pile up before somebody takes care of them in one fell swoop, a perfect match for this family’s habits. (Admit it, you let your dishes pile up too!)
Shower stalls have come a long way in the basement and master bathrooms, with rot-resistant wallboard ready to be tiled. Also in the ceramic department, the “kids’ bathroom” gained a swath of underlayment for the floor tiles. In the upstairs hallway, we installed several more wall sconces, adding class to the stairwell and landing.
And then there are the interior doors. Only a couple have been installed so far, but they look amazing. The family room, previously a workspace to cut siding, now serves as a warehouse to store all the remaining doors as they await their turn.
