But what of the construction that had happened in my absence??? Even with a short week, a lot of work was accomplished. Both egress windows were dug and window wells installed. The cut concrete has been removed and the openings framed. Window installation awaits arrival of the windows (next week) so the openings are temporarily boarded up, which makes the basement a lot darker at the moment. The bathroom has been completely framed and some rough plumbing has been started. The new furnace just looks so cute! The wall dividing the great room and the winery has also been partially framed. The mechanical closet and bedroom closet still need to be framed, but that will be done after the windows are installed.
Inside the winery room, lots more framing has been done with every wall finished except for the storage room. To give you an idea of what the space will look like, I took photos from each of the corners. The first is looking from where the sink area towards the basement door.
This shot looks from the office corner towards what will be the bottle storage room.
This shot looks from the outside wall towards the sink area where some rough plumbing lines have been run.
Still lots of work to do, but the walls are beginning to take shape! Electrical and plumbing will be the primary focus during Week 3.
