This is the first door hung in the house. I was so excited to see it.
It was hung by the trim masters.
From the drawing on the wall, I thought they were going to make a replica of Stonehenge, but they came through for me.
Just what I wanted.
As they worked their way through the basement with baseboard and door casings, the house started to really look like a house.
The patchy walls and two toned trim does look a little funky right now, but once it’s all painted, it’s going to be great!
Meanwhile, the masons have been busy, too.
These guys started on opposite ends of the curved wall and worked toward each other until they met in the middle with their wall cap.
Santa, aka Louie, had to eyeball this one, because you can’t pull a line on a curved wall.
They also got a start on the columns. They needed a drill to drill into the concrete wall to set their wall ties, so they stopped at this point. I was glad they stopped. I wasn’t sure that the column was going to look right. I had my favorite rock star come look and she assured me that this plan would give the column enough visual weight to balance the house.
Then the masons had the new guy with the mortar bag fixing up those gap toothed arches.
It looked like tedious work, but he did a great job!
What a great framework for the gardens! I can’t wait to get planting!
