Painting is done

So here are some of the pictures I promised. We made progress on both the interior and exterior this week. I'll start with the exterior. The framers got further along on the siding and finishing up the front porch. So the front of the house looks like it's almost done 

The Tyvek house wrap you see will eventually be covered by stone. But that will be a while. The south side of the house looks good too:

If the good weather holds, they'll finish the exterior framing and siding tomorrow. I'll try to post some more pictures of the finished exterior over the weekend.

The painters finished the second coat of paint today (that coat only took them about two hours). Here's the view when you walk in the front door:

And a view front the other direction, taken from the family room. You can see the breakfast nook, kitchen, front door, staircase, and even some of the dining room from the family room:

Here's the family room:

That's it for tonight. More pictures over the weekend.
