Moving on around the house in a counterclockwise direction, we have the southside and the back of the garage, which was just completed this afternoon. The brick continues on the basement level, but not above the deck until we come to the master bathroom and the outside storage room under it. Those are also seen
Inside the house, meanwhile, our builder George Wright is working on wood trim around doors and windows. Here he's putting a piece of trim under the kitchen window that will be over the sink, which will be just about where George is standing. Cabinets will eventually cover the wall in front of him and to the left.
Today marks the end of 11 weeks since the beginning of framing on 4 May, and we have come a long way. All of the windows and most of the doors have been installed. The electrician has already installed most of the switches and receptacles, and will start on light fixtures, as soon as Manita and I pick them out. The brickwork will probably be finished up on Monday, and the masons will then start on the stonework.
The pictures below indicate how far we have come in just the last seven weeks. The one on the left shows what the living room looked like in my 4 June posting on the blog, with little more than framing, outside sheathing, and windows. Compare that with the one on the right, which shows the saw George is using to cut trim to put around the picture window, for example.
