Technology Lake House Update

On our last update I stated that 1800 square feet of deck tile was being installed and our tile installer gave an estimate of two weeks and he is is only seven weeks short on his estimate. About 500 feet of tile remains to be install on the lower floor.

Carpet for the Guest Suite, hall bedroom and stairs has been picked out and should be installed in the next 30 days.

1,500 square feet of wood flooring is proceeding much better than the tile. Three days into the job and about 500 s.f. remain. This should be finished by tomorrow.

All the cabinet hardware has been installed and the pictures are available at www.ronphotos.notlong.com

All but one of the Schlage lever handles have been installed. We are also using 13 of the Schlage "Link" combination locks that can be controlled from any computer or cell phone Worldwide.

Stay tuned.

June 14, 2010 Update

It has been two years since this project started and as we are getting to the finish line over 1800 s.f. of deck tile is being installed, stone work is being finished on the inside fireplace and outside of the living room, entry way and the chimney. The office upper cabinets have all been installed.

Yet to be installed in the main house is three rooms and the staircase with carpet, hardwood flooring in the upstairs rooms, lower office cabinets, television mounts,

The six miles of audio/video cable is being terminated and that is a long process. You can see pictures of some of the terminations at www.ronphotos.notlong.com plus thousands of other construction pictures.

Today we start on the construction of the railings on the inside staircase and that should be completed by June 25. Also the parts for the outside apartment staircase should be ordered today.

The three bedroom apartment has only a few items to be installed such as the Schlage Link Lever Locks, door stops, fans, television mounts and a few minor items.

The septic system gets its final inspection today and the water system has been completed featuring a General Electric Home Spring System.

Stucco is Finished

We finally had a week full of sunshine so the stucco color coat was applied to the balance of the house except where the ledge stone is going to be applied on the sides and the top of the living room.
