Perola arrives....yeah!

You know the guys from Perola are here to stay when they show up with their little custom microwave box (you know... for lunches... and hopefully dinners!).  We've got them here until they have the vanities, laundry and kitchen installed.  Nice!

Dermot's installer, Mike, arrived to install the closets today.  I took a series of pictures to show the access provided to the built-ins with the Komandor doors...very nice!

Forming the planters

Thom has spent a good amount of time making sure the forms are perfect for the front planters.  We now wait for a good weather window to pour.

Glass and landscaping

Two late finish trades started today.... Rand installed the glass, while Thom was back to start the landscaping work in the front.

Nice enough to paint outside

Mick was back outside - this time pre-painting the 4" T&G pine boards for the undersides of the two porches.  He has also removed all of the paper and Dave has been fastidiously testing out the central vac (pssst Dave...more dust bunnies to come!)

Nawkaw Stone and brick staining

Nawkaw has come and gone and they've left an amazing piece of work on the exterior.  The brick and stone has been transformed to a consistent grey that really brings out the stonecutter colour on the garage doors and windows.  What a great way to update older masonry; the product covers great, and because it allows the masonry to breath, it doesn't deteriorate like paint - thus the 20 year warranty on their work.

Komandor Sliding Doors

Dave and Karen are using Komandor doors throughout instead of typical closet framing and interior doors.  I find this approach is a much more modern and functional way to approach closets; and the range of door treatments they have are great.
