(Almost) Final Photos!

2010 June 3

The house is rapidly approaching completion. Well, “rapidly” is overstating the case, at least emotionally speaking. As we’ve neared what should be completion, things keep coming up that push the actual finish date further out. It seems like every subcontractor still has one small thing left to do – caulking the floor, putting on a last grate, installing the thermostat – as well as writing us a bill that’s larger than what we expected from the estimate. Oh, except that the bill-writing part seems to go very quickly.

But momentary frustrations aside the house is looking *beautiful*! Check out these photos (kitchen photos to follow as soon as the final appliance install and countertop unveiling takes place):

The mechanical room is a tad Rube Goldberg – But oh so worth it. If you have 5 hours I'd be glad to bore you about every detail...

    Otto this looks fabulous! I can’t wait to come to the housewarming (we’ll leave the puppy at home, I promise!). Congratulations!

    Wow, wow, wow. Congratulations! It is simply gorgeous and such a perfect fit for a hip new family. I am in love with every last detail – especially the mechanical room. :) After months and months of looking at old, neglected, antiquated and exceedingly overpriced houses in the Boston area, I yearn for shiny, new and original. You have outdone yourselves with this home!! I can’t wait to see it in person. Congratulations again.
