first: i must offer my apologies. after we got back into town in mid-august, the rest of the month somehow flew by and then, yes, i started back in with architecture classes at the U of A (if anyone out there has ever been in architecture school, you will know that it’s a miracle i’m still upright, let alone doing blog posts). anyway, between that and trying to keep the contractors supplied with all of the fixtures, etc., they need to get their job done, life has been a challenge.
nevertheless, work has continued at our mud house apace. without further ado, a few updated images of the progress. these are in no particular order, and will no doubt not adequately convey all that’s happened in the past couple of months. hopefully, though they will tide you over until I can post again.
cheers for now,
recycled brick in the zaguan-our main entryway.
it’s gorgeous, isn’t it?
and another view.
concrete pavers are in now in most of the house!
lime plaster is up on the exterior.
our contractor keeps trying to get me rid of this pile of broken up concrete, but i’m clinging to the idea that we can somehow use it.
wood flooring in the bedrooms! i’ll be painting these-going for a relaxed, old farmhouse type feel.
the bathtub is back from the refinishers and looking fabulous. we originally found it in the house, all those many months ago.
and, once you lime plaster, the next step is to lime wash. this is my tom sawyer picture. anyone want to help? it’s really fun.
the furr out for the guest house kitchen wall. this is now covered over in drywall, as are almost all the other fur outs. we’ll cover them with earthen plaster so they blend.
guest bath tub! it’s a tiny bathroom, but it’s going to be nicely outfitted.
hexagonal cement tile going in in the guest bath (in front of the tub from the last photo. it’s even better than i’d pictured it.
master bath with furr out almost sheathed. the shower will be on the right, and the tub about where it is now. we’re leaving some of the walls rough, as you can see to the left.
some interior lime plaster in the living room area. i’m totally in love with the look and feel of it. note the wood floor going down as well.
and that’s all for the moment, folks. hope you’ve enjoyed!
