And it continues...

Okay, it's Saturday night and I'm sitting at home blogging about the house...again. Yes, I should be doing other stuff. I have a bad head cold and don't feel great. We worked on cleaning the house so that the painter could access the last room to be painted and so that we could get things ready for the carpet-layers who will be installing on Monday the 14th. So I'm wiped out and this is what I can do.




Okay, first things first...the cooktop finally got hooked up on Monday, and now the installation is complete - finally. It works like a dream...


...Jess had to light all the burners to show you just how great it is.


But it's more than just the firepower, it's the ingenious design of the grates. As you see here, the grates are completely continuous across the cooktop, allowing movement of pots and pans completely and effortlessly across the cooktop.


Here's another interesting feature: the grates are reversible. Each can be turned over to create a wok grate that allows direct flame contact without a wok ring. Uh huh. I heard that dirty thought, Crash.


I haven't really posted any pictures of the sunroom yet, but here is the first...the sunroom is a beautiful shade of peach that doesn't look like peach in this picture. The kitchen is also painted this shade where there is paintable wall. It offers a nice view of the backyard (but it was dark when this picture was taken, so you can't see it) and will be great for Sunday mornings with a cup of coffee and the New York Times.


Haven't posted any pictures of the basement yet, either, until today. The basement was totally gutted and remodeled, and now has an office...


...and a nice big laundry room.

So, that's today's tour. Now that we're getting close to finished, I will probably wait to post more photos until it's complete. Yes, Crash, I promise. Happy? :P

Actually, we will probably have several. We have a number of people we want to invite over, so we'll let you know some of the dates and you can choose which works best for you.

Dig your blog. I especially like the pics of your new home. It's like watching "Curb Appeal", "This Old House" and "Designer Guys" all at the same time!
