Several weeks ago, Brad had warned us that the progress on the house may seem like it's starting to slow down. So far that hasn't happened. Today the job site was buzzing with activity again.

Although there was only one tile crew present, they were busy grouting the mudroom and pantry floor, the medallion in the entry, and the front porch.

Dana was back at the job site installing two more cabinets, the bookcase in the playroom and the storage cabinet under the stairs. He and his son were also installing the crown mouldings on the kitchen cabinets.

Russ finished the stair ends on the lower flight of stairs and started working on the rails. Here is a picture of the newel and the banister. He still needs to attach the wrought iron balusters (also called spindles).

And finally, Troy and his crew were hard at work again. Today they finished almost all of the baseboards on the first floor. You can see some of their handiwork in the picture of the medallion and the picture of the stair rail, above.

Today we brought all of our faucet fixtures to the job site and spent about an hour with Brad marking the locations of the spouts, handles, soap dispensers, etc. We still need to do the whirlpool tub, but we have to wait until after Marblus has finished cutting the hole for the tub. Afterwards, we had to bring all the fixtures back home -- and in a few weeks we'll have to bring them back to the job site again so the plumber can install them!
