March has flown by

We are about to finish off a house in Coaldale. Hopefully tomorrow will be my last day there until Lock-Out. This house will be a real eye-catcher! I will get more pictures after the painters are done but here is the baseboard and plinth blocks. That board is 7 inch 3/4 mdf with 1 inch 1/2 mdf on top. Big and fat, just like I like my baseboard.

These next few are from a house we just did the lock-out on. It is on the other side of Coaldale. Very nice little 1700 sq. ft. house.
Bryan did a smooth job on this railing. I am a huge fan of the stain that the painters used. It is dark yet you can see the grain. Excellent.

This is actually one of the only things that i helped build in this house. I was pretty much stuck over at Cornell's house for 3 months. Al and I did this little feature, and the picture doesn't do it justice. It is amazing in person. A great simple addition to a ceiling to really make it stand out. Something similar will be in my future home.

This house has the normal Castlerock Design and Development Inc. style case and base, it looks so good. The mantle was done nicely by Bryan.

Bryan build this bench seat in the master bedroom. Quite nice I think. The heat register is build right into the baseboard! Genius!

So this is the next house we are going to. It is right next door to the "Duff" house which previously was displayed in a post. It is the first two-story house we have done. I am pumped cause this is the type of house that Whit and I hope to build in the next couple years!

My Big Boy Roman

Roman had is birthday this past saturday. One year already! That is shocking. So we had alittle party of grandparents and a house of kids (all Bryans!!!!). Here is one of his presents that Whit got him, a nice $6 present from Superstore. He loves this little horse. When he first saw it I ran up to the face, grabbed the ear and picked it up so he could look it in the eye and started talking to it. They have been great friends ever since.

I finally got around to recovering the recliner/rocker chair that I had when I was a little boy. My grandma H. bought Sean and I these chairs and we love them. Somehow mine was the only one that survived and I found it and recovered it. Red to match many items in the house and Roman loves it. He went straight to it and climbed right on. It will be his chair for our Laker games.

He looks like such a big boy sitting with his present from Grandma Davis. Sure has more hair that I do!

As a side note, Romes got his shots today and was weighted and measured, he is 25 pounds. Can't remember height but something like 4 ft 5in. I'm sure!

Finally Done!!!!

It has been a long time coming but we are out of this house... finally... well almost. Some carpet still has to go in th office and then we put base on in there... then we are done completley!!!! Finally!
As a wrap up here we go with some pics.

This is one of my favorite parts of this house. Think brown leather couch set with a flat screen TV in the center case. Beautiful downstairs area. By the way, that is carpet on the floor. To me this picture makes it look like tile or something!

Another shot of the fireplace/ bookshelf. Just beautiful I think!

The windows downstair stained up beautifully. The boxes give so much more wood surface and really allow the colors to come out.

Here is what the headers look like finished. I think on a previous post I showed them pre-stain.

Here is a look at the railing now that the carpet has been laid on the stairs. This turned out so great. Brilliant job by Bryan!

That is all, no more pictures of this house cause I have grown tired of it! Too long to get it finished. On to the next one!
