This week, trim is going up around the windows, the flooring is starting, and the gutters are going up on the outside.
Silver checks out the hardwood (oak) going in the great room and the dining room. We looked at bamboo initially, but didn't like the colors it came in and didn't have the option of staining it ourselves. There will be tile in the foyer, so there's a kinda square cutout there. In case you're curious, the subfloor (black) is asphalt felt and the board direction is perpindicular to the floor joists. (A quicky how-to guide is here.)
Detail of the 45 degree (mitred) joint at the corner of the foyer tile area. We'll eventually sand and stain the wood a fairly dark brown. But that won't be for a while (almost the last thing done).
Wood on the main stairs landing.
Also wood in the hallways on the second floor. All the bedrooms will be carpet and the bathrooms tile.
The great room with the wood all down (next day)
View from the dining room looking back into the great room. All the hardwood for the house was laid in two days.
We're using a mix of picture frame and stool and apron styles for the window trim. Our bathrooms are a little small (intentional) so we went with the slightly less intrusive picture frame there but with the more formal stool and apron elsewhere. (All about window trim trim here). This is a stool and apron trimmed window in the garage.
More stool and apron trimmed windows, but in the master bedroom.
