the brick on the fireplace has been installed, and it is nice to have an earth tone color in the home now to warm things up a little. the brick on the fireplace against the commercial type windows looks great. it make it look like the brick goes from outside-in just like the main beams of the house. additionally, the main beams have been painted its light gray color. these beams pop nicely against the soft white exterior. a few more swipes of the mud on the wall, and paint and wood floor will be put in.

additional progress has been made over the past two weeks. the exterior has been caulked, primed and painted. exterior has been painted a soft white, while the beams are painted a light gray. the galvanized flashing around the brick and main beams are left exposed, while the flashing near the panels have been painted the same color. inside, speaker wiring and conduits have been run, and insulation installed. hopefully all has been put in order now, since the drywall will go up this week. this will make a very large difference when on the inside.
