After ten days of waiting around, the workers got busy at Bobcat again. We have been promised it will be ready for occupancy in two weeks. I don’t think that means “done,” just safe to live in.
The thing that thrilled me the most was seeing the big chandelier finally mounted in the stairway. They’d been waiting to get the medallion you see hanging from the ceiling. It still needs painting and attaching. That adds a nice touch. I think there will be one in the master bedroom, too. All the power was on (except the master bathroom, which irritated Ruben), so we could see the lighting in all the bathrooms and such. Now the paint can be touched up and the rooms will be rooms. I noticed they put one of those gigantic utility fixtures in the master closet (not pictured, since there’s no power), so it will be like daytime in there.
What a relief to also be able to verify that almost all the plumbing is done. It’s nice to see faucets in all the sinks. I’d forgotten what the kitchen faucet looked like! I knew all the others, since they are the same ones we used in the Villa Park house, which I am quite happy with.
Plus there are actual toilets in the bathrooms. There was a big of grumbling that they were too fancy and caused some challenges, but by gosh, they are beautiful and have flushing power. I’ve put more photos of faucets and toilets in the gallery at the end of the post.
The elephant in the room (or at least it appears to be the size of an elephant) is that the bathtub and its faucet are still in the living room. I can’t wait to see THAT installed. Then all the master bath will need is the shower glass.
