All work and No Play...Not here!

Wow, another crazy busy day! I'm always amazed at how much can get done in a day. 
Today I talked with Dan and Daryl about what we wanted for the master shower. Originally, Mike had planned for this to be glass walls, but Tom and I had envisioned walls with towel racks, so we had to come up with a solution that would support our shower walls, yet keep them open to the bathroom, so we have "windows" in the walls to secure the walls to the ceiling and hopefully keep them from toppling over with the weight of tile on the other side of the wall.  We will still have a glass door between the walls though. 
Downstairs in the basement we were happily surprised to see that the air ducts have been hidden away in a tray ceiling for us. It looks AWESOME! We had no idea how they would hide the air ducts, but figured it wouldn't be anything fancy. We forgot how awesome our builders are at taking things to another level and really making it look good. 
Here's scaffolding in the media/storage/who-knows-what-this-room-will-end-up-being room to lower the ceiling a little to hide all the pipes crossing back and forth here. 

Ductwork for the pantry vent comes through the downstairs office. 
More of the ductwork is being completed in the basement garage. 
Looks a bit shiny in here now! ;)
All the vents have been covered up with metal to prevent them from getting filled with sawdust or other such things. 
Our master closet window is getting framed in.
Tom and Tommy were so proud of themselves here. Dan and Daryl told us a story about how they like to hide tool bags from each other, just for the fun of it. After some of the silly stories we heard, my boys decided to have fun with the toolbags left behind, so they hid it in the fireplace. Boys will be boys I guess! ;)
The fireplace vent hasn't been connected yet. Hopefully it will be soon?
There are a lot of pipes happening in the basment living room. 
Guest bedroom closet with the air duct. 
The mechanical room with the water pipes and the HVAC thermostat wire. 
I'm ready for bed now though. Tomorrow's going to bring a lot of new fun, I'm sure! :)
Pin It!
