2011 Ultimate Beach House, Week 9: Prime, doors & wood floors

Pill 

We are in week 9 of building the famous Ultimate Beach House & we’re here again giving you the skinny on what’s going on. This week the house gets its custom made Bolection doors installed. Bolection is a specialty door company that has over  17,000 designs to choose from, plus the choice to have them create your ideal door; now that’s a lot of choice! Builders have completed installing the pine wood plank flooring on the second floor & the interior wood trim has been primed. Bathroom tiles and kitchen cabinets are getting put in this week and the exterior decking is nearly complete.

2011 Ultimate Beach House, Week 8

1 
 As you can see the builders have been busy working away completing the metal roofing, interior wood trim and nearing the completion of the Azek deck. This week interior doors are being installed and the ceramic tiling is getting started, along with the hustle and bustle of meetings in & out of the East Beach Office about cabinet colors, and décor. It’s all very exciting to see and hear everyone’s ideas and thoughts! 4 3

2011 Coastal Living House – Whistle while you work

3  

It’s going to be a gorgeous week here at East Beach, well up until this weekend’s thunderstorms  but don’t let that get you down, enjoy looking outside your office window at that warm sunshine. (If you don’t have a window in your office or are still living in the cold we suggest buying a sunlamp and plugging into your imagination.) This week is similar to last week- the siding work is continuing on the exterior.  Most of the Hardee lap siding is in place, and the shingle work is progressing.  In the inside, the trim carpenters are about halfway finished- the bead board ceilings are in place in the great room, and most of the wainscoting is in place.

2011 Coastal Living House- Trimming the house

3 
 The devastating storms that swept across 7 states last week touched down hardest in Virginia in Washington County 4 hours north west of Norfolk. Fortunately these brutal storms did not do any damage to the site or the house, but we did get some 30-40 mile per hour winds and driving rain for about an hour. This week we are back to beautiful 82 degree weather.

The theme for this week is trim, trim trim!

 The exterior trim and Hardie siding are nearing completion on the north side of the house facing the Bay.  The carpenters have been busy all week on the interiors, installing the base and crown moldings. This week, were expecting the Bolection interior doors.  We hear they are beautiful!
