This is the first of the exterior sconces to be installed. These are from Hubbardton Forge, a collective that actually does hand forge at least parts of their lighting products. It was the builder's idea to put redwood plinths behind the sconces, which looks great.

Work is proceeding rapidly--they've installed the washer and drier, the refrigerator, most of the ceiling fans, the screen porch finish work is almost done. They've put up the fence posts for fence enclosing the back yard and should have it up tommorrow.

We've got a PODS pod sitting in our driveway waiting for us to fill it with our crap. We started packing in earnest yesterday and expect to spend at least this week at it. I'm taking the week off to work on it and, hopefully, my mother will be here tommorrow (Tuesday) to help watch Dada while we pack (she called this evening to say she wasn't feeling well and didn't know if she was going to be well enough to travel tommorrow--let's hope it's just a 24-hour bug.

CIMG3216They also got the stairwell banister and the upstairs railing installed, but we're not happy with some of the details--the building supervisor indicated he's not entirely happy with the metalwork either but I didn't press him for details. We'll discuss it tommorrow but it's nothing that can't be changed.
