lightBOX is moving forward, though most of what has been going on is all behind the scenes paperwork. Materials are on their way for the construction of the house addition. The Ultra Frame wall panels from Transcon Steel should show up next week, our floor trusses and the glulam framing package will come soon after. We are also awaiting a big package from Timberlinx that will be full of all of the mechanical fasteners we'll be using to put together the exposed wall of glulam framing and then we can jump into the bit of demo on the existing house to make way for the addition. It should get really interesting really soon. Lots to do and lots to think about and lots to get ready for. The big push is on.
Over at the carport/studio, most of the exterior paint is in place. It makes a huge difference to the finished look of the place just by covering up the "primer red" of the steel and the weld joints. The colour is a wonderful dark purple-y grey. It works well with the white carport ceiling along with the grey of the metal siding. The handrails and stair structure are all to be the same colour as well. It should look great against the wood slats that will screen the top run of stairs.
The bathroom is awaiting a full width 2' tall mirror that will sit atop the tile above the sink,with a horizontal cabinet above that. That will mean that the simple circular IKEA wall fixture will sit atop the mirror. We'll also switch out the exposed PVC plumbing all plumbers seem to want to install with a good old-fashioned chrome P-trap.
