As you can see from the picture below, we officially started painting today. Colleen is busy priming the kitchen for paint and I'm (supposed to be) washing the walls of the master bedroom and taping them in prep for painting.
Just because we are painting, don't think the addition is done, it is just to the point where painting needs to happen so that other things can happen. In the case of the kitchen, the counters are due to be delivered soon (about a 50/50 chance of having them here before Thanksgiving). The bedroom ceiling has to be done so they can install our light fixture so that we can get our plugs and switches installed (so that we can do more painting).
On a general note, it is not often that things go more or less right for a few weeks in a row, but we are definitely on a good streak recently. My November 7th post made some bold predictions about things that I hoped would get done, and nearly all of them are done or on schedule: The cabinets are in; the countertops were measured last Monday and due in soon; the grading was done despite the heat pump; the vast majority of the trim has been finished; and Colleen and I are in fact painting. Hopefully that momentum can continue for a few more weeks. Lots of important stuff is due in soon.
