Framing Finale; Masonry Continues; Ductwork Begins

The amazing framing crew completed their first day of work on July 23.  Now, a fast six weeks later, their work is complete!
We now have stairs leading into the new basement!  
I ventured downstairs for the first time since the concrete was completed. It turns out that we have a nice big basement, just waiting for the creation of a rumpus room.

Kitchen Framing
The short wall in the foreground was added; this will contain the sink, the dishwasher, and two lower cabinets.

More Masonry
The masons finished the brickwork of the chimney today.  They will finish tomorrow by pouring a concrete cap (note the wood form, ready to go.)

Getting Our Ducts in a Row
The HVAC contractor began hanging ductwork in the basement today.  Cool!  or Hot!  (depending on what temperature of air you need delivered.)

Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
