victorian remodel interior progress

A few weeks have gone by. . once the walls were taped, mudded and sanded we moved ahead to install new flooring – 3.25″ white oak – soon to be sanded and finished.

Once the floors went in we moved ahead placing cabinet boxes.  We are installing kitchens designed by a local Scavolini [their website has some groovy tunes] shop.  We used the same finish in both apartments to tie the building together.

This mix of green tiles will cover the walls surrounding the bathtub/shower to the ceiling.  Interior doors are being installed – we chose a two-panel square sticking style to be a cleaner version of traditional.  A stack of original wood moulding awaits reuse.
