Driveway Pavement Installation - Village Cape CodVillage Cape Cod

Banned

I have to be banned from the house again due to all the paint fumes in combination with my baby bump. You can smell the fumes all the way from the sidewalk. I don’t know how the painters do it everyday. The crazy part is that they have only started working on the stairs and staining our downstairs bathroom vanity and our kitchen island.

Luckily, I am kept busy with the new driveway, picking out paint colors, finishing up on lighting choices and everything else left for the house. It’s hard not to go in and see everything as it happens though. At least Jay can run in really quick and take a few snapshots of everything happening. He even brought some of the cabinet doors to me to see the coloring.

Below is what is going on with the driveway as of Friday. Notice the missing tree to the right of the driveway. I think it opens it up a lot. I have always hated the placement of the tree. The roots caused so many issues, so it was time for it to go.

They also put in the railing on our upper porch:

Today they continued with the paint and finished up on the driveway. Look how the driveway turned out. I think it is helping to complete the outside. I even got a thumbs-up of approval from a couple walking their dog on how the house is progressing today. I love all the positive comments our neighborhood is making towards our remodel. I know it must be a pain to see this for 5 months.

Jay was able to grab the cabinet doors to the bathroom and kitchen to show me as I stood outside and waited (no fumes, but millions of mosquitos). I think we are going to put one more layer of stain on the cabinets to darken them up just a little more.
