We got word that move-in will be in 2 weeks! Note to self: actually book movers before celebrating too much.
It’s been a busy last month with making tons of purchases for the electricians, plumbers, carpenters to install, and picking out colors for the painters.
We went with a white oak, and chose a clear stain that has a yellow-brown color. Kripa wanted to avoid any red undertones, and I wanted to keep the natural wood color instead of staining darker or artificially lightening with a whitener – so here’s where we ended up:
We’ve had a stove since February, and a faucet since March – and they’re finally installed! We’ve had to finalize a lot of decisions, like the pendants over the island, over the past few weeks to make sure they arrived in time to be installed.
We’re still waiting on some of the cabinet pulls, most notably the appliance pulls, which means the fridge and dishwasher can’t have the panel installed yet.
[Kripa: I had to take out pictures of the stove installed. Since it’s such a beauty, it deserves its own post. (This is where Brian starts nagging me to write that post…)]
The hood is now constructed but not installed – hopefully it’s painted and installed next week, and we can show it off.
Everything coming together
The pictures below show a bunch of the in-progress areas – which is basically the whole house.
Wow! Can’t believe the move-in around the corner… so exciting! Are u excited or exhausted? Will be so much more fun seeing it in person, but I will have to wait for that. Good luck!

Love the project. We are about the embark on a renovation of a two-flat in Lakeview this year. Would love your recommendations on architects and contractors!
