Jay finished the standing seam metal roofing today. He made it look easy and fast by putting the drip cap up one day, putting the pans on another day and seaming it today. There was a lot of snow shoveling in between.

We talked with Ed Burke of Rocky Dale Gardens about a green roof but opted for metal. I'd like to do one someday. Ed reccomended a book on green roofs by a man named Snodgrass.

kitchen faucet

Sage at Close to home suggested this faucet. It is made by an italian company - Gessi. Their products are similar to Dornbracht in styling and quality but less expensive. Thanks Sage.

bath plumbing fixtures

Duravit came through with their special super secret login information. Pictured here are the toilet, vanity and shower pan.  The sink that I have chosen has a smaller bowl and more "counter" space on the sides.


The plumbers are roughing in for the fixtures and faucets.  Yesterday Andrew and and I test fit the shower base. I'll post more pictures as soon as Duravit gives me security clearance.

Last week I visited Red Concrete. I am considering using a concrete countertop with integral concrete sink in the tiny kitchen.
