Fixtures and fencing! (and a shower door!)

don't fence me in

The side fences are (almost) all the way in. We went with Hardie for the front part of the fence and treated for the remaining parts. The Hardie will be painted the gray on the house and the treated will be stained gray. It didn't go in exactly as planned, but it'll work...


Our lighting fixtures are going in, and they look awesome! Neat to see the house starting to look actually finished.

Fan in the master bedroom:

Bedside sconces in the master:

Ceiling fan in the living room:

Dining room chandelier (we kept the crystal to install ourselves later...):

The Guggenheim-ish ceiling fan in the guest room upstairs:

The recessed smoke detectors:

The amoeba-ish light over the kitchen sink:

The PH5 in the front entry:

 The ceiling fan in the office (which is going to need a shorter down-pole...):

The outdoor plug covers (we have better ones but we'll need to replace the plugs):

speakers of the house

I spent a few hours yesterday working on the low-voltage stuff (the stuff that's "mine", not being handled by the builder). This included installing the ceiling speakers (not installing the wall speakers until move-in: too easy to steal):

shower door

And the shower door is now installed:
