Here is a quick pic of the kitchen

Very nice. Is that Cambria quartz?

Silestone: dddd Just check if it's the original ...; -d has been dealing with kitchen stone for 20 years. Currently, you can buy identical fakes from China for $ 40-80 per square meter

Very nice. Similar look in the pic to the Cambria quartz we used in our master bath. (I can’t remember the design style of the Cambria right now.)

I have some tall walls and i want to cover with vines. WHat's the best way to have them creep up the wall? I have wooden trellises but i think they are not professional/finished enough looking for me. I have seen those metal wirings used but they seem to be prefabricated.

So my question is what are people using to cover walls with vines? Prefabricated metal trellises or manually wired walls?

I would like to finish pool building till the end of next week. I guess it will be quite beautyful. But moreover I almost finished vinil siding. It was the part of the house I've been thinking about all the time. I also been thinking about additional stuff to wash it, and here is what i read then. I hope it will be amazing..

Really depends on what vines you want to creep. Some of them actually attach into the wall and can be destructive so make sure you do some research. Some of them do not need anything aside from a wall itself, and others will use something as simple as fishing line or twine (something that doesn't stick out before the vines take over)

Starting to see some progress on the house. Front patio poured. TNG, siding, and roof soffits started. They're working on HVAC, electrical, and plumbing now.

You gonna paint or stain/seal that cedar tongue-in-groove? What material are you using for the soffits?

Looking good!

Funny you should ask. We're struggling with the exterior color decisions. The wall around the front windows (and back patio windows) will be stone of some kind. Everything else not yet covered will be stucco. We're thinking white stone, white stucco, maybe a medium grey for the siding and either dark or a rich wood stain for the tongue-in-groove. There is also tongue-in-groove under the patio cover. We're thinking either match the rich wood color or do a light blonde stain. Thoughts??

Soffits are made of the same fiberboard as the siding. We would have preferred more tongue-in-groove, but didn't catch it in time and don't want to pay to have it changed. Maybe down the line.

Sounds sharp! I like the ideas. I would match the underside of the patio cover with whatever color you stain the tongue-in-groove on the front of the house. I wouldn't go too dark on the cedar - don't want to lose the contrast with the gray paint on the siding. I like the idea of matching the stucco and stone, though! The texture difference should be enough without the colors being different. Don't want the exterior to come across as too patchwork.

No worries - it sounds like you've got enough wood accents on the exterior without fussing about the soffits. Less work to just have them painted cement board, too.

Can't wait to see the progress!

I also fabbed up a custom aluminum cover for the top so i can use the firepit as a table due to such small amount of space in the sideyard...
I assume you've got that connected to a natural gas line, as I don't see a propane tank sitting around anywhere?

Correct, it's NG version and I ran a line from the pool equipment room.

basement project on hold for the time being as i've been working at finishing and painting the final bay in the garage! got some more black cabinets on order to be installed on the open right side wall there as well as a black refrigerator/freezer! measured the cabinets and refrigerator and i have plenty of room



also received both my tire storage racks from TireRack.com. installed one of them and the other will be installed above my HF tool box. i also ordered the tire totes to give it a nicer aesthetics appeal. Very easy to install if i may add






this is the wall where the new refrigerator and cabinets will be installed


now wanna ask you guys if you think having the garage rails painted flat black look cool or should i leave it metal looking? i think the flat black looks pretty clean. let me know

The black looks good, but won’t the tracks just wear back to aluminum after a few openings? Maybe it won’t be noticeable.

if you ever look at the inside rails the wheels sit on the bottom part of the track. it doesn't rub against the side or top.

Looks good. I've always thought just plain galvanized steel looks cheap and like shit most of the time.
