Plaster, windows and doors...
I have always loved construction. Thank you so much for this series. I'm fascinated by the differences in construction - and attitudes. You are doing a fabulous job of getting your home built the way you want it to be. Kudos.
Looking great! See you next year. You will be moved in, settled, calling it home.
it is looking wonderful...i would be insane from the process and you are handling it like a pro. cannot wait to see the finished home!
It was all worth it and the “ups and downs” of the process will be dinner table talk in your beautiful new abode a long time after 😉
Wow, really great to see the progress!
It looks beautiful!
How exciting! Your dream is becoming reality!
Looks terrific! Fingers crossed for June!
Wow!!! Huge progress. I appreciate the update, all the details, and all the photos.
2 questions: 1. Is the floor heat radiant heat with water lines heated by solar? Or? 2. How high is the living room ceiling. It looks like it could be 12 feet?! And the other rooms?
woo hoo. so exciting! cant wait to see it in june. Abracos!!
Nancy, it looks fabulous indeed. Can't wait to see it when it is finished. A couple of questions:
1) Will the drop down ceiling make the living room and kitchen the same height? Will they also add insulation above that drywall for heat/cold and perhaps sound from the rooftop terrace?
2) I thought the front doors had to be all wood (Pombaline style) with no glass? Kind of like the fake "Pombaline Roof" from the street level view.
Wow. Your home is looking great. How was your trip to Italy?
It looks great and I am certain you’re believing the end is in sight! I’m impressed that they will deliver mail. We have a lovely box built into our outer wall, complete with a key for us to retrieve the mail from the inside of the wall...after a couple months of receiving no mail I inquired and discovered that the only way to receive mail in our village is to collect it at the town hall where they maintain a pile and sort through it when I go in once every couple weeks 🤷🏻♀️
Your place is looking great! Thx for the updates. Makes me think we can do this thing too with our Tavira remodel!
Hey Nancy - it’s looking great! We’re going to do a trip up to Porto to check out the shops you recommended. Did you look into auction houses at all - for other items?
