I sprayed and brushed polyurethane sealer on the ceiling of my kitchen and bath (the floor of the loft). Came out nice. Sealing it will help keep it looking nice.
I also finally put on the decorative braces under the box window. It is really lovely to see what I envisioned look as I hoped.
The goal of this weekend and last: finish installing the venting between the roof rafters, finish any modifications to the electrical wring, finish plumbing the water heater, mark the location of floor to sill studs on the floor, photograph every wall for future reference.
The next step is to find someone willing to actually give me a bid on spraying open cell foam on the walls and ceiling before Christmas. I have called two insulation contractors and the bids were wildly different.
I have ordered my bathroom sink, received my faucet, and medicine cabinet. When it arrived, the sink is too large as is the faucet. But I'm keeping the cabinet.
