The rainy season has begun. It rained off and on all day today as Ray worked on the greenhouse. We are coming up against the weather. The contractor says the studio will be finished in the next two weeks. Most of the work that is left to do is inside, except for painting.
Ray has been trying to get the framework for the greenhouse painted so he could start putting the glazing on it. He painted between periods of rain today. I painted for awhile.
That gray-green color he is painting will be the main color for the entire building. Our son, Andy, came out to help in the afternoon. By the end of the day the frame was painted and the roof for the greenhouse was in place. Now the rest of the work can be finished much more easily even if it rains.
They have laid the sub-floor in the studio and plan to install the flooring this week. It will be commercial grade vinyl tiles in gray and white. Pretty much like this:
The floor guy called about the stairs. He says those tiles don't work well on stairs. If they put them on the stairs they would need a metal cap on the front edges. Ugh. He suggested commercial carpet. Ugh. I don't like either of these ideas. I asked about that flexible vinyl stair covering you see in commercial buildings. Hideously expensive. I am thinking, at this point, that painting them is probably the best option. Simple. Cheap.
