It feels like weeks go by and nothing happens with the Pretty Old House and then suddenly there's a whirlwind of activity.
Last week the plumbers came and installed all new plumbing in two days.
The HVAC contractors put a heat pump in the attic and ran all the ductwork.
And I met the electrician to decide on the placement for the outlets, light fixtures and switches.
It took 3 hours and I was exhausted! Half the stuff he asked I'd never even thought about--especially the switches. Do I want a three-way by this door or that one? Yikes!
The doors and windows were delivered so--you guessed it--we have to pick out door knobs.
Or as they say in the "business" entry sets.
Lowe's has this one from Baldwin.
I like the handle's little hook design and the escutcheon plate.
Luckily I bought almost all the light fixtures at the Restoration Hardware Outlet in Destin back in December.
The prices were just incredible.
Here are a few things I got:
This is the Fluted Column fixture for the foyer but in nickel. I hope it doesn't hang down too far. We measured and think it'll be okay, but you never know.
I picked a pair of Campaign Sconces for the Hall Bath. I think they fit with the period of the house
I'd like to find a faucet for the sink with handles that have a twist.
This one from American Standard is pretty close to what I have in mind.
