Details, Details Part II

Our masons saved the best for last and have completed the library gable with its brick arch and corbels.

Here is the fireplace nearly complete inside the lanai.

The two pieces of wood sticking out are called corbels too. These corbels are made from reclaimed barn timbers and we have a hefty barn timber mantel that will be installed on top of them. The masons will be moving on to the front entry and then topping off the chimney next week. And we will be right behind them with grading, irrigation, landscape and sod.

Ahhh! Feels good to be on the old critical path.
