week 25: wet bar installation

Daniil of Anctil Plumbing stopped by to reinstall our water heater. After 3.5 days, we are very glad to have our hot water back. Yay!

Dana of Guillory Construction installed the stainless steel wet bar cabinets and trimmed out the new kitchen cabinet. The trick with the kitchen cabinets was aligning the top bead, header and crown to that of the adjoining doorway. He fabricated and installed two door thresholds, vent covers for the AV room, as well as custom equipment shelves for AV room and wine cellar. He also started installing the base moulding. Today he’s milling in his shop the access door panels for the laundry room water turn off and water filter, a return grille, and a couple of flooring transition strips. The profile provided by the manufacturer was a couple inches too short, so Dana is making them. Thanks so much, Dana. We don’t know what we would do without you.

Brian of Custom Metal Fabrication installed the stainless steel open shelves above the wet bar. He also installed stainless steel sidesplash panels at our existing range. The simple clean lines and stainless steel cabinets and shelving of the wet bar in the basement mimic the kitchen aesthetic on the main floor. The wet bar thus becomes an extension of the kitchen.

Erik our contractor of Ostmo Construction picked up the rest of the light fixtures, removed some of the excess dirt near the egress window wells, dug out a stray metal pole in the side yard and cleaned up the jobsite. Thanks, Erik!

Last, but not least, Peter of Classico Marmo stopped by to scope out the project. He will be installing our granite countertops at the wet bar and wine cellar. He measured the area and took into account all the plumbing, cabinet and shelving constraints, and will produce a template. He’ll stop by again next week to verify the template.

Tune in next time for the cork tile install, cellar rack install, final mechanical, final plumbing and final electrical. We’re on the home-stretch now. Heehaw!
