So many people want to see what goes into building a home so here are more updates
Contrast with a dark walnut stain on the railings. Railings were some leftover engineered structural beams (why waste them)
Started the exterior Landscaping (beautiful weather) Boulders were hand chiseled from Missouri Quarry (avg weight 2-3 tons). The color is fantastic.
Last coat of Poly on the railings will give it some good protection.
Pantry wall - I’m going to sheet it and put up concrete board so I can find a nice stone veneer to put on it. Should make for a good contrast (break up the wood a bit)
