Carpeting & Railing

October 7, 2004

This morning I did two interviews on two different radio stations about our Open House. I was on Ed Burchfield's morning show on WPSL 1590, and I was also on Tom Teter's and Steve Melman's morning show on WSTU 1450. They were very gracious and let me describe the dome and our project. We gave the website address and directions to the dome. I really had a wonderful time with these guys.

Really exciting day, carpet and stair railing. The guys from Selections by Sandow came back to finish the downstairs carpeting. They cut the stair carpet and will have it stitched tomorrow for installation tomorrow! They also got the piece down for the loft/library area. Tomorrow they'll finish completely by doing the master bedroom carpeting too.

Brothers Skip and Dick Amelung custom made the railings for the staircase and installed them today. They are exactly what we were dreaming of when we first designed the staircase. It is so wonderful we have no words to describe how we feel.

More cleanup and details on Friday, kitchen cabinet finishing touches, more drywall, light fixtures and anything else we can do - (our last day before the Open House).
