Getting the trim installed. Hopefully will be painted by Friday. Waiting for more colonial cap to be delivered, it goes on the outside of the casing around the doors. You can see it on the window trim pictured.

THis thread reminds me so much of the house I have spent the past year doing. I subbed out a little more than you (drywall, trim, paint, kitchen cabinets, HVAC) however it was such a bear of a project, especially the demo, jacking, and rebuilding/redesigning of every aspect and system of the house. I wish I could have kept my original moulings they were just not in good enough shape after all was said and done...I did not splurge for the custom casings but wish I would have after seeing yours.

Your house looks amazing and I am excited to see the final pics once you are complete. Good luck and keep up the good work...

It has been a while since I updated. Here are some pics of the dining room renovation. Hopefully I will be painting in about a week.

I only had two of the outlets with the USP ports in them. Those are installed correctly (the TR label is not upside down). He asked me "how am I supposed to check those USB ports"....

Looking good !

I would call your home an American Foursquare style which is also known as a Prairie Box style in some areas.

The second floor door and deck are somewhat unusual for the style. I am wondering if someone added it later by converting a window to a door.
