Well, the windows have to be cleaned, lights have to be installed and a few touch ups are jet to be done, but it is already looking quite spiffy.

The top caps for the roof were going on today as well. They are still missing over the red area. The undersie of the red boxes are going to be red as well.

We started today on the exterior painting. But as we don't have pictures of it yet, here is a shot from the hallway. The curved ceiling above the staircase coming up to the second floor received the same red that the exterior library volumes will too. The painting here is obviously not done.

Can't help but to show you some more of the colors. The pictures are a bit fuzzy, but they still make us smile. The image above is a look into the hallway. You can see the bookcases missing and the flooring. It's going to be magnificent when it is all done.

We stopped by our cabinet maker today. We had been messing around with the details of the simple shelving boxes for the library. We ended up with a reveal detail that made him and us happy.

Here is a good shot of the current state. As you can see, we are missing the caps on the roof parapets and the top of the awning. Also keep in mind that the exterior color is yet to change. The little box sticking out from the wall as well as the volume housing the library in the rear is going to be red and the main part of the building is going to be of a darker color.
The Solar Panels were installed. As you can see there are two of them. They are being hooked up to the plumbing system with a holding tank and back-up electrical heater. They will supply the hot water for the entire building. The cost of the system will be offset by the lack of utility bills within a few years.
Watch a quick and dirty YouTube clip on it. (We are no cinematographers here, but give it a try!)
