How about marble for your stair steps? Pretty classy, eh? They were just beginning the installation of the slabs when I was there, and I was asked to be careful when walking on them. On the second floor I found two workmen preparing interior doors for installation, and these too looked quite nice. Notice the blue tarp on the floor to protect the newly installed tile flooring.
Alas, with only three weeks to go before our departure, I won’t see anyone move into the house. I guess that will have to wait until our first return visit.
