327 N. McNeil Rehab Update #3

7 years, 6 months ago 0

Progress is steady at the 327 N. McNeil renovation in the Evergreen Historic Distric of Memphis, TN.  We passed our electrical and gas inspections this week but weren’t so lucky with plumbing.   We should get that taken care of in the coming week along with our mechanical and framing inspections.  Once those are done, we can close everything up, lay down new sub-flooring in the bathrooms and laundry and sheetrock the studded walls.

We filled in the trench dug for the new 1″ main supply line and pressure washed the exterior of the house.  We are starting the exterior paint tomorrow.  After talking to the Memphis Landmarks Commission about typical paint colors for American Four Square style houses, we are going to use Sherwin Williams Messenger Bag for our major trim color.  It’s a brownish green color.  We will use a brighter green around the windows.  We haven’t decided what this color will be but the leading candidate is Tansy Green, also from Sherwin Williams. 

Next week should be busy.  Three inspections to pass, exterior painting, some window work and rearranging the kitchen cabinets.  Then floors and sheetrock as soon as we pass inspections.  Check out the video and let me know what you think.
