All of the fixtures and appliances for the house have been arriving. We took our chances with a lot of online (tax-free) ordering, and so far so good.
Four men with no straps lifted all the major appliances from the ground up to the back porch. The back porch is 7+ feet off the ground. The fridge and the double oven each weigh 200 lbs. It was impressive.
Interior painting started this weekend (done by a crew led by Jorge Morales). In order to enhance the natural light reflecting throughout the house, all of the living and kitchen space is painted white. The owners were interested in color for the other spaces, so each of the rooms off the living space have their own unique colors (some subtle, some not).
