After 2+ years we are finally done. Had our final inspection on Tuesday, August 3rd, and everything went great. As the building inspector said: "Now your work really begins".
I have posted some new pictures of our finished living-kitchen-dining area. Of special note are the bamboo floors, they have turned out exceptionally well. Quite durable, cheapter than hardwood or pine, and a renewable resource. Made by Home Legend and we got them at Home Depot.
