That doesn't look like the optical fibre method. It does look nifty.

Love the Soar tubes idea. I would put them in any house I was having built or remodeled.

I took these photos over the weekend. Progress has halted while waiting for the kitchen countertops to be installed. Installation is scheduled for next Monday. Plastering of the kitchen area can not take place until the countertops have been installed. The first photo is the guest bedroom looking into the front hallway and the second is of the marble bath room counter tops.

Next photos are of the fireplace area showing final color of walls and ceiling, and the pantry and kitchen area, awaiting plastering.

Gorgeous marble. That's really coming along. I bet you can hardly wait for it to be ready to move in.

It is really shaping up, when do we move in?

I think you may have trouble adjusting to all of this new found space!
