Windows are in

.
The windows were installed today. Rain held off until tonight (probably around midnight or so) so no problems with that for window installation. Looks like everything was just as we wanted (with the correct obscure glass in all the right windows, etc.). Looks great to us!
.
The "rough" portion of the gas fireplace was also installed today as well. We are using one of these (Chateau 42):

Not sure of the finish styling yet, though.

I called/emailed about appliances and home theater stuff today. Hopefully I can get the ball rolling on those items before long. I think we are going to get some GE Profile appliances - have to go in and look at what the current models are as the last time we looked it was about a year ago. For home theater, I am thinking about a 50-56" DLP TV with speakers from Paradigm:

I have a couple friends that got their speakers there and have been very happy with them. Need to go look at specifics on models and prices to know for sure, though. The sales guy I spoke with on the phone assured me that he has some nice products in the product type and budget range I was looking at.

I have Paradigm speakers (if I ever get them reconnected) and love them; great stuff at reasonable prices.

Good to hear, thanks.

He said they would be able to match the bookshelf fronts and in-ceiling surrounds to be voice-matched, something I have not really seen elsewhere much (in taking a quick look around). One of my friends went a bit overboard when he got his, I am just looking for something a little more basic. Heard nothing but good things about them, though.
