Hardware arrives

Steven took delivery today of more Schlage locksets purchased from Amazon at nearly 40 percent savings over the “big box” stores. Everything should now be on site in preparation for installation.

Ron Dahlke from Ranserve opened up doors and drawers at Emerald Hill to surprise Steven with several other deliveries.

Above, this device from Hafele features two power outlets and two USB charging ports. It will be installed into the countertop of the island, to power appliances and charge devices. It pops up when needed, disappears below the island countertop when idle. Cool. Suggested by Aaron at Central Texas Custom Cabinets.

These are the big pulls for the front door -- one for exterior, one for interior -- from Sugatsone, delivered by Jonathan at Push Pull Open Close.
These are the big pulls for the front door — one for exterior, one for interior — from Sugatsone, delivered by Jonathan at Push Pull Open Close. They look small in the photo, but they are beefy, substantial, heavy.

Jonathan at Push Pull Open Close also delivered a small carton packed with brown paper bags, each one labeled. Inside each bag is one set of hardware to open, close and latch each pocket door.

Steven opened one of the brown paper bags. Inside is, yes, the pocket door hardware that Jacquela and Steven specced.
