A lot has been happening (good and bad) since my last post.  The roof was completed as well as the dormers. I used Permafelt synthetic underlayment that will allow us to shingle after we paint to avoid the mess.  It cost $200 more than black felt but you can wait 6 months before shingles and it has more traction.  Definitely worth it.  We got our fireplace framed out, the plumbers started to stubb out (Fred's plumbing), and the siding (Tim and John) got rolling today.  They got as far as they could because the flashing is going up and they should continue after that. I am using a 8 1/4 inch Hardi lap (the larger slats look better).

There were 14 people at the house today and I took the day off to handle a lot of things.  The plumbers cut out the the Styrofoam to get to the pipes.  They were a little apprehensive at first because they also had to drill through the top sill plate which is made of metal, but they got it done.  All of the windows are in (even though two of them are broken!)  Windows should come with just the frame, and the glass installed later.  I have heard from several people to expect windows to break (should that really be the norm?!).  Anyway, the front door should be here tomorrow and installed.  The staircase is still not framed.  Just waiting for the traffic to die down and there are still some loose ends before we are completely blacked in.  I only have three weeks until school lets out so the countdown has begun.  I accomplished a lot today being off and I wonder how these things would have gotten done if I weren't there.  I am being very pretentious.  The French doors in the back are fir. If you look at the pic off the balcony into the two back dormer windows, look at the left hand side and you can barely see a barn with a green roof and a steeple made to look like the barn at Churchill Downs.  That is the home of Kentucky Derby champ Kent Desormeaux.  He has a track in front of the barn.  Cool view!
