On the advice of a friend whose husband is a contractor, I began to look into owner-building. I found this website and downloaded the book yesterday. I'm halfway through it and this whole thing is enthralling... but I've figured out that I need to slow down and do this right.

Well, we did manage to get away for a couple of days.  But spent most of the vacation time working on the house.  Hoping to get the permanent CO inspection done next Monday.  Les has been hard at work on the decks and trying to decide how he wanted to tie the wraparound sections together.  He decided on a sunburst pattern, lots of work and now he is going to have to do that at every corner.  I'm so glad he still has creative energy left and doesn't just take the quick way out to get things done.

I have been tiling again, kitchen floor this time and we decided to add a decorative border around the whole kitchen, it has been a lot of work, but we really like the way it is coming out so far.  Grouting this whole thing is going to be a hell of a job.

Well, at least this should be the last vacation we have to spend working. : )

Also, this work is much more gratifying than framing or taping and mudding.  The finishing touches are what makes it all worthwhile.

Sunburst pattern to connect all the wrap around deck sections. Lots of work, but looks cool.
New lighting going up for CO inspection.
More lights.
Callie likes the deck tie-in pattern too, she was out inspecting the quality of the work.
Deco tile border.
More creative work, framing in the screen porch ceiling fan. He has the octagon thing going everywhere!
Love the sloped ceiling. Picture doesn't show it well enough, but looks very cool.
