The last few weeks have been jam-packed... so it feels like we're making some good progress. The crew from the gas company came back the week after putting in the tank and ran the inside lines and the line to the generator. They also installed the tankless water heater and were great about rounding up the exterior wall cap that was needed that apparently the manufacturer did not include in the installation kit. All rough-in inspections -- plumbing, electrical, mechanical, framing -- were completed with relative ease with just a few little picky things on the electrical and framing to take care of before moving forward with the insulation. We were approved for early electrical service which we are really thrilled about since now the 250' wire from the panel of the house we're living in and the multiple extension cords can be taken up (and probably re-used somewhere else). The meter is running!

The insulation guys showed up last week and finished up in about a day and a half, so now we're on to the finishing work! We hired a carpenter and his crew to put up the tongue and groove ceiling and beams in our family room and hopefully they will be finished with that in the next day or so. One of the crew has jury duty this week, so there are only two guys doing the work. Once they finish with the ceiling, they will move on to putting down the tongue and groove flooring on our porch and build the exterior stairs off of the porch. The tongue and groove flooring has been a bit of a nightmare to prep, as we (mostly Don) have had to prime it on all sides prior to its installation.

The drywall delivery is set for next Monday, the 28th, and the drywall crew to probably start the following day. While they're working inside, we plan to be painting outside. Don is caulking and patching now, and Kathy is trying to make the final color selections which is proving to be somewhat difficult!
