Progress has definitely slowed in the last 6 months. Once you move in, it's a lot harder to work at the same pace. Here's what we have done

  • Built several boulder retaining walls
  • planted all front yard landscaping and trees
  • installed irrigation system
  • installed underground gutter drainage
  • installed 3,000 sq ft blacktop circle drive
  • installed sidewalk
  • finished small deck and railing
  • finished large glassed in second-floor sunroom
  • finished all main floor living areas

I am still finishing up interior trim. I ran out and have more ordered. I also have doors to adjust, cracked grout to fix, touch-up paint, and drywall pops. We are also hydroseeding the lawn next weekend. I also hope to fire up the radiant heat in the basement over the next month, and get the final Energy Star and LEED inspections done.

In October I'll be starting on the basement. I plan to finish off about 2,500 sq ft of living space down there.

I'm happy to report a $79 average electric bill through summer with the AC on! I am still adjusting my IAQ thermostat and sealing air leaks, so I know we can do better!
