I just joined and am in the process of reading The Owner-Builder Book. This is a great book, and my husband has been trying to get me to read it for awhile. Basically, I was terrified of being an O-B, but now I can't wait to break ground!!!

Mike finished up the hard wood installation tonight.  We had enough to do the loft and about 15 boards left over.  That includes the bad boards that we were only going to use is we had too.  We spent another $117 on supplies which I think takes us to around $1,100. I will have to add it up. 

Over the next week the trim will be completed and we will be filling and cracks and knot holes plus adding the peg and screw details to the ends. Painter is already lined up to be in after the trim and we have the cabinets, which are pre-finished, so we will install them after paint is complete. 

We also had the gutters installed and work got underway on the driveway and sidewalk.  Driveway should be complete by end of day Monday.  Gutters wont technically be complete until we pick up the rain barrels and since the granite countertops are on the trailer I'm not sure when that will be.  I still need to get the bathroom linen closet and storage cabinets made... running low on funds and they may end up being added later or being an off the shelf item.  We've been so busy with the floors that I haven’t even gotten estimates.  Maybe next week.

And for Friends/Family…Summer had her first Gymnastics meet today, She took second in two events (yes there were more than 2 competitors... there were 4) and 4th in two. She got home and said, "What do I have to do to get first place? Tell me, I'll do it! I want the trophy!"
