I posted  pictures of the kitchen island some time ago. The first iteration was too big. It was the right size for the island but I forgot to account for the overhang so it was 1.5" to big all the way around. It has been a while, and I always was stuck doing something else but I finished it today. I also hung the bi-fold doors in the closet and trimmed them, fixed the bad door and the trim guy fixed the casing. I finished the counter support for the computer center, and trimmed the remaining doors in the closet. Another 12-hour day, but I feel like I got a bit accomplished working all by myself.

The painters started caulking all the trim today and should finish on Wednesday. This was something I wanted to do myself, but I am at that point I think we all get to where I just want it to be done and contractors are much more affordable now.

The septic tank is in and one of the pits have been dug. The septic company usually leaves it at this point until paid. The bank only pays once the certificate is received from the county. Since the last draw is already gone, I submitted for the next draw tonight. The sequence that the bank wants me to follow is not quite the way I have it organized; so even though we are out of draw 5, draw 6 should hold us over until possibly the end and we still have 2 draws to go. I have the roof finished (draw 7), tile nearly complete (draw 8), and the painting will be finished Wednesday (draw 7).

I think that is it for now.

Septic pit, the sides caved in some about 8-10 feet down. Just like when we dug the basement. It looks like abc with more sand. It should be plenty porous.

2,500 gallons?! That will hold a lot of poo.

It'll look way cooler when the wainscoting is on.
