I am halfway through THE BOOK, and I am already rethinking some of my approaches.

Wow, a month without an entry.  You might think we have been so busy finishing up the details that we have not had time to journal... you'd be wrong.  Mike has been working on the floors, which are finally complete. He just finished the final coat of sealant this week.  The toilet is in and the grinder pump is working. Oh the joys of indoor plumbing. 

We also had the exterior retaining walls completed.  Which look fantastic but ended up costing more than we anticipated.  And we found someone to build the ladder to the loft.  Hope to have it installed within a week.

We are still paying cash for everything as we go along, but I have to be honest, the money ran out long ago.  About the time our progress slowed down to a snail's pace. I took a night job with the government to fund the final details. The list is below and I'm certain there are things we've forgotten.

Next Wednesday and Thursday should be productive. The plan is to:
- get all the doors re-hung upstairs
- Install the furnace room door downstairs
- Install the toe kicks under the kitchen and hall cabinets
- Install the quarter round
- Install the closet organizers

I've also been working on the possibility of purchasing our neighbors house and land.  He has had it on the market for a long time and recently reduced it drastically.  I would like to split off the back part of the land and then resell the house, but I've come to the realization that it probably won’t happen right now.  The timing is just not right. We still have our house that we are currently living in to sell.  Besides, we have a tough time keeping up with the 12 acres we have... tossing more on top may just be the straw that breaks our backs! If it’s still available after we get our house sold and some money freed up than we’ll look at it again. Otherwise… we’re good with what we GOT!
