Spent the morning today putting in two hose bibs through the brick wall into the basement where I have brought the main line into the house and running lines to them. Had to buy a big honking carbide bit to get through the masonry. I used freeze proof faucets that extended 12", but just barely were long enough to get through brick and double band joist. Made the final splice in the yard and turned the meter on, rushed back down in the basement to ensure no leaks. Great to have water after working on it for three months. Really thankful we had good neighbors who let us use theirs to mix concrete and wash paint brushes.

Filled in the trench, spread some grass seed and actually got to water it in! I'll repair the sidewalk tomorrow with - yes, more concrete. Didn't I say I was done with that?

Sandra put a first coat of stain on the front doors. They had been done in urethane natural color, kind of a golden color by the PO. The new color is a rich dark brown and really goes well with the house color. Then it was back up on the ladder for her as she does the soffits. Cassidy tilled areas for flower beds in the front. Now that we have water, the girls want to do some planting. Fall is a great time of year for that, and the plants can get growing while all the other stuff is proceeding.

I laid sheathing down in the dining room. The den was done yesterday, living room tomorrow. Between the heavy vacuuming before I lay the felt and sheathing, and covering up the missing flooring and holes that lead directly to the dirt basement, the house is becoming cleaner. You might not think so by looking, but I no longer look like I worked in a coal mine after a days work.

Got the sewer line run under the foundation and connected to the old clay line. I stubbed off a water line today into the downstairs bath while under the house, so we could think about installing a toilet. I may try to set that next weekend. Just studs and no walls for the bath yet, but hey, it'll save a trip.
