Got the final plumbing inspection today! So only the final building inspection to take place. To get that, I need to finish the stair railing, which I'll get done tomorrow. Actually, rebuilding the old railing wasn't nearly the pain I had expected. Just took it one step at a time. The only thing I'm unclear about is what the height should be. I'm using the original height and hope it flies, even though it seems a few inches low. I'll call tomorrow for an inspection that should happen next week.


Todd and I spent several hours this afternoon running concrete for the back deck landing and the steps leading up from the street. We had been planning to get a truck of mix ready, but turned out we only needed a yard and a half. Truck minimum was three yards and a $100 delivery. So we had HD drop off a pallet plus of 60-lb. bags. Really wasn't too bad and better than trying to negotiate the yard, fences and gates with a full load from a truck. With the cool weather, curing will take a while. Normally I'd consider walking on it the following day, but I think it'll be more like two or three, and a week to remove the forms. We did leave the sidewalk for tomorrow as the dog needed an area of the yard. What we did today should be fine for him to walk around on it, and we'll open the backyard for him again.

Kids have the stereo connected and ceiling speakers are working. Bookcases need finishing and I've cut a bunch of trim for it. A few other odds and ends and some general unpacking of stuff in the dining room, but things are really near the end. 

A set of ladder racks came today for the trailer. I need to get them on. Maybe over Thanksgiving. Have very little working time left. Thanksgiving weekend will be time off, the following weekend the kids are having a housewarming party and the weekend after that Sandra and I pack up our apartment and leave on the following Monday with the trailer of tools and clothes, bound for Angel Fire and the Last Rodeo. So my punch list needs to get completed really quick. Wow! I'm already having mixed emotions. Sadness, happiness, excitement, apprehension, relief and several more.
