We got the final inspection this morning. Same fellow that had given me some problems with the first framing inspection and fire blocking. This time he had no issues other than an additional handrail which he let me slide on. I think the look of the house and finish quality helped, not only here but in the plumbing as well. Both inspectors were pretty impressed and ended up doing more cursory examinations. Not that we had anything out of place.
We are home free! We'll get to the log mantles today, Todd was going to remove the forms on the concrete, Sandra and Cassidy are arranging and cleaning for Thanksgiving company that begins arriving tomorrow. It's all coming together for first Thanksgiving in the house. I've got to run by HD and pick up a sheet of plywood for a dining table as they don't have one yet, but just one more memory for the holiday.
Sandra and I have something great to be thankful for --- we are clean with the city, and we are done with the project!!!!
I'll post some final pictures after the holiday. Maybe some before and after shots to remind everyone where we started. I know I forget how far we have come in the past 17 months. This elephant was big, but we finally got it eaten, one bite at a time.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
