Went down to Albuquerque today to pick up our gate that we ordered before Christmas. It turned out great!  Ill talk to the local welder to see when he can come up and install it.  Although we won't get an automatic opener on it until spring, we can put a chain on it and at least lock the site up again.  Since rental season, we have had to leave the gate at the bottom of the common drive open as there can be renters at any time in the house next door.


There were a couple other errands we took care of while in town.  One was to drop off the hammer drill for repair.  For some time, it takes coaxing to get the thing to operate somewhat close to what it should.  Now I've probably drilled 1500 holes with the thing so it has had a lot of use, but it's still under warranty so get it fixed.  I've got a lot more work for it.

And we hit HD as I needed more arc-fault breakers, and wire.  Hopefully that gets us where we need to be.  Arc-failts are almost $40 each and this makes 26 of them we've bought.  That doesn't include the 6 combination arc/ground fault receptacles that run $30 each.  Do the math.  Ouch!

We're making it through the electric little by little.  Most of the second floor cicuits are run.  Just the dishwasher and the mechanical room left indoors.  Third floor needs small appliance cicuits, pendent boxes above the island, and great room lights (all 12 of them). Fourth floor is done.  And the 12 smoke alarm boxes are nearly all in and wired together.  So the immense thing is close to being finished.  That feels good.

A little closer shot of the center figures. Not sure if it's clear but three cowboys on horseback, obviously, but one carries a snowboard, the other two-skis.
All wrapped up and somewhere to go
