The stone guy, who also does tile, staining, painting, carpentry etc etc, put in as much of the kitchen ceiling (t&g Aspen) as he can for the moment.  We have to set the bath tubs before he can do anymore because we need access below the tubs to connect the drains.  Tubs can’t get set until the wood floors go in underneath them.  That will be a while as we are just getting ready to order the flooring, all 6000 ft of it.  Trying to get the cabinets ordered as well to get them delivered before the snow gets so bad we can’t get them up the drive.  We are running against the clock now.


Meantime, the mechanical guy hasn’t come back as he promised.  Need to get him out.  The propane tank been delivered, buried and connected to the house.  Another call to him tomorrow.

Rained tremendously while we were  out of town so landscaping has not gone anywhere. Finally drying out and should be good this coming week for him to get moving.

Sandra’s finishing the last of the painting and cleaning floor by floor.  Between the spray paint dust and the sawdust from the kitchen ceiling installation, it was pretty dirty.  But she’s doing the windows too, getting them all spruced up after painting.  Starting to look like a home in some ways!

I’ve been trying to clean up ouside before snow comes.  Got rid of the OSB we used for temporary decking.  The sheetrock hangers never took it, so the stone guy took a bunch, and I took the rest to the dump.  Guy there ended up taking it.  That’s great as even though it was pretty waterlogged, it’ll be ok for simple stuff once it dries.  Got the cinders for the drive transferred from a rusty barrel to a 90 gal plastic garbage bin so it’ll be ready for winter.  The rest of the roofing scraps, stone scraps all gone.  Just need to lift a couple of pallets of stone up to the third floor for the fireplace and the outside will be pretty cleaned up.

Today I started on making the deck railing sections.  The first one took quite a while as I tried to figure out a look.  But from then on, it’s not a difficult job.  Just will take a long time as there are nearly 1500 holes to drill for the balusters.  There are about 60 sections to make.  Oh well, just something that will get done.

Friday the installers came with the car lift!  But- they lost some anchors on the drive up and while they got it up, they didn’t finish.  Will be back sometime this coming week to finish, but it looks great! Can’t wait to get to use it.  

All of the ventilation ducts and water heater vents are finished in the attic. The blow in insulation will go in Tuesday so the house is getting buttoned up. Still need to get seals around the garage doors, but it’s coming along.  If we can just get the mechanical guy to finish the furnaces, we’ll shortly be ready for winter.
