I was really glad I had purchased the book before I started. It really helped, especially since this was my very first house to own, much less build ourselves.

Finally after the third blower arrived, and it was tested before shipment, and it didn’t work, I delved deeper into the entire unit.  While I had power going the the motor, it still wasn’t coming on.  Dug around the wiring schematic and then looked inside, which wasn’t easy as things were hidden pretty well.  But finally [!] I saw that the neutral wire was not connected to the receptacle for the motor wire.  After several minutes of squirming one hand and arm, then the other trying hard not to slice either on the sharp edges, I was finally able to connect it to the receptacle and voila! It works!  So much consternation for a simple issue.  Ok so no the front sections of the hood cabinet are on and we are waiting for cabinet lighting to arrive so I can install it and set the crown moulding.


Second level stove arrived and is installed {it is soooo ugly.  Sandra has laid down the law that I will not order anything that is visible ever again}.  But with that set I was able to call out the propane company to come out, check everything and then they can call for an inspection.  They had a couple of comments which I took care of in short order and am ready for the inspection.

I have been focusing on the stair railing as we work towards a CO.  Headed to Santa Fe to pick up some more doug fir for it.  Not everything is intuitive until it starts getting laid out.  I originally had the top board higher than it is now.  On certain sections, I will use 2x8’s instead of 2x6’s to keep proportional look on taller section sections.  I have a bunch of steel tubing and angle coming Tuesday for the intermediate rails that will have to be welded or brazed together.  Get to try my rusty skills out.

Granite guys come out to install on Tuesday as well, and half the doors should arrive next week. In the midst of all of this, Sandra created a punch list for the fourth floor.  I love punch lists as it helps my A,D,D self complete the miriad of little things that don’t take long to finish, but for which I always have an excuse to put off doing in the name of getting other things started.

Kitchen hood finally near completion save for crown moulding on the top of it and surrounding cabinets. The crown will reach the ceiling and cover the vent pipe.
Another truck load of live edge wood. We traveled to Nashville to pick up what we purchased last Thanksgiving and bought another truckload as well.what shows on top here is a 2” thick slab of Cherry about 8’ long. It was an huge sum of - - $95 ;-)

Thanks much Amanda! Some days it seems like we’re close and others - seems like a lot more to do.  The light at the end of the tunnel now is the end, not a train though :-)
