Two weeks ago my husband rented a trencher from a neighbor so we could lay the conduit from the house to the electrical pole on the road. I was excited for him to be working on it, that was until I realized we were going to have to dig the last few inches out of the hole! The whole was 4-5 inches wide and 39 inches deep. We spent a day and half doing this and it was miserable. On top of it being crappy work, it is also getting hot here (in the 90's that weekend). We got the conduit it and then we failed our electrical inspection with the electric company twice.... we had to dig more by the pole, add some bolts, pull the mule tape. Finally we passed with the electric company, then the county came out this week and they passed us also. Now we are waiting on the electric company to give us a date they will connect us. I was hoping it would be this week. We went spent a few hours this last weekend working on siding. We are getting so close, we just need to buckle down and get it done, but once again it has been hot and we have been getting burnt, so we get tired and decide to move to inside tasks :) We got all the vanities installed. Home depot and their subs have been a bit of a nightmare with the kitchen cabinets. We are waiting on a broken piece and an additional cabinet we had to order to fix the island. Counter company came out and measured last week and they should be ready to install late next week, so hopefully the cabinet people can get themselves together. We spent a full day hanging electrical fixtures (fans, can lights, vanity lights) I felt like we got a lot done that day. My cousin is helping us with the electrical panels, I am not sure how far along he is but the hubby said he had made good progress. We spent the morning at home depot on Monday (I have been taking days off here and there to try to get more done) and we picked a flooring (vinyl planks) for the loft and tile for the showers. We started the installing the loft flooring and are about 25% complete. We want to get this done this weekend so the wrought iron company that did the stairs can come install the railing asap. We are going to give our 30 days notice for May month end to be out of our rental. I am a little nervous, but things we need to focus on this weekend are finish installing the loft floor and work on electrical outlets/fixtures. I will try to be better about taking pictures this weekend.

Your house is looking great! I think you have done more of the work than us and I think yours is quite a bit bigger ;)
