I don’t think so! We get amused when someone new comes by to look at the house and then says “But you have so much more to do!”, especially when we tell them we are moving in, in a couple weeks. Yes there is a fair amount of work left, but coming from where we started, or from where we were just a couple months ago, we see it as maybe 2% of the work left to do. The flooring will be finished by sometime tomorrow and doors will be ordered for the second floor. Sandra’s nearly done with staining the stairs. Beams in the kitchen will go up on Tuesday as I have secured a couple more people to help. Backsplash can be started, and then the kitchen is done!
A friend across the road who is also building arrived back in town for a month to get more done on his house. He is dried in and has my stone guy staining and putting stone up. When he saw where were-he was amazed! He understood the building process unlike most other people. He had seen the house bare and devoid of stucco, stone, sheetrock, paint, stairs, decks, railings and landscaping. He appreciated where we were and how close we are to the finish line. Those that haven’t seen the changes or been involved in their own build, just don’t understand the effort and time that goes into building. So when it happens to you that they think you have so far to go, don't get discouraged, just be confident in yourself, look back at pictures of the process and you can assure yourself you have come a long way.
