Two meanings - one is that astronomically the days are getting longer the closer we get to the solstice. This is really nice, but it also tends to keep us working far longer each day, with all the extra daylight. Ten, eleven hour days up at the project are pretty common right now as we try to get things as ready as we can to move in. We definitely will not be finished, far too much trim to make that happen, but trying to get most of the messy things taken care of so it doesn’t make as much of a mess later.
Sandra has been powerwashing the decks and patio, and planted a truckload of flowers outside to spruce things up there. She’s been trying to keep up on weathering and lacquering the trim as I go ahead and put it up. I need to order more aspen and that will slow us down some as it takes a couple weeks to get it in.
I finally got the upstairs fireplace working again after receiving new parts from the manufacturer. I’ve got several Nest cameras to install today and connect to the phones.I don’t think that will be too difficult. Will go ahead and connect the thermostats to the phones as well now that we have internet. We received the barn door hardware and as I finish door frame trim, I can begin getting that in place and hang the doors. I’m thinking next weekend for the move having pushed that back a bit to give us time to get a myriad of little projects finished.
Oh, and it looks like shower glass, washers and dryers will arrive on Tuesday. The final pantry from the cabinet guys made it all the way to Albuquerque before Fedex lost it. Now how you lose an 8’ pallet, I don't know. I’m supposed to give them a call on Monday to see if they have found it. Arghh!
