Thanks so much for such a great book and great website. I really don’t think we could do this without them. My husband and I were talking about how we wished we had read the book 10 years ago and could now be building our “dream” (i.e. final) home with little or no mortgage! C’est la vie. I am teaching my girls about the “step-up” plan (they are 8 and 11!) and, if the law doesn’t change, I will encourage them to use your book to build up to their final home mortgage-free!

We’re sitting on the front deck looking at the smoke from a new fire. This one is about 13miles away and in the direction of the prevailing wind.  Not a good thing.  Small size now but as we learned on the fire a few weeks ago, that can change overnight.  We’ll see what happens over the next couple days.  


We’ve gotten most everything unpacked and put away.  There is a yearly garage sale/ benefit for the library that was fortuitous in the timing.  They are coming by tomorrow to pick up several pieces of furniture and a lot of accessories.  It will clear a large hole in the garage! And the truck iss loaded with all of the incorrect cabinet frames to take to the dump.  More space!  A lot of our time this past week has been spent on nesting.  Getting towel hooks, and various other things in to make it a home.  I did find time to set the rest of the prehung doors and only have two more barn doors that will get set once more hardware arrives.  Today I was back ripping aspen for door trim.  Sandra will need to sand and treat tomorrow so it can age and get lacquered before she heads out of town this weekend.

Shower glass is still in the crates.  I’ll begin to get to that shortly.  Ordered suction handles for it to make it easier to carry.  It is amazing how much glass weighs!

Lanscaper came back last week and together we got the picnic table set.  Fred Flintsone would love it!

And we had the driveway finished off with real gravel. Had them create a swail to carry off the rain.  They filled that with larger rock so it stays put but can be driven over.  I took the opportunity to lay conduit and wire in the swail with the 
Idea of getting more lighting out there as well as power for the eventual gate opener

So we’ve been busy with long days but the finishes are happening

Finished drive and parking. Nice to have real gravel, not the dusty mess we had before.
New fire. About 12 miles away. Hope they cN get it contained. Right now at 0%
New picnic table. The wind will have hell trying to blow this away

I hope they get that fire out soon, I am so sorry. That is scary.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed. Thanks! Got some rain yesterday near that area hoping that helps. 
How did the move go? Y’all settled in?

We still have lots of things to do (tile 2 showers, install 2 master freestanding tubs, work more on closets, do baseboard/trim, have home depot finish the kitchen, cabinets in laundry/pantry, finalize a lot of little details outside on the house, but we are slowly biting them off), but we have definitely slowed down. Happy to be in the house, and we know it will just take time to be fully settled. We joke (but are serious at the same time) that we hope to have the house (house only, not the yard) done by Christmas! Who did you say you used for your cabinets? I might look into those for the laundry/pantry because we could install them ourselves.

I understand about slowing down a bit! When the pressure is off it’s just natural, especially after working so hard up to this time.  We have company coming in August and then a bunch in October so we have to still get things at least a whole lot further.

But isn’t it great to be in your own place! :-)

Regarding the cabinet, if its just one, I’d just use Lowes as you are having issues with HD, and get one already assembled and just install yourself.  For the company I used, Conestoga, the shipping of a single cabinet will add $ and probably not make it worthwhile. But you can check and see.  They sell through a company called “The Cabinet Joint”
