I was going to sell all the books Mark and Elaine sold to me, but they are too dog-eared and marked up :) Good resources!

Fireplaces that is.  The outdoor unit is finished and working, just waiting for stone to cap it.  That leaves the second level fireplace, ready for stone but it’ll take several weeks to arrive.  Originally they had told us it was carried in stock, so we had waited before trying to get it.  But as always, there is plenty of other things to keep us busy.


Sandra has been working on the second level doors while table and shelf projects sit and dry. With a short break in the rain, I turned my attention to going back to stucco around the window well window, and on the top of the retaining wall.  Before I could start the retaining wall though, I had to set post anchors, drilling into the concrete and using some of our leftover Simpson bolts to fasten them.  I’ve got one more hole to drill, for a power run outside. Then I think I’m done with the big hammer drill for some time.  It was one of the best $400 spent on the project.  Drilled close to 2000 1/2, 5/8 and 3/4” holes, 5-10 inches deep, several 4” holes with it and it still works like day one.

I started to clean my side of the garage as a break from working on the house.  It’s not a whole lot of fun, and I’m taking my time on it, but in a few weeks it might look like something organized.

Called for a permanent CO for Monday as well as a final.  Hoping to get the permanent even though not all the doors have handles since they are still being lacquered, but we’ll see.  The final I have no idea whether I’ll get.  Have no idea what they require to be finished.  As you know there is still tons of trim left. Speaking of which, I’d better get to some of that today.
