We had a full house over Labor Day weekend, with the daughter from Denver, her boyfriend, a couple they are friends with and Tom, who is building across the road, and his son and a friend of his. It was a good trial run for having future visitors and rental guests.  All in all, it went very well.  I had just gotten a 36” griddle hooked up to house propane, which we used to cook breakfasts.  Wow! That thing is great and  makes it so easy.  Bacon, sausage, hashbrowns eggs any style and pancakes.  I felt like I was working at Waffle House.  Tuesday evening, we had people over for dinner and used it for scallops and shrimp.  Now I felt like I was working Benihana’s. :-)

But no joke it makes easy work of large amounts of food.

Went to ABQ to see off some friends who are moving :-( but that just gives us another place to visit in the future, right? 

So tomorrow it is back to work.  The fireplace is slowly coming along.  The new stone is heavier and doesn’t sit as flatly as the Eldorado brand did, so I set a few rows and let it sit till next day.  I set the stone on top of the outdoor fireplace, and am now working on the exterior thresholds which are getting a flat stone.  The thresholds are going along better than I expected.  I’ll started actually setting some of them with thinset and silicone tomorrow.

Once the thresholds are finished, I think I’m  for the final architectural inspection, no wait, teim around the garage doors.  That should be a pretty quick job. Maybe by the end of next week I’ll be ready for it.

It’s been raining every day for well over a week, and while that is great to keep fires at bay, it doesn’t help with getting the lumber to dry.  And everyone is starting to get tired of it. And the forecast is for more to come.  We’ll see what we can do about the wood.
