As always, more details at mackayhouse.blogspot.com. We're in the last six weeks now, hoping to move in on June 27th. Still no occupancy permit. Although the inspector seemed pretty lenient on the insulation inspection, it looks like he'll be a bit more thorough than I had hoped. So we'll have to be "pretty much done" before we call for the final inspection.


The cabinets are installed (except for a few fixes), countertops are in, plumbing is done - we have working bathrooms now! I've been working on finish carpentry for the last couple of months, and I'm probably about 70% done. Hired a mason to do the stone on the front of the house, and that's just about finished. The last of the light fixtures come in tomorrow and should be installed by the end of the week. Driveway and patio were poured last week. Shower doors were ordered and should be installed in the next week or so.

I'll be working on caulking and painting the exterior trim over the weekend, and still working hard at nailing up trim. The landscaper starts by building a retaining wall around our big window well next week (is a window well that takes 250 sq. ft. of stone really a window well?). I still have to figure out what we'll use to cover the foundation insulation. Once that is done, I think I'll be ready for the final inspection. 

The last few weeks will be a race to get the door hardware installed, trim varnished, and floors finished before the carpet goes in.
