A Reno Tale

Two years in the planning and we have FINALLY started.

What week is it? I have no idea.

YES, it has been sometime since I last posted something and have been pestered by a few folks.  I took a vacation.
The last I mentioned was that I was off to house sit for 3 weeks while the drywall was to go in.  It was lovely there and the cat liked it too. Didn't take either one of us to adjust to the new digs and it was good to just forget about the house for a bit.
In a nutshell, not much has gone on since Gabe left.  It is now April and no drywall in sight.
In Week 18 the engineer, well not the engineer, an assistant of sorts, failed us on our structural. Should have known that would happen, as Will was proud of the fact he had never failed on structural and he should never had said it in the house.
Week 19 the engineer disappeared and turns out he went out of town or something so we were twiddling our thumbs till he got back to us in Week 22.  Will got to work with the fixes he wanted and called for another inspection in Week 24.  Failed again!  Just a few little things that took Will no time and WHEW! We passed in Week 25. About all I can say is, if there is ever an earthquake, my house is the place to be. This house 'ain't' ever falling down.
We are now currently in Week 26. On Monday the city came in and we passed with flying colours. Today is Wednesday and insulation is going in as I speak. I am not saying anything about drywall, don't want to jinx things.  The plumbers are here tweaking a few things and work was still being done at 7pm.
So on with the show!
