Week 66

Jan 29 - Feb 4, 2012
Weather is starting to change at this point and I am getting urges.  Have to be honest, I have no desire in the evenings and I only really get things done if I have some time off work.  I have started to paint. Shame on you, what did you think I was talking about !!
Chose a light grey in the main living area.

Week 61 - Week 65

Dec 18, 2011 - Jan 28, 2012
Five weeks and not a thing has changed.  Christmas, winter and no one showed up.  I did try. Nice to take a break, anyway.  Oh, the plumbing is complete and we passed the final electrical inspection with the city.  That's a good thing.  Next is the electrical, so we wait.

Week 60

Dec 11 - Dec 17,  2011
Linda's counters were installed this week.  She went with a granite and I think it looks great.  Nice and big.  I like my kitchen but I don't have as much cabinet space and I am a little envious.

Week 57 - 59

Nov 20 - Dec 10, 2011
Nothing has happened these three weeks and is partly the reason why I hadn't updated regularly.  Not much to report. We have some things to do yet before the  last plumbing inspection. Winter is here and have spent time getting sorted out, a little unpacking, cleaning, trying to remember how to cook. Well, I remember how to cook just don't remember what to cook.  Can't remember how to shop either, still going to the store everyday wondering what I am going to have for dinner.  It is April now and I still haven't quite figured it out yet.

Week 56

Nov 13 - Nov 19, 2011
Little more work done in my laundry room.  I will tile the counter here. When? hahahaha

Week 56

Nov 13 - Nov 19, 2011
Guess what this bugger is doing.  If there is any sawdust or debris left in a pile, Lulu thinks it's just for him, either too lazy or trying to tell me something.  Had to keep a close eye on him and the mess since the beginning.

Week 56

Nov 13 - Nov 19,  2011
The last of framing required in the house is the basement.  We would like to get it insulated and boarded soon, but have to wait for the electrical.  The pot lights had been installed but some had been removed way back when we had failed one of our structural inspections.  Hard to believe I lived down here for so long.  Just proves you can get used to anything.
