Just a quick update about life around here lately. Our house addition is finally in the home stretch. We spent all weekend painting, finishing up the hardwood floors, installing the beadboard ceiling in the kitchen, and adding a little molding. We are hoping that this effort gives the contractors a jump on what remains: installing the cabinets and appliances, finishing the deck, and doing the trim. Oh, and the plumbers need to set the bathroom fixtures and sink, and the electricians need to finish the lights and switches.
Our hope is that the bulk of this will be done by the end of the week so that we can prepare a nice turkey dinner for the dozen or so family members descending upon us for Thanksgiving.
Keep your fingers crossed for us!
Pictures of the progress will be up soon.
