A Quick Update

This is what I arrived home to see the other day! The driveway was full of vehicles!

Plumbers and Electricians and contractors, oh my!

Plumbers and Electricians and Contractors, oh my!

IMG_5516We found a plumber and his crew arrived en masse … and got the rough in completed in three days. Woo! Hoo! We are making progress! I was especially excited to see my tub in the guest bathroom upstairs! Thanks to Brian Bickford for the great and speedy job! And thanks to our friend Janna for the recommendation, too.

We are also all closed in! The last door and window went in yesterday. Staining the cedar shingles is happening … it’s supposed to look like driftwood. I like it. Ned not so much (yet.)

The stain will look like driftwood … hopefully

The stain will look like driftwood … hopefully! Do we call this the front door?

Today I went to check on the progress inside and it was all cleaned up! After the insulation went in, it was a mess!  A MESS! (Did I yell it loud enough?) This afternoon it was all clean! Matt wins the golden broom award for cleaning up! I was shocked at how nice everything looks.

Tomorrow when I am in Bangor at a quilting class, Ned’s going to finish staining the top half of the front (lake side) of the house and then the framing for the front porch can happen while the sheet rockers are inside working. Monday we call for our inspection.
