The countdown begins

We got a new schedule from our contractor. 7 added weeks. But at least we have a timeframe that seems reasonable. What complicates things is Grace moving back in before things are done. Her bedroom is also the kitchen, so she’s going to get woken up early every morning, and I’m going to lose my quiet room. Tensions will rise.

As you can see, we’re going for a sort of Arts and Crafts look. My dream is to love in an Arts and Crafts design bungalow. That will probably never happen, but at least I can try to evoke it in our decor.

Apart from that its been a time of roughing in. Electrical:

Something a bit more pretty is the siding which is almost finished in the back:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They’re putting in the insulation, which mean drywalling should start soon. Dust central! But things will begin to look nicer.
