This week, it was all about the inside, again. On monday, we walked through and looked at all the little things that needed to be done before the sheetrocking started, and they also loaded the house with the rock, so that they would be ready to go first thing tuesday morning.

This week, it was all about the outside..... The boys started on monday morning putting up the siding. They worked (mostly) all week going around the house and putting up the lower half of the siding. The final 2 windows were installed, and they also put in the dog kennel door, and finally, on friday, started working on the front door. (didn't finish, though, it WAS friday, after all). They said they'd be back today to put up the big gable ends and possibly finish the front door. We'll see. It IS saturday after all...... this chair and MUST have it. Next week......SHEETROCK!!! Front door, utilities (?), more siding, and possible a garage door.

This week, it was all about the electricians again. They continued to pull wire and add boxes for switches and outlets. They hit a bit of a snag, though, with the SIP panels. It seems it's kind of a pain to run wire through styrofoam. Who knew. It slowed them down for a bit, but they're back at it now and 99% of the interior wiring is done, the service panel is in and the outside wiring is coming along nicely. Now we're just waiting for the electrical inspector. He was supposed to be here thursday, then friday....maybe monday? The electrical inspection has to pass before the plumbing, framing, and HRV can be even considered for inspection. Looks like the sheetrocking will have to wait a while......

This week, it was all about the electricians. They started in full swing on monday and pulled miles and miles of wire. leather couch from Bassett, that'll be here in about 8 weeks, just in time to move in. (fell in love with a 8x10 rug too, but ran out of time to go get it) So, next week, inspections on tuesday, possibly sheetrock beginning on wed., the solatubes will be installed at the beginning of the week. Not sure what comes after that...we'll just have to wait and see.
