It’s been a turbulent last six weeks and Christmas was a pretty sad time but life marches on and, despite our situation, the house construction progressed. Inside, electrical and plumbing was finished, boards hung followed by mud and tape and painting started. Outside soffit and siding was completed along with some work on well connection and perimeter drains. We also saw the cedar siding on the tall sections nearly finished which helped to blend the house into the landscape a little. The main things left to do, other than landscaping, include door installation, painting, trim and sills, install kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities then finish electrical and plumbing. We’re nearly there.
