Since I’ve last updated you, a few things have happened at the house.
The huge hole in the backyard got filled.
We are going to have a lot of landscaping to do next spring.
The basement wall was finished.
And the ceiling was braced to attach the foundation wall to the floor above it.
The holes in the floor were filled.
The electrical box is still hanging away from the wall. At some point we will have to have an electrician come over and get it back against the wall. No hurry on that, though.
The hot water heater and all the plumbing needs to be reconnected.
The flooring was put into the front room and the entryway.
The countertop was put onto the vanity. The hole still needs to be cut for the sink, which I hope will be installed early next week. But I love the way it looks with the paint color and the tile on the floor.
I don’t see how we can possibly get into the house by December first. That is Wednesday! We still don’t have a sink, toilet or any plumbing. The rest of the flooring needs to be installed. I’m hoping for the 10th, or so.
In other news…
I was helping Jaden with his ‘homework’ the other day. He was practicing writing his name. He still gets confused about which way the hook goes on the J and he has a hard time with the ‘e.’
