I know it's been a while since I gave you a house update - but be assured, it is still in progress! As I type this, there are brick-layers, heating and air dudes, electricians, vinyl-siding dudes, and other laborers crawling around our house. The most exciting part is actually seeing brick ON the house, instead of in little bundles AROUND the house. See what you think: There's a lot more on there now, so hopefully I will be able to show you a completely-bricked house by next week! Also, the siding, roofing, and insulation are scheduled to begin, weather providing. The front door was installed, but not yet painted - and I think it will look good with the overall theme of the house:I spent weeks documenting the careful construction of the home - everything tightly woven together in an elaborate symphony of wood and concrete. Now? Well, it seems like everyone is poking holes in the structure and sticking things inside. Like a near-death patient in the ICU, my house has all sorts of pipes and tubes and devices thrust into it:"Nurse! I need a large bole IV in this dryer unit....STAT!" "Okay, let's check the pressure...looks to be stable, but keep the monitor on, in case we go into V-Tac and need the paddles..."
And check out this behemoth of a heating and air unit, under the house: Talk about a MONSTER. Hope it doesn't blow us into the stratosphere....but then, look at the ductwork: Wow....impressive, yes? There will be another unit to cool our bonus room. Now that the windows are installed, I had to take a photo of the front porch...and...hey...wait...what is that...down the way? WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!? Oh no...first order of business?? C'mon.... Yup, that's The Offspring, trying out her "sneaking out" techniques, first thing. Can you believe it?
Looks like she has it down pat. Here's a peek at some of the can lights in our living area...ceiling fans to come!
Stay tuned for more updates! And don't forget to check on Julie's house for her progress - something tells me she will be moving in soon!
