All those visions of having the house finished and immaculate within a couple of weeks were rather unrealistic! I am still surrounded by cardboard boxes and unpainted walls. Picking away at putting up shelves and sorting through stuff. And doing the finishing on woodwork etc. And then the snow hit and we had the first [...]]]>

So close! The house is nearly done. The propane tanks are in place and the cook stove hooked up. The plumbers have been working hard yesterday and today and we have water available.

The kitchen, living room and bathroom are floored with porcelain tile. Mike Gale, Sr assisted his sons with the tiling. The rest of the house is done in laminate flooring. It looks good, is hard-wearing and easy to clean! With 7 cats this is very important. ]]>
