Today, is we are out of the house day!
I have to meet the builder at the granite place to pick our slabs. Then, head over to the stone place to pick the hearth stones.
Lunch with Dad
Then I need to stop by the library and Joanns on my way back since we tend to bunch errands when going into town. If you are going to drive an hour to get somewhere, you better stop at all the places you can.
Right now with the house:
1. The masons are continuing their work. The brick is almost done, but there is a considerable amount of stone work to be done on the outside of the house as well as inside. Stone is going on the fireplace and the island, the outdoor kitchen and around each cedar post on the patio.
2. The Tiler has finished putting tile in the kids' bathroom showers, and is working on ours right now. He is about 1/2 way done. We picked grout colors yesterday.
3. The Garage/Shop is slated to go in starting on Thursday. We had to move our RV last night - that was fun. The fridge had been left on and the battery ran out, but that was nothing compared to the mosquitoes! They are crazy bad - I had deep woods off on and they still were attacking me. They attacked the truck as it pulled in! 2 things I am looking forward to - 1) a pond to collect the excess water with fish to eat the mosquitoes. 2) Chickens to eat the bugs as well.
That is about all that can be done right now! We are waiting for the cabinets to get in before we can do anything else.
I cannot wait until we can start moving forward with this - I know we are, but we have been in tile and brick land for weeks. I am ready to start seeing it take shape. It still looks like a bomb went off inside.
I am trying to think of something for dinner. We did not set a menu this week and we are hurting for ideas. I have plenty of food so I will think of something.
Hope you all have a great day!
