Everything is moving quickly along on the house. By the end of the weekend the following was done:
Water connected (to our existing well), new pump installed.
Driveway re-graveled and re-graded. Including our driveway, where the ditch for the well connection was dug.
Baseboard trim, door frames, window frames placed and painted.
Interior walls and ceilings painted.
Doors painted (although not installed).
Garage door installed.
Fireplace surround and hearth completed (I have no photos of this because they just finished it today and I haven't been up to see).
Still to be completed: Cabinets and appliances, bathroom fixtures, closet hardware installed. Heat pump, propane tank (for the fireplace). Floors. Lighting fixtures. Switches, outlet covers. Finish coat painting. Exterior touch-up painting.
Our contracting supervisor tells us he wants to have everything completed, except the punch list, by the end of this month. We hope to close by Thanksgiving and move Dad in before the first of December. They're moving very quickly, perhaps a benefit to us of a poor economy--all the subs are eager to have the work.
Regardless of the reason, I'm glad it'll be done soon and we can move him in before Christmas. My brothers are both coming and we're looking forward to a nice family holiday in our mountain home.
