Photos taken tonight, but not before the sun went down. My new next door neighbor happened by and delayed the photos. One is of the view of the back porch out the dining room window, and one is of the fun stuff; gas line, duct work for the air to air heat exchanger, and plumbing.

Front portal and back portal.

Big doings being organized for Thanksgiving, but not at my house! All the sisters, spouses, a nephew and his family will be here.

The contractors' contract states the house will be substantially complete by December 1. So I am expecting to be in late December or January. Brrrrr.

You are going to have to change the title from "My Proposed..." to "My New..." Hopefully you will be having your first Christmas in your new home. Cooking in your new kitchen is going to be such a joy. You must invite all of us for a New Year celebration. We promise to behave.

One for your new home to look down and protect all of you.


I love the views. Do keep us up to date.

Looking like a HOUSE! Of course I'm sure as soon as you and your stuff move in it will look like a HOME. So excited for you.

The exterior rigid insulation has been installed, most windows are in, the exterior doors installed, work is progressing on the fireplace installation and the 8 foot ceiling above the pantry, bathroom and laundry room. There has also been some drywall hung but that is a fluke. Coming up soon is the blown in cellulose insulation and a bunch of digging around the house. I will have gutters and 6 downspouts with catch basins draining into a 1200 gallon underground storage tank.

Photos are of the inside of the front door.
