Weekly House Update-Week 18

Drywall will be complete today which means paint tomorrow! The crew has been hard at work taping, mudding, cleaning, and texturing the ceilings and it looks awesome. They will be sanding all the walls today and doing one last round of cleaning and then heading out. We also got electricity, water, and gas hooked up this week. Mike and his dad have nearly finished the fireplace pipe and also put scaffolding on the front of the house so they can put up the porch ceiling soon. The brick we ordered came out a little darker than it should have so the brick company has been out this week picking through all the thousands of bricks and pulling out the dark bricks to replace. Lots of tedious work. The mason will get started on Monday. So, let’s work our way in. The view of our house as you come through the trees will never get old to me.
