|2004 the beginnings of our outhouse!|
The dishwasher needed a certain kind of adapter. The plumber didn't have it--then I remembered that Lowe's sold me one back in February when I got such a great deal on a Kitchen Aid, stainless steel interior dishwasher. I ran down to the barn, quickly found it and then huffed and puffed back up the hill. I was amazed I could find it so fast after all that time and with all the furniture in the barn waiting for completion of the cottage.
Here is the laundry tub with faucets. However, I would not recommend that you buy this type of all-in- one-tub from Lowes. The faucet will not let one drop of water through it. UGH! The plumber said he saw another of this same type do this.
So, I need to take the faucet off and get a replacement. He will install it when he comes to finish the sink in the kitchen. [Still waiting on the counter top to be installed so he can put the faucet and drains in.]
They will come tomorrow and install it. I pray all the bits and pieces that they need are in all those boxes in the basement.
After they got it in place they got out their binoculars and tried to spot some deer. As they were moaning that they couldn't see any, the plumber told them he saw five on the hill this morning while he was sitting in his truck waiting for me. They were jealous.
Tomorrow is another big day. Besides the wood stove guys, the HVAC guys come early morning to finish hooking up the heat pump and installing the heat/air vents.
The finish carpenter comes in the morning. He has a few things to do to finish up the trim and loft area.
The painters come for a consultation in the morning too. We need them to polyurethane the oak steps, hearth and a few other things and, we just realized, the paint is just primer--not the finish coat. So, they will have to give us an estimate on that. I spackled a ton of holes and don't mind painting trim, but now way are Bob and I up to painting cathedral ceilings. Ugh!
