Kari came home from her Americorps Assignment in New Orleans to spend a week with us for Thanksgiving. It was wonderful. Not only did we get some time with our girl, but she was an incredible help with finishing up the cottage. Kari caulked, painted, shimmed and glued-- so many of the finishing up, time-consuming jobs are done.
The steps are poly-urethaned. I love the blue side boards. I wasn't certain before hand, but when it was done I loved it.
|Bathroom with cabinet hung and cute little knobs on it.|
|The kitchen came out cute. I love the Corian counter.|
|I love the little soap dispenser on the left.|
We will fix them so they are on hinges later, but for now they will be OK. I took off the knobs and put on handles so we can wrestle them out better.
Our plan is to just push it up into the loft when not in use and pull it down when we want access.
Speaking of the woodstove--it looks like we finally have someone who can and will install it. He cut the hole in the ceiling Saturday and says he will have it installed by Tuesday.
Then there will be some ceiling repair when he is done, but at least it will be installed.
The carpeting will go in later in the week so once the stove is in and the carpet installed, the interior will be done!
Bob is building some retaining walls outside before the final grade is done and we still need a bit of vinyl siding put on, but other than that, we are good to go!
Bob has some time off at Christmas so we hope to spend some nights out there then.
