The last unsided sides

The last side, as it turns out – these last little unsided bits are all that remains of the siding – and when the siding is installed, the exterior is (minus paint) finished. A huge milestone, we think.

Phase one of the electrical is done, too – all the boxes and wiring are in place; he’ll come back when it’s time to add the fixtures.


And the plumber was here today too, adding lots of pipes that run from the basement up through this living room wall to the second floor bathroom, and – OMG IS THAT REALLY….

OMG bathtub

It is! Remember, Sonya’s one wish for this project was to have a bathtub in the house, and now we have one.

Her face got very bright when I showed her this photo. “Can I just look at this a little longer?” she asked.
