House update

Work continues at a fair clip. On Monday and Tuesday the rest of the drywall got hung and they started plastering over the seams. When they finished hanging drywall in the great room, they installed the tongue-and-groove ceiling (another view here).

Meanwhile, the piping for the radiant heat was run upstairs and tacked down on Tuesday. It should be inspected today, and assuming that inspection doesn't turn up any problems, the concrete floor will go in tomorrow. I don't know how long that will take to cure properly but I would guess that no more work will happen on the second floor until next week. Last and not least, the wall for our courtyard has been built.

There are more pictures in this gallery for those of you following along at home.

Meanwhile... the saga of Access To Our House continues. A big deal was made about how the house is going to be locked up now so that noone (including us, it seems) can get in casually. When willowisp visited late on Tuesday afternoon to see how things were going, she found the front door closed but not locked, the patio doors in back wide open, and the garage door wide open. So much for access control, huh?
