PROJECT DARKSTONE: Day 236

This, boys and girls, is a heater.

9-24 2

And these are ducts:

9-24 1

The heater guys came and finished in about 4 days, excluding all the stuff we needed them to change, which they will come and fix next week. Amazing.

What that means is that the only thing we are waiting on to get our inspection done is the plumbing and electrical work.  So if the plumber and electrician would  get to work already. . . oh wait.  RICHARD AND I are the plumber and electrician.  Darn.  I guess we better get on that.

Actually, Richard took the week off of work so that we could work at it full tilt.  We've got only two days left and a whole lot more to do so I should really quit blogging and get back to work!

I was going to show you what our to do list looks like now, but there is still so much left, it was just too depressing.  So here is a happy picture I will leave you with instead.

9-24 5

PROJECT DARKSTONE: Day 224

Things have been at a Virtual Stand Still the last couple of weeks.  We always have these flurries of activity followed by nothingness.  The mechanical guy was supposed to start this past Tuesday, but has Not Yet Started.  We predict we will see him next Monday.  Which is fine.  It is all par for the course in construction, I guess.  But it also means that when he says he will be done in a week, I'm pretty sure he means he will be done in two.

Here is what has happened since we last checked in:

Doors!



And also:

Siding!  Was delivered! Which is: Exciting!


It seems like such a little pile to cover the whole addition, but what do I know?

Here are some pictures displaying our electrical wiring prowess:


Each wire is color coded so that we know what it goes to:


We're just about at the point in our plumbing and electrical work that we can't do anymore until the heating ducts are all run. Yea!

Wanna see our TO DO LIST now?  Sometimes it feels like we're not making any progress because for every thing we cross off we think of something else we need to add on.
