Heart and Stroke Ride for Heart

Hey all, I know we have been slacking, on the biking, and the fund raising, but Erin and I are both riding in the Heart and Stroke Ride for Heart this year.

Erin's Donation page is here

And my donation page is here

We would appreciate any donations, Heart and Stroke really is something that is meaningful to us, and I'm just not able to do it justice.

New Table & Counters

Bought a table by accident, the things you will do to avoid packing.
Not shown but it expands to seat 8, 10 squeezed.
Countertops installed

Exterior almost finished

We had our Pre Delivery Inspection on Friday, and everything is almost done.  We forgot the camera, and when we came back around later the door was locked, so I still can't show you the counter, but everything inside is pretty much perfect.  A few minor things, but they are being taken care of.  So here are the pictures I did get:
Exterior finally fully sided.

Railings added (deck still missing.)

Someone Else's Kitchen

Ten points to the person who first recognizes this kitchen

nb the fine view from the back, lush suburban greenery

Shower installed

So this images are a little bit 'steamy' not because the shower was running, but because I left my camera in the car over night and there was condensation on the optics (i know I know I'm a terrible person for doing that to a camera.)

Mmmmm showerlicious

The long awaited dryer vent

Its mate

The missing piece of drywall, and your monies worth on drywall screws.

Making slow headway on the packing front, certainly filling up my packing niches.

There is a cat in there... somewhere...

Floors and Fixtures

Lots and lots has changed just in one day, starting on the outside they did some work over the garage, so hopefully that means the rest of the exterior is coming soon (it just stalled a few weeks ago and I would like to see it done.)  Inside they installed the hardwood... all of it... one day... POW!  They also have wired all the fixtures (okay I didn't check the valiance lighting under the cabs, but the rest, done, one day POW!  They also did all the plumbing fixtures except the kitchen, one day, POW.  So interesting notes, compact florescent in all the fixtures, the bathroom lighting fixtures are all  much nicer then the light bars we currently have, and there is saw dust every where :)

Sorry folks tried to get this out last night, but I wasn't allowed.

Behold their mightiness, observe their lack of nobs and and plumbing and counter

Our Bathroom

Just love those stairs...

Hmmm I've seen carpet like that before... like in my current house...   Also you can't read it, but where the trim is missing it says "no support."
Starting to show the lighter tones and the varnish, picture is a bit washed out, looks awesome in person.
