Things are happening, but I confess to having less patience because it seems glacial in its pace. I would like it all to be done now. However, I appreciate that the AWDB team is taking its time and doing things right! So yes – we will be patient. We’ve got about 3+ weeks to go! But here’s the progress we CAN see!

  • The sink and faucet are installed and working
  • The footers have been poured for the new patio
  • The crown molding is starting to go up
  • The fridge is in place!!! (Here was a headache that George, the über-carpenter had to solve: the older, narrow doors on this house meant that the doors and drawers had to be removed so that they could get the fridge inside. Note to self: remember that in future appliance choices in remodeling!)
  • The replacement baseboard is up in parts of the first floor.

Henry (main dude boss cat) has checked out the window overlooking the bird feeders and back yard and pronounced it good. I’m glad that is settled.

Next week the electrical box repair/heavy up should happen and the painters begin their prep. In the midst of that, our college girl comes home for Thanksgiving break, I have 3 days straight of on-call for  the holiday weekend, and we are negotiating how and where we will have Thanksgiving dinner. (For some reason, no one wants to come to the hospital with me and have a cafeteria food! Go figure!)
