I Can Almost Taste It!

So much has happened this week that we can almost taste victory! It started off with passing our inspections!  The first thing we did was bought a cheap light switch and added it to the only functioning bathroom in the house.   For weeks before this, we had no light in the bathroom unless it was natural light or light from a lantern.  As a pregnant lady, I made many frequent late night trips to the bathroom using the flashlight app on my phone.  My sister was surprised that app was on my home screen "taking up space".  But I've got to tell you, since I've joined the world of smart phones, I still think that the flashlight app is the "smartest" thing it does.  My husband agrees and comments on it all the time.

One of our inspections was the insulation inspection.  As soon as my husband got the OK from the inspector, he wasted no time to get the drywall up.  Doesn't the dining room look so pretty with drywall and my exposed beam ceilings that I fought so hard to keep?  I comment on the ceiling every day to my husband.  I'm a happy lady.  We actually have walls!

Finally, the deck is just about done.  If you can tell, it's a pretty large size.  It spans from the dining room sliding doors and wraps to the master bedroom sliding door on the right.  Both Diego and Qori have already started enjoying running around on the deck like chickens with their heads chopped off!

And that friends, is construction life! - Shirley
