1/21/11 WE HAVE A ROOF

We have a roof.  There has been lots of visible progress these past few days.  The basement plumbing was put in and we are waiting this afternoon for the inspection.  Once we get the OK on the inspection, the cement flatwork will "happen" in the basement.

Last week HD (Home Depot) has a special on the interior doors we wanted, Jeld Wen Santa Fe.  If you bought hollow core doors, you were upgraded to the solid core for free.  We like FREE.  We were going to go with the solid core doors, so this was a great savings. Stan at PG said great deal, go for it.  He reviewed our HD door order and we said go.  Of course this will be the one time that HD gets our order in on time, next week.  We certainly aren't anywhere near needing our interior doors, but for a free upgrade we'll put them off on the delivery for as long as we can.

So yesterday a new HD paper comes out.  This time they have a bunch of "special buys" on bath vanities.  So this morning, Mike and I head to HD to check out the "deals".  Of course we find a vanity for the 1/2 bath, $549 for $199, and a 36" vanity for the lower level bath, $499 for $199.  We love savings. 

So now I have to be sure to watch all the HD, Lowes and Menards flyers.  But we don't get the Menard's, so I'll have to sign up for theirs by email.

Joan, our kitchen designer, is working on those plans and elevations.  Once she gets them to me, I'll post.

This is the entry from the garage into the laundry/mud room.

Progress is moving along.  We have a roof.  Great that much less snow to go into the house.   The sun is shining, but it is cold.

Here is a view of the front of the house and looking past to the lake. 

Here is Tim Master of Everything.  Go Tim Go!!!!  He doesn't even look cold, wait maybe he is frozen in place.

Here is another view of the garage and front entry.
