9-20 Update

Last week we got the driveway and the top soil distributed. This week we got a garage door, the siding completed (Todd put the last piece on Friday night), gutters, outlets and temporary lights, attic insulation, the last exterior door and the furnace hooked up to the well and the electricity. I didn't get a ton done but the progress on the house was great.

New stone-crete drive, we have still had a couple people get stuck, but not to the point of needed pushed or pulled out This is where Todd has spent his evenings this week. The three older girls and I have helped when we could. Todd just came in to tell me that the ceilings in the main floor have real ceiling paint on them. We need one more gallon of primer for upstairs, then the color starts! Yeah! This is the lane back to the barn. The stone-crete isn't as deep, but makes the path drivable. It winds around the septic field and ends outside the barn.
We still have retaining walls to build, but painting takes priority so other things can get done.
Another bonus, this afternoon Fred (an old neighbor and fishing buddy) dropped off a Kerosene heater for us to barrow so crawling out from under the covers when it is 55 degrees in the barn won't be so painful.

Wow, I'm amazed. I haven't checked your blog in quite a while. It's looking great. Can't wait to see it in person.
