Since Peter has returned from Texas, we are getting back on track at our house. We have the electricians, plumbers, Elite builders for the siding, and flooring ready to go. Peter and I have been insulating the basement and drywalling. The basement walls all have to be covered for code restrictions. We have decided to go ahead and do the flooring and finish the ceiling after we move in. It is very hard to move furniture until we do the hardwood, tile, and carpet. So, that will be next.
Dean, the electrician will come and finish the job, including putting up the light fixtures. That will be very exciting. Peter will be doing concrete this week, getting ready for the siding and the front porch. It smells terrific in our house with the cedar wood in the house which will be used for the front porch. Lots happening.

We spent Spring Break in Lago Vista, Texas. My mother is in the process of getting her home ready to sell. Peter and I spent more than a week there enjoying the warm weather and working hard on the lawn, pool, cleaning, painting, and constructing. Now, back to work on our house.

This is what the house looks like with all our stuff moved in. Bicycles in the front bedroom, living room furniture in our bedroom, kitchen stuff pushed into the pantry shelves and drawers, and the basement bedroom full of clothes, beds, and bathroom stuff. The rest of the house still has scaffolding, tools, drywall, and wood!
