Status Report – Details


That’s been a while, again..  We’re still here and keep working on things but really we’re down to details and progress is pretty slow.  We got baseboard and more trim, all fir and all of it needing a few coats of Benite and polyurethane so it takes a bit of time to get it ready.  We also built our garden boxes to start growing our own veggies, wish us luck on that one..  Otherwise, we’re slowly working on details like lighting, shelving and other things that make a house a home 🙂

We’re also making sure to find time to enjoy the spring weather and sunsets in nearby Golden Gardens!

Status – Week 12/13; Moved!

Well, we moved! It was a madhouse, as expected, and really we should have waited another week but that would mean more rent, another month on our PODS rental and just more hassle so we figured we’d rough it out for a while.. Continue reading


Status – Week 10/11

Another bi-weekly post.  We haven’t been super-busy at the house since the drywallers have taken over and we’re just waiting for them to finish but we did have to move out of our rental and since Dibble isn’t move-in ready, we had to find another temporary place.. Continue reading
