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!

Since the weather here in Seattle has been awesome for the past 2 months and we know it’s just a matter of time before the big grey clouds come rolling in, we decided to go out for a quick camping trip and enjoy the last sunny days! Continue reading
