Flying Time

Boy how time flies - especially when you have a "deadline"!!! Winter is coming - yet again - as is family so we have been madly, and I do mean madly, working to get enough done so we can move in SOON! We are also scheduled to host our community Thanksgiving in our new home this year - so more pressure.

BUT - things are getting done! Here are some pictures of what has been accomplished the last month or so.

We finished the ceiling trim.

The fill coat of plaster is pretty much done on all the inside walls throughout the whole house!

Truth window.

For my birthday I decided I wanted to have flagstone installed in the kitchen. I first had to lay some adobes.

Then the flagstone was installed.
We are very happy with the way it turned out!

Office floor is done and drying.

And the dining room floor is done and drying as well.

Right before we started pouring the dining room floor (each floor requires two pours, 2" deep each) I decided that it was time to bite the bullet and purchase a cement (mud) mixer! Boy are we glad we did! We were able to pour the dining room floor in two one-half days of work. Something that probably would have taken at least 4 days mixing by hand! Needless to say, my body is VERY happy with this setup!
One of the reasons it took so long to decide to get one of these beauties is that I couldn't start the generator we had. We got a new generator that has an electronic start - yea! Now it will be easy for me to run the mixer by myself, if necessary!

Final electrical will start next week. Solar equipment will also be ordered soon so in the next couple of weeks, hopefully, we will have power. In the meantime, work will continue on the floor. We plan to start sealing the bedroom floor in the next couple of days.

Thanksgiving here we come!
