Today, I was seen skipping from the house. Skipping in my favorite insulated coveralls and work boots, covered in multiple warm layers, bracing for the typical 20 degree, mid- February upstate NY weather. Why...because today, I felt like major steps forward were made in progress of the house.
Last week, building and zoning inspections were done on the rough electric, plumbing, insulation and framing...green light to moving forward and that was exciting. Today, my contractors and I met with the bank's inspector and heard a lot of "wow, good work", "looks good" and "well done". It was so nice to sign paperwork to have everyone paid and move the project forward!
So, as I was leaving today~ although my contractor is heading to a much needed vacation to a warm and sunny golf course~ I had the numbers I needed for counter top measurements, interior doors I needed to order, the layout of the radiators and the boiler was already up on the wall in my new utility room before I left. I had a message on my phone for a flooring quote and my pellet stove guy was checking in with me to see if the stove was working well.
What is most exciting is that the "guts" of the project are almost done. Today, we started talking sheet rock, placement of cabinets and fixtures and I started seeing the light! So...pictures are from the spray foam installation...and even in an unheated house sitting at 20 degrees, it felt fairly comfortable. PROGRESS!
