We went to the home this morning to measure for shades.  Not much happening on the front of the home, but the back deck seems to be just about done.

They have started laying down the hard wood flooring. The gas fireplace and mantel are installed; Lisa chose the Italian Marble for the fireplace mantel. Dan is standing in the “Study”, hope to be “working from home” in this room very soon.

We were finally able to walk around inside and take some pictures. The electrical is done, the walls are up, some of the doors are hung, and the wood flooring has arrived. Outside, the siding is done and the deck just needs stairs. Wow, it’s getting very close now.

Siding is almost done.  They have most of the deck built. I walked into the garage and the  wall is up between the garage and the basement. The furnace and duct work is installed.  Maybe next weekend we can walk around inside.

It’s Friday night and the weather report says rain the next couple days. Lisa and I thought we would go see the house this evening, even though the sun is going down.  They made great progress in 4 days. Amazing.

Today is Patriot’s Day, and I had the day off. At the end of the day, Lisa and I when to Kimball Farms in Lunenburg and then drove over to Gideon Lane to see how the roof work is coming.  The basement cement floor has been poured and cured. We were able to walk around inside the basement today.

Today is the day before Easter.  We have a lot going on today so we drove over to the home late morning. It was a beautiful day and the guys were working on the roof.  The house is moving along quickly.

The Lot before any site work. Most of this dirt is from the lot to the right. That lot was leveled to provide a walkout basement. I believe they have an in-law apartment.
