We've got a few months before we'll have to worry about him moving around on his own.
Plenty of time to buy those little plastic thingies to stick in the electrical sockets.
Starting to feel like home yet?
There were points along the way, where we questioned some of the design decisions and purchase choices we made. But now that we've been living there, we're very happy with everything. It's a very comfortable and pleasant place to be, and it's full of possibilities.
Mrs. Scotch loves the appliances, but I think my favorite is the radiant heat. There are no baseboards, or vents, or radiators, or banging/clicking/blowing. It's just nice and warm and not dry - all the time. We don't even adjust the thermostats, as the sunlight provides a natural heating boost during the day, and the house retains temperature super-well.
You need curtains.
We need many blinds, shades, and curtains, but have to wait until all the windows are painted. Fortunately, most of the windows look out onto our own property.
Until then I'm sure all the deer and squirrels are enjoying the show.
Our builder finally had time to come back and do some things we needed finished, such as putting the cupola on the garage roof. The weathervane has 3 pine trees on it (which has some significance to our area), but we realized that the N-S-E-W piece was not with the kit. Called the place we got it from, and since they didn't give us a box, they forgot to include it, but we paid for it. So it's being shipped to us.
Oh, and we're dog-sitting a pair of golden retreivers.
The pantry window is clearly the best part of the new house and the only thing worth talking about.
Also, that one retriever seems to really like that spot on the front porch. From the look of those pics he's been standing there all day.
Another thing the builder did was finish the inside of the pantry. He built two levels of wraparound shelves, and installed a butcher-block countertop that we picked-up. I'd show you a picture, but Mrs. Scotch is priming and painting the shelves, so I'll update when it's done. That should make Koop's day.
Ok, this may be a challenge but I know you can do it. Somehow angle your Bimmer so you can take the pic through the windshield, with the temperature reading in the foreground, through the pantry window, into a nice shot of the butcher block.
The pantry window is frosted glass, so that won't work.
This sounds like when George Costanza tried to eat a pastrami sandwich while he was having sex.
Now I want pastrami.....
Not exactly construction, but it was posted here originally. We were at Short Sands beach yesterday, and the ship is still visible. I included Penny as proof that I was there.
Did you play fetch with part of the boat?
No, but she may have peed on the hull.
