Week 9: More inside work and a new toy

Well like I thought Week 9 has no pictures.  I was at a conference all week and couldn't get over to the house at the end of the week.  What did happen was the concrete sidewalks, step, and porch were poured, and the asphalt driveway first coat was laid down outside.  Inside, the second painting was done (just a hint of neutral color throughout, a RH district thing), cabinets and countertops are complete, and the tile work is all done.

Honestly I was a little surprised about the asphalt because I never got a call from my PM about where our pipe chase under the driveway was supposed to be, and of course it didn't get done.  The only thing I had in mind was the invisible dog fence, but I think we may be going the wrought iron look in the backyard anyway.  The more important pvc special work (pipe chase) got done inside, so no big worries unless anyone has an idea that I forgot.

In other news, at the conference I won a Microsoft Surface RT Tablet with Touch Cover at a vendor booth.  I'm actually typing up this post from it, and so far so good.  The keyboard spacing takes a bit more to get used to than changing laptops due to no large bumps on the cover, but I'm starting to get the hang of it.

Week 10 we will actually be able to go inside and take a look around.  Finish electrical is on the list as well as some touch up trim work and possibly some final plumbing, porch work, and other flooring.


  1. Congrats on winning the tablet! I can't wait to see pictures from inside the house.

    1. Thanks! I'll probably have that week 10 post (and be caught up AGAIN) tomorrow. Definite progress inside!

  2. Congratulations on the new toy! Whoo too!
