Over the past week and a half Bonnie has been busy. While I was crewing for a two man team doing RAAM she was working hard getting us closer to our goal of living in the addition by the time school starts in September. Today we finished up the deck steps and bench seat. The area in front of the wing wall is the seat that is hinged at the back so we can store deck stuff in it. When totally finished it will have cushions on top.

We had a big day today. We passed our drywall inspection! Now we can really start to make the addition part of the existing. Over the past several weeks we've started breaking through on the main level. It started with taking out a window.

Over our Spring Break we got a bunch done on the house. Just before break we passed our combo inspection which means we could insulate. Within a week we insulated the entire addition and passed that inspection as well. Next step drywall and knotty pine ceilings

Bring on the insulation, WE PASSED INSPECTION! Today we passed our big combo inspection for rough electrical, plumbing and framing. With spring break looming we wanted to be ready to put in some full days on the house and make some real progress. Dave was great, he came over a bunch to help us be sure we were ready.

Winter finally camp to the hill this week. Our new house got its fist real snow storm and it fared alright. Today is also Lucy's last day of being the only dog in the house. This morning, Finn and I got her out for a last solo romp in the fresh snow.
