It's all in the details

15 more sleeps till we're in our home and the countdown is on! Canucks? Canucks who? For us (I mean me) the only thing on my mind in moving into our home. But in order to do that Smallworks and the Purdy-Schatz construction company have been put into high gear.  There are still a lot of details that need to be finished before Smallworks can call up an inspector and get us temporary occupancy.

Over the last few weeks Smallworks has hooked us up...literally. We now have electricity, water and gas. Indoor and outdoor lights illuminate our cute little home day and night. With an installed and working toilet, faucets and a shower head too, we can now handle a whole host of human habits. Last but certainly not least, we have a hook-up inside and outside for gas. This means that our heated concrete floors and the gas stove are ready to work and our bbq can be connected for our future outdoor patio.

                                                             No more electrical cords!

Have you ever seen a more beautiful mechanical room?

On our end, I've spent the last week caulking just about anything with a crack. And when I wasn't sealing our home I was building a pony wall cap from scratch, cutting and stalling baseboards and finishing the tiling around the vanity. Brendon's taken his talents to the exterior and has been coating our beautiful cedar with an environmentally friendly oil protectant. We've even mobilized Barb and Roger and our windows are better for it.
