I have the POWER!!!!!

So check it out...
This is our old power meter,
and this is the old gooseneck where the power came into the house.
Here is our new power meter,
and here is the new gooseneck where the power comes into the house.
And here is David throwing the switch for the first time!

YAHOO! Power... in the addition.

Flooring samples...

So we got our flooring samples in. We ordered 8 hardwood samples and 7 bamboo samples.

Here are the winners:

It is the Super Saltillo with rounded edges and the Stained Strand Woven Bamboo Floors.

We knew we would go with the saltillo, but it was nice to see the sample. It was a tough decision on the wood flooring, but it came down to two things. The bamboo flooring is very hard, which is a must with four dogs. It is also a green resource, which appealed to us.

I'll let you know if we make any more decisions.

Long time no post...

So sorry it has taken me so long to post. Please forgive me. I'll try to do better in the future.

We've made some good progress on the outside of the house.

Here are some pictures of the siding. It is so close to finished!!

The soffit is going in, and really finishes off the eaves.

This is what David is working on now: concrete board in the bathroom. It is hard to take photos in the bathroom, so you'll have to imagine the rest of the room.

Yeah!!! Not far now, Papa Smurf!
