Well, I haven’t been a very good blogger lately! I just looked and it has been 22 days since my last post, whoops! There has been lots happening at the house, I’ve just been too busy to post anything!
The boys have been hard at work installing the trim and it looks great! I’m so glad we went with a simple and classic trim that works really well with our large windows. The downstairs windows have beautiful birch sills that are stained the same colour as the kitchen cabinets and the upstairs windows are painted in the trim colour.
We also have a beautiful tiled shower now in our master bathroom. I cannot wait to use it!
The electrician has also been in and we now have electricity in the house! Most of the light fixtures are up and the plugs are working. Just a few more things to go for electrical. I was surprised at how much more “homey” the house felt when I could walk in and turn on a light!
Probably the most exciting part lately for us has been temperature. Specifically, what I mean by this is the temperature differential between inside and outside the house with no heat on. Last weekend we went over to the house; the temperature outside was -12 and the temperature inside was 15!! That’s a 27 degree difference! With NO heat! Love it 🙂 Anyone who has come over to the house has been surprised with how warm it is in the house especially without having a constant heat source. Our super insulated, air tight house is keeping the heat in. I’m excited to see the difference that our living in the house will actually make; six people, a dog, a cat, and numerous appliances running, all which emit heat.
So, what’s next? A busy week coming up. On Monday we will have the stair installation begin and the floors will start to be installed. All along as well the painters have been in working on the trim work and prepping the wood for the stairs.
The countdown is on!
