As of our last visit, the wood stove has been installed, the tile is grouted, and the trim is up. They should be laying carpet as I type, as well as installing plumbing fixtures and hanging doors. We are well on schedule for the work to be done by Nov 9, which is rapidly approaching! With that in mind, we are now hauling a trailer-full of belongings with us each time we head to the farm. It is depressing how small of a dent we have made so far, but things should start moving faster once we get to the interior of the house. It is amazing how full AdventureDad's new shop is getting just with the stuff from the garage. How did we get it all in there? We made a little progress on the chicken coop, but were unable to finish it because we had to take time to winterize the trailer. Yup, freezing weather is here, which makes living out of the camper a little more troublesome. If it was going to be longer we would go ahead and put skirts around it and run a heater to try to keep the pipes warm, but hopefully it will only be a couple more weeks before we can move in to the house, so instead we are blowing the water out of the pipes with the compressor and pouring antifreeze in the sink traps before we leave. It is a pain, but less painful than frozen pipes!
I am a bit behind on photos, so there are a few from last week as well.
