Thom and Young Brian are setting the flagstones outside the great room doors, and they're not enjoying it much. They enjoy the precision of measuring and cutting wood, not this arbitrary puzzle work..
At what point does the house change owners? Of course, from the git-go the bank has been and will be for a long time, the owner. But, from the moment Thom borrowed the model of the house to study, he has been the owner, but there has been a shift now. The guys are outside, and we are taking control of the inside. We're just awaiting the gas guys to come connect everything, and then we can completely finish the inside cleaning.
We've already taken over the bedroom and my bath, waxing the floors and those areas are now off limits to the workers and their muddy boots. We've even put the blue painting tape across the areas to limit movement.
And, we are now finished with this blog. I find that the closer we get to moving in, the less I want to write, which I think is normal.
The neighborhood open house will be this Saturday, March 20th from 2-4, after which we, we will shut down the public part and live privately.
Thank you for reading about our little retro house.
"Goodnight Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are."
