Paradise ponders...

Paradise ponders...  Yesterday was an absolutely crazy day around here.  The roofer/siding guys showed up and worked all day; they're going to finish today on the mud room.  The drywall guys showed up and finished the job (beautifully!) on the mud room and sun room.  Local friends showed up to pick up one of our old doors and a built-in ironing board; both of them are going to be used in their home (I love seeing the replaced bits of our home help someone else!).  Our builders also showed up, albeit briefly: they 6x6 posts they need for the next step on our deck had to be special ordered.  None of us anticipated that 6x6s are no longer often used.

I spent much of my day cleaning the sun room.  I had done this once before, prior to the drywall guys doing their job.  The amount of dust, dirt, and debris they created is nearly beyond belief. :)  I also cleaned the casements for the basement windows, which I had not done since the foundation for the sun room was poured.  It was a good five hours of work to clean that little room well.

This morning I started the final electrical work in the sun room.  I've wired the two duplex outlets (and they work!); next up is the lighting and switches for it.  I'll be done with that in a few hours.  On Friday the tile contractors will be here to install cement board and tile in the sun room, and tile in the mud room.  Painters will be here early next week.  We're getting close to the point where we can actually use those rooms.  Woo hoo!
