2 major things happened today. the damn 1000lb fridge is IN the house Vs IN the garage. this required a crane. so while the crane was here the concrete guy brought over some of the bigger pieces of counter. in the above shot you can see 2 chunks of counter plus the fridge. in the lower right corner you can see the corner of the island, covered with rags… ya i can’t keep anything tidy anymore!!

the below shot is all i could find of the same kinda view. i’m pretty sure i was in the corner, where i also am in the above shot, but as you can tell the latter used up more floor space.

we’ve come so far i’d forgotten that there was even an end. now we’ve reached the point where the finish is so close i can smell the oatmeal cookies!



What in the world??

This temp deck?!? It’s so the crane can have a platform to set the

appliances and concrete counter tops on. YES!! we have officially

reached the downward side of the Are We Done Yet Mountain. And I’m

gonna miss it. Have to take the egg in for a root canal… Poor bebe.

we updated the electricity panel to the house. it went something like this.

there used to be 4 fancy palms and some pretty rocks and quite wide. Everything had to be removed and/or dug up to allow us access to the buried cables that serve the casa. the electric panel on the side of the house was original to the house.

it wouldn’t have had enuf watts or amps (whichever word) to service us once all the kitchen and lighting and electrical upgrades have been completed. there would have been conversations something like “honey, i’m running the washing machine and the TV is on so you can’t microwave any hot pockets right now”

so we bit the bullet. powered down the house (we went to VA). Mr CM got a crew tghtr and they tore shit up!! i was sad to miss it. turns out i like DEMO. very much enjoy the DEMO!

so instead of keeping such a wide area i had them narrow the gap. we need more concrete for parking then i like to have green things that need water and care and s.t.u.f.f.  Today, Mr CM, Egg and I did this! well they did the lions share.

i mostly stomped on the rocks to set them. i also carried the bags to the trash and keep at Egg to keep working! it didn’t really take that long. maybe 30 minutes…
to me it looks much better. i used the same rocks my neighbor has so there a visual continuity that didn’t exist before. some of the rocks (Black Mexican Pebbles) still had seaweed attached to them not to mention sand in the bags! kinda crazy cool imo.

PS. y’ll notice he’s working on installing the new pine ceiling!! the white beams will not stay white they will be boxed in with the pine planks. this room is nearly finished plus the office too, in only 3 days. since this is the first room and they’ll figuring out their groove they expect to get much faster with each subsequent room/area they do. theres hope it could be totally done by mid-july!! if not then they’ll just stop where ever and take a 2-4 weeks break for the party. YAY PARTY!!!

typical hijinks here at the casa. Egg, Mr Contractor Man & Cory The-Plumber-Who-Says-He-Will-Do-Something-Tmrw-But-Really-Means-16-Days-Later.
he’s cute tho so i’ll keep him around. however much that shite annoys me.
Truth be told the Egg has been actually doing some gopher type labour around the house. i’m quite proud. i didn’t even have to ask him today… may MrCM did tho.



As happy as a ?

the tile floor we took out. she was mean and moody and down right Cold!

the sub floor we hoped we could save but couldn’t. turns out he had a DNR order signed. so we donated him to the trash dump

then we put down some insulation and proceeded with a fresh sub floor.

isn’t she so pink and fresh! she’s got all her wires and outlets primed.

TaDa!! she’s growing up so fast.
