Progress 16

stairsclearing the woodsThe workmen are finishing up the trim work – it is slow and tedious and not very photogenic. But the stairs are finished and will be stained to match the flooring when the painters come. The electrician is slowly installing the rest of the lights, though the upstairs circuits are not yet hot since the fans are still covered with garbage bags to keep off the saw dust.

The only difference that is really obvious is outside in the woods. We need to take down about 1/4 acre of trees for the new waste water system – mounds, curtain drain and swale to handle the waste water and rain run off from the hillside. We’ve been spending 1-2 hours each day working our way through the new field area, so far taking out the small stuff with loppers and a bow saw. We’re waiting for reinforcements before we start with the chain saw. We’re planning a good sized bonfire and chipping party once we get all the wood down. And I’ll get to spend some time through the Fall splitting all that green wood for next year.
