01.27.15 We have a roof (framed), exterior doors, lights and medicine cabinets!

y3Waking up this morning I looked outside and seeing men on the ROOF hammering and building was a wonderful sight!  Then to see the Gabriel’s truck drive up and unload roofing boards and felt paper was a double wonderful sight!

20150127_100728e1e2We received a call from Lowe’s yesterday that the back door we special ordered is in.  The back door is normally an 723647599217lgin stock door but we added a special jamb that is weather proof to stop it from rotting since it is not protected from the weather like the front door is. The front door was in stock (see pic on left) so we’ll pick both of them up today when we go into Hammond.   Lowe’s charges $65 minimum to deliver so we will pick them up ourselves.

We ordered windows from Gabriel’s and they are at the store now. Gabriel’s will deliver them as soon as they are needed.   They have a store in Amite so their delivery is free.

Before we went to Lowe’s our contractor and electrician came by.  The picture below is of the three of them, Roy, Jerry Joiner and Ronnie Glover.

e4We talked about various things we want that are different from the original plans.  Jerry marked everyplace we want outlets, TV, etc.  and will be back on Friday to do his work!  Yeah for things moving right along.

When working with them near the bar area I looked up and saw the view of the pond and pine trees from the kitchen and it just took my breath away.  Without the mounds of dirt and lumber all over it will really be a beautiful sight.  To see that when you walk in the front door is very special!

We went to Lowe’s to pick up the doors and while there purchased several lighting and bathroom things.  Things like three pendant lights and globes for over the kitchen bar, two beautiful wall fixture for the front porch and one for the Screen shot 2013-07-20 at 7.55.50 AMrear door (another last minute change since we originally picked out cheap ones and upgraded today), exterior flood lights for all four corners, roof vents for the bathroom, bath towel holders, toilet paper dispensers and towel rings.  I’ve been looking at bird feeders every time we’ve been there and today bought two to hang outside.  One is for a tree down by the pond and the other is for near the RV.

When we arrived home we saw their finished work for the day.  Some TYVEK is wrapped on the front porch area and I guess will be finished tomorrow.  We think they will finish their work tomorrow or if necessary Thursday morning.
