Alrighty, the siding is DONE! The front will have the stone on it. It got delivered today but seeing that it’s supposed to rain the rest of the week, I doubt we get that up until next week sometime.
As we speak, Scott is off to pick up a fireplace I found on Craigslist. This whole time we were thinking we’d need a ventless one and it would run about $600. Come to find out you have to have a vented one in a bedroom. Well, of course, those are $1300. Um, no thanks. I want a fireplace but not that bad. But Craigslist to the rescue. This couple has the exact vented fireplace we need that (sadly) they had gotten free after their friend gave it to them when his house plans got canceled when his wife passed away. I will be honored to take good care of the fireplace and enjoy it even more than I had planned. (Oh and I should mention it was only $75!)
Scott will be super busy tomorrow trying to get the fireplace in, the electrical and HVAC up to snuff for code and cross your fingers, we’ll have it inspected on Thursday. Assuming we pass, the crew can start the drywall! Whew, if I didn’t know any better, I might think we could be done by the end of April!
