We spent most of the afternoon with the family at the farm. I'm glad we've kept the tradition of returning to the farm as a family alive all these years.
My last post was over 2 weeks ago. Lots of things have happened since then. The week of 12/16 brought snow and ice. Sun and temperature changes combined to turn the driveway into an icy mess surrounded by a muddy yard. Only a few ruts, no one fell down - except me. By the end of the week things were much better.
|Our first real snow of the season. So pretty!|
|And, so much fun to play in!|
|Oh come on, play with me . . .|
All the windows are trimmed out on the first and second floors. They look wonderful. Jay and Greg have done a great job. We're starting to get a good picture of what each room is going to look like when it's all done. The interior doors arrived on December 20th. We were a little worried that the truck driver would have trouble backing into the driveway, but he made it without too much trouble.

|The garage is filled with doors and trim.|
|And the kitchen is the staging area for the finished woodwork.|
The doors are beautiful. I can't wait to see them finished and in place. Greg and Jay hung a couple of them this past Friday (12/27) and plan to have the rest hung by next weekend.

|The stain really brings out the woodgrain.|
Our geo-thermal furnace is operational. No more temporary furnace! They're still completing some of the ductwork and need to install the humidifier and the ERV (energy recovery ventilation) system. It's so quiet.

|Master bath tile and granite bench. The green stuff on the wall is waterproofing.|
Warmer weather allowed the deck boards to be put on. The railing is being made by a local steel fabricator. Work also started on the railing and screens for the porch.
