We're in the home stretch. The house is slated to be done in
the middle of April. Here's a bit of the latest:
- We picked a new roofing material. We finally had to give
up on the clay tile -- the manufacturer wouldn't give a firm
date of arrival & the stucco cannot go on until the roof

- The fireplace arrived yesterday.
- We picked a texture for the walls. The
moving right along.

much to write, now it's done. First was the kids' rooms, then
the master bedroom & dining room came next, and today
they did the kitchen, living room, half bath, and entire
downstairs. I didn't notice, but I assume the garage

- The cabinets arrived! I guess they'll be going in next week.
That's it for this week.

- Bad news -- a scheduling conflict appeared with the tile
guy. Looks like 15 May instead of 15 April. Bummer!
- The roofers put up most
of the roof today! Learned a funny store about the room:
The roof was to be delivered last Monday. Apparently

it to someone else!
- Looks like the stucco is going on next week. We've been
waiting for the roof to do the stucco.
