  1. Seeing this makes me wish I were around to help out. How many steps after the door? Should I be expecting a five-year anniversary or a completion ceremony when I get back?

    • Not many steps left.
      Things to complete as of July 1.
      – Patch into main electrical
      – Install all electrical fixtures (switches, sockets, lamps, etc.)
      – Apply final coats of joint compound for wall smoothing
      – Paint
      – Lay flooring
      – Install door
      – Install Window (Big one)
      – Install finishing work (moulding, cabinets, etc)
      – + the loft is still not completed
      So lots of work left to do, some easy, some cumbersome, some intimidating. We’ll be sure to have something for you to do once you’re home <- ;)
