Tile used for both the guest and master shower. Forgot to snap a pic of the walk in master.

We also had a visitor a few nights ago. I was up working late, and with no lighting yet, I was using a flash light. I walk into the kitchen area and this guy started buzzing at me. I don't know how close I got, but I made one giant leap the other way when I heard it. He must have crawled through the front door.

That would have resulted in several holes in that freshly painted sheetrock!

Updating the thread. We now have lights and AC in the house!! Really excited about this. My wife and I sat in the living room with a glass of wine marveling the fact that we didnt have to use a flash light haha! Also, the master shower is almost done now! Cabinets were delayed a little longer, but should come in this week. Soil test is now done, and we will be able to start septic soon.

Additionally, looks like we have something worked out with the builder on the metal building. We had some back and forths, and finally agreed upon a number that accounted for all the issues we had. My wife and I are looking forward to finally closing that book and moving on.

NO NO NO! Ok I fixed the pic but tell us how you handled the rattle bug? Is there additional holes in the foundation or walls? Please don't tell me you are a snake lover and gave him a pass?

Haha! My initial thought was to start flailing a shovel until I was convinced he was dead. Then I thought about what a pain in the arse painting was, and quickly decided to take my chances with the snake. I stuck the shovel down, and after he struck it a couple times, pulled him from the wall and gave him the narrow edge of the shovels a few times.

Looking great, the house and not the snake.

Barndo living is great, especially when the appraiser does his review........of the outside!

Well we are trucking along now with the build. Custom pecan cabinets are all in. Tile is finished, and granite counter tops just now finished. Working on trim and hanging doors this weekend. Carpet comes September 28th, hopefully septic will be started soon. We are doing this ourselves, so should be interesting. All we have left now is the aforementioned, plus blow in insulation for the ceiling, faucets and trim, our false beam in the living room with wagon wheel chandelier, and minor finish out stuff. Hope to be moved in by October 15th!

Was planning on starting the same build in a year or 2. But wife and i are leaning more toward a Metal building house and then the shop separate becasue its pretty clear the shop will be BIG for all my junk.

Thanks! We are really excited about those two. The floor looks amazing. It cost a few coins, but it was worth it. Ill post some pics when we get it all mopped up and shinning.

Pecan bar top will be finished today. Trim man will finish out trim around the island tomorrow. Septic will finish up next week, and we hope to be moved in the following week!! I cannot wait to have this behind me. It has turned out really nice.

Sorry guys. I made another thread about just the completion of it. We have been in for about 6 months now. Loving every minute of it. We are very happy with how it all finished up.

Let me see if I can find the thread.
