Been super busy with Holidays and I did some hunting. Hired some painters and they are currently painting the interior. I still have a lot to do and delayed everything a week or so.

Cold weather through Thursday and I will be after it Friday-Sunday.

Busy wknd and almost done! I believe this week I should finish it pending weather.

Siding is up. I just need to go back and screw middle sections all the way around which shouldn't take long at all. Inside coming together and will be the main focus this week. Porch corners during daylight and inside at night.

Few pics from today and another beautiful sunset.

We have some guys at work doing an $82,000 remodel. They aren't doing near the amount, or quality work you've done.

I want to fire myself. Lol... I was supposed to be done in October but some antlered animal had me side tracked. Now that he is in the freezer I can focus. Looks like I have a clear week of great weather for January. I'm really thankful it hasn't been freezing cold since dragging this out for so long. I do know after this I will finish up a couple antler orders and work on some personal projects for a while. Probably still make a few antler pieces along the way but I am ready to settle down a little with the family. Time has passed by way too fast!

I have followed this thread since day one and you my friend have been blessed with talent. Your family is very luck to have a person that is willing to take on such a task.

I have really enjoyed your updates.

Finishing up trim by tomorrow, electrical outlets and fixtures by Wednesday, door hardware, toilets and sink hook ups by Thursday and Friday will be finishing touches and most likely counter top depending on arrival at store.

Painting of trim will be done later by my BIL at his convenience. Move in will be this wknd and all of next week.

I need to tally up total cost. Spent another $1300 in the last week but that was for remaining items needed to finish.

Little work before dark. Grab some dinner and get back after it in a few.

Master bath complete. Just have closets and half the master bedroom left.

Sure missing the table saw that was stolen and never recovered. Need to rip a few door trim pieces down to knock out the trim.

I have a table saw you can use. Doesn't have a stand, but you can rig something up with saw horses.

Yes the 2 above we're the ones that stole everything from me. Nother ever happened with the AC guys and the camera. $100 loss and I got tired of arguing with them.

All that's lacking on the inside is plumbing hook-up to sinks, toilets and water heater. As well as counter tops, door hardware, fixtures and plug covers. Looks nice walking in. I look forward to getting electric hooked up on Friday and seeing everything lit up!

Using Emseal Rolls of foam for the angled closure. Will expand 1 1/2" thick once it sets. $25/roll of 15' and we'll worth it!
