Short Update

I'd love to write a nice, long update describing in detail everything that's been going on. But I can't. That's because very little has happened at the house. It's extremely frustrating that more is not happening. But people aren't following through on their commitments and there's little control we have over subcontractors. On the positive side, the plumbing passed the rough-in inspection, so we have a green light with that. Elmer's crew finished the cement parging, but they left a huge mess we're still trying to get cleaned up. Aaron brought his pressure washer, so we'll be cleaning the basement floor thoroughly and then staining it. And don't even ask about the windows. You do not want to get me started on what an awful, painful, unbelievable situation this has been.

I know it will be wonderful when it's all done. But with most folks slow to respond or not showing up when they promise, I doubt this house ever will be done.
