40 Days and 40 Nights

This isn't set in stone, but I took a look at the schedule today with Rich the Contractor, and we're agreed: we should be able to finish the house in time for me to move in on Valentine's Day. Which, in case you couldn't guess, is 40 days and 40 nights from now. Wow!

The siding is now 95% complete, and Hector and his brother Alejandro should be able to finish the exterior, including the entry porch, by the end of the week. They've also made a start on nailing the blocking to the deck joists so the LockDry aluminum decking will be installed within the next day or two as well.

With a couple more nice days lined up the plan is to get Kenny the Excavator in tomorrow or Friday to grade and backfill the lot, and when then happens there's no reason why I can't start planting some trees and shrubs.

How exciting is that?
