Finally Windows

Progress is very slow. There are major issues with framers who won't show to finish up their work. Insulation and drywall cannot happen until the framers complete everything. My builder has got to work this out. I'm not very happy right now.

But, at long last, after many cancelled deadlines, the windows were finally installed. The front windows went in Wednesday, August 28 and the back windows and exterior doors were installed on Saturday, August 31. Some plumbing items have started showing up and the exterior has been reinforced so I'm hopeful brick might go on soon - since it is not dependent on the framers. I hope to see progress this week - I'll post when something happens.

In the mean time, I've been studying full home audio systems and I've decided to add speakers to every room and a mid-level audio system. If we don't get drywall soon, there's no telling what else I might find to put behind my walls!

Here are some pictures from this week.
