Week 27 – Rain, rain, come on the one day we need it!

WEEK 27 – After playing a tenuous game of “it needs to not rain for two days and then rain again” and wishing for just the right about of weather turbulence, we were rewarded with a follow-up week of a lot of rain. I guess that’s karma.

A lot of rain was not great for our next step, which was leveling and grating the yard to come up on the sides of the house where it will need to for siding. Instead, some inside work got done this week, including more work from our plumbers, the laundry drains, and the delivery of our bathtubs. This also spurred on the first insulation installation as the walls behind each tub needed to be insulated and have plastic put in.

On the very bright side, with all the windows in, doors on, and roofing done, the house stayed very dry despite all the rain. And now that the basement floor is in and the sump pump secured, the basement stays very dry as well.

Sunday sunshine brought the start of our grating adventure, to be finished early this week and then we’ll turn our attention to the siding. Unfortunately, the first snowflakes are in the forecast this coming weekend. We could use a few more weeks of sunshine to get this outside stuff wrapped up before the flakes really fly!
