Long overdue update

It's about time for an update, don't you think? Life's been slightly hectic here with work over the past few weeks, but hopefully it will be slowing down. To be honest, we haven't really done anything on the house because we're just too exhausted at the end of the day to make any more decisions. Thankfully our builder is staying quiet at the moment, but I suspect that will all change soon.

So what are the most recent updates with the house? Not much really. It seems that we've hit the "slow down" phase. There are a few bits and bobs that are getting sorted but the next real push will likely come when the windows arrive. And yes, they should be leaving Canada next not much longer!

As you can tell above, the spray installation has been applied to the ceilings and walls in the granny-flat above the garage. It's really quite cool because it foams out from the walls and then the installers scrape it back to be even with the framing. This has been done on the high open ceiling in the main house, but the walls won't be completed until the sheet rock can be applied. Soon come...

We recently made a fairly substantial change to our wine storage situation, which was originally planned to be in our great room. Mr. Big spent weeks mulling around underneath our stairwell before he came clean about his intentions...he wanted a wine cave in there.

This wasn't the easiest adjustment to make because the builders had to jackhammer out 18 inches of slab. In any case, you should have seen the stars in Mr. Big's eyes the first time he was able to step down into his soon-to-be wine storage. And at least now I know why he was spending so much time under the stairs...I was starting to get a bit worried. :)

Our cabinet orders will be placed soon so that they can arrive on the island by August. It looks like we will have a full weekend ahead of us going through their final proposals. It will be nice to get that planning off the table and into production. Then again, there will be something else popping up right behind it...

So there's a bit of an update. Hope you enjoyed!
