You might remember my talking about the delivery of all the appliances from Abt back… how many months ago? Heck, I think about it been late last year, in fact.
Well, over the course of the past week, the construction team has been clearing all of this out of the garage, as the whole process begins to wind down. While they’ve fallen a week or two behind the original schedule, Tim has tried to speed things up to make sure this all gets taken care of by the end of the week. Although it’s not entirely out of altruism, as he and his family had already made plans to take a week’s vacation starting with the Independence Day holiday. Not that I blame him in the slightest; he and his men have worked hard, and are more than entitled to the breaks they’ve arranged for themselves.
Long story short, pretty much everything except for the interior cleanup is supposed to be done by today. Oh, and the final inspection, which will be the week after next. So as a result, the garage has finally been cleaned out of all those boxes.
So, with that in mind, I figure I might as well take you on a quick tour of the house thus far, and you can see what’s been done with all the stuff that the construction team has managed to uncrate and install. Let’s start with the kitchen…
It’s actually a bit intimidating, to be honest. The washer and dryer, in particular (but the oven and the microwave have a lot, too) are covered in electronic options to control them. I’m just trying to fix a meal or wash my clothes; I really didn’t expect to have to be flying the starship Enterprise in order to do it. And while you might have gotten a kick out of an arrangement of appliances done up so as to look like you’re flying the TARDIS, that would have been that much more impractical, since that would require everything to be arranged in the middle of the kitchen – and given that the back sides of these things are less than aesthetically pleasing, it wouldn’t have been a good idea.
Still, this seems to be what the end game looks like, and I know I’ve said it so many times before, but I wish you could be here to see what’s been done. I’d like to think you be enthusiastic about the results.
But for now, just keep an eye on us, and I’ll check in with you later. Love you.
