House Photo Update: The Home Stretch

Once again, I’m devoting a blog post to photos of our house progress instead of a story of delicious cooking, home gardening, or great projects to do with kids.  Soon though, we’ll move into our new home.  It will serve as the new site for my gardening, cooking, and crafting adventures!

Regarding house construction, we’re heading down the “home” stretch!  Tile and wood flooring is in, work is finishing up on trim inside and out, cabinets are being hung, countertops are in the making, and appliances are being delivered.  Efficiency Vermont will be doing their blower door test this week to determine how tight our home actually is.  Based on the quality of the workmanship of Fiddlehead Construction, we think it will prove to be very tight indeed.  During the last sunny but cold week, heat was turned off in the house because it was getting too hot!

As each room develops its own identity, it is easy to start visualizing the house filled with furniture, plants, dishes, friends…   soon!
