It's definitely September now before we'll move in. Still, not really that bad, considering. The mudder is about half-way through now - one coat done and sanded. We're hoping he'll be done for the painter to come in on the 27th, followed by the flooring guys and cabinetry installer during the first week of September.

Here are the latest pics.

Mid morning light in the living room on a sunny day:

The front of the house with almost all the siding done. That last bit will be done over the next couple of weeks. We're still waiting for our permanent doors to arrive, but the frames have been installed now:

Good news and bad news...

The good news is - dry wall is complete!! The guys worked Saturday and Monday (a holiday) to finishe - yay. Bad news is, the taper can't come in to start the next step until Friday :( That puts us a few days behind on interior finishing. The regular crew is continuing its work, however, so it's not like nothing is getting done. Still, a tad disappointing as this pretty much guarantees we won't be in until early September now.

Drywall - day 2...

Lots of progress yesterday.

Let's start in the basement with Sean's workshop:

Here's what it looks like from behind - they're almost finished with the window trim:

We're still hoping for doors this week.... but won't hold our breath.
