Today was an exciting day!!  We got water!!  Danny came out from the town and turned it on for us, and was patient enough to turn it off and on while we worked out the leaks.  Thanks so much Danny!  And  a big thanks to Arnold also, as he uncovered the fact that we already had a 3/4″ line and didn’t have to dig one.  I love small towns!  The people are so helpful and friendly. 

Additionally today we went to the landfill, went to Lowe’s, completed the electrical requirements from the real electrical inspector that got into town and came to do our rough-in inspection (but he apparently called in sick today and therefore didn’t show up all day.)

Leah and I finished painting the final coat of paint on some of the trim, with her painting off of the ladder, and me painting on the ladder (she is into her 8th month of pregnancy.)


John and Jake worked on removing the shingles and tar paper from the bathroom roof, as once we worked on some things requested by the electrical inspector, we noticed we could see sunlight through that roof.  Here are pictures of Jake learning to remove nails and shingles with a flat shovel, and John instructing and sweeping the roof so as to not leave anything on it that might be slippery.
