Nothing much happened on Monday.
On Tuesday, while workers were getting after it with brick, flooring and clean-up, we had a surprise visit from our friends in Arkansas. They drove down to see the house and added to the surprise by bringing a folding bistro table, chairs, wine, cheese, cups and even some pickles. The day suddenly turned into the very first party at New House.
Then on Thursday they wanted to tour the French Quarter. I made a video of that adventure.

Things like gutters, irrigation, floors, bricking the fence and gate, landscaping, cabinet knobs and pulls, trim work, appliances moved into place, and general clean-up. And that's what this week was like.
And on the 18th, we hit the 100th day mark. It sure seems like more. Even so, to do what all they have done in 100 days is nothing short of impressive. And we really appreciate their efforts.
Starting tomorrow, the 105th day, landscaping will be making the soil green and pretty.
Meanwhile, with all the rain today, it was a really good day to test the gutters and drainage. Apparently, the gutters all worked well, but the drain-off didn't do so well in some spots. I'm sure it will be handled with the same professionalism as everything else.
The flooring looks great, but is presently covered with paper and cardboard while all the finish work is taken care of. Hopefully, we will be able to have the refrigerator delivered this week.
And we will soon have the correct size wine chiller delivered here at Temporary House for us to install ourselves after we move in. We had already purchased one, but its height was 1" too tall for the beverage center. We'll take it back tomorrow. The replacement fits the opening perfectly, or so the Specifications said. We'll see.
On Saturday, while there was no activity going on, I programmed my truck to open the garage door. That was a Eureka moment...
Here are a few photos from the fifteenth week.
Monday Just some general cleanup
