more bits and pieces

We're making progress on the house in bits and pieces!

A week or 2 ago, Mom and Dad went up to do some clean-up work, including taking the growing trash pile in front of the house to the dump. Here's the front, all nice and trash-less. :)And here are some of the scraps that used to be there, now at the green waste recycling area of the landfill.

Matt and I went up on Friday to do some odds and ends, including taking down the masking paper that had been up from painting. Mostly, it was down, except for all the annoyingly high and awkward places... Here's the beautiful railing and ceiling, sans paper.

While taking down masking paper, Matt also removed the plastic from more of the windows, inside and out. It's not totally done yet, but the windows sure are looking pretty!
I got the exciting job of tearing drywall out of the shower area--hammering holes in walls is always a good time. But then you have to take care of the little screws, too.
Today, Matt and Dad and our friend Al went up. Dad and Al delivered the first of the finished base cabinets for the kitchen. Cool, eh? You can imagine the range between them...
And Matt worked on the shower enclosure, finishing the plumbing to move the showerhead up a bit (the prerogative of tall homebuilders, I guess), hang hardibacker, and "mud in" the shower pan base.
Bit by bit, we're on our way!
