All cleaned up for the executive tour. I'm ready to move in to this place. Just to recap on the obvious here, we are way behind schedule on this place. That said, I think it has reached "move-in" status and I'm about to start campaigning to this end.

I'm sure people are wondering what we are doing exactly. There is no paper or Tyvec on the exterior, just the old ship-lap siding. It makes me think that after all of this, to just stucco the outside would be anti-climactic. My neighbors and all who drive by on Stafford have become cynical. They don't know greatness. Perspective? Frank Ghery lived in a half de-constructed plywood shack for years (he probably still does). Taking a page out of his book, I could clad my house in something unorthodox like deer skin. Take care of the roadkill issue in Charleswood and utilize a renewable resource -- the White Tailed Deer.


OK, it's time to re-surface. Things have reached a bit of a stalemate wrt to my house, but I've got a few pics to show nonetheless. Before I do that, however, I'll drop a few in of a Carroll Construction project I spent a few days on. Here you can see how excited Peter gets when I'm on his jobsite -- he can hardly contain himself.

This two-storey addition is going to almost double the square footage of this storey-and-a-half. The whole main floor addition will be kitchen, with living quarters and bath on the second floor.
