I'm fed up with the endless waiting,

so I get other subcontractors to do the kitchen mosaics

and move the water softener into the garage.

Lots of room in the laundry now !

The "heating" story...

It takes 3 men 4 hours to get the system to work,

and then it stops and simply fails after 10 minutes !

More angry phone calls...

But we shall overcome !

The electric installation is finished, the heating works (after 4 more tries...),

the stolen kitchen appliances are replaced, and the crown molding is finished.

Time to bring in more stuff, and turn our attention to other details...

The soil and landfill we got saddled with consists of fat and heavy CLAY;

which means like concrete in the summer,

sticky mud in the winter, and next to impossible to shape or level !

To even out the lawn somewhat we rented a compactor.

We move more things into the garage,

and organize it to receive even more "stuff"...
