Happy Thanksgiving

November 26, 2009

Vince and I have a lot to be thankful for this year… We are so greatful to have new friends in our lives thanks to this crazy house on Mercado. 

My opening shot for the day was taken on a walk I took today (thanks to my company giving us the afternoon off).  It is a photo back toward our “hill” and shows what the Wednesday before Thanksgiving had in store for commuters…  I was happy to be on foot.

As for the house, we met yesterday and duked it out over the placement of the cold air return downstairs.  Dallas (Big D) was victorious.  No grates in the entry way!  They have marked off the current lighting plan so we can compare and make changes before the wiring starts.  That will be soon so we need to get with Kevin to finalize.  Our first fixtures also made it to the site.  Oh and we got a sample of the type of walnut flooring we are looking at – it is going to be beautiful.  Five inch planks in longer lengths.  Since the space is so long, we need to be sure that we don’t make it look like a basketball court.  The roof starts going on on Friday.  Our hope is that it could be ready for rain by Monday.  Unfortunately, Mother Nature will have to play some catch up.


The mechanical guys manage to find a way to route the ducts so we don’t need an extra soffit (another score for Dallas!).

Bricks awaiting to be placed in the extended chimney.

And best of all – windows arrived today!  They will start going in on Monday.
