    Thanks Mike, It should look even better when the wood handrails are on, wood for that is on site

    You know the rules, or you should by now, if you really want to be helpful don't ask questions, just send more money!

    Just remember one day you will wake up and it will be finished.

    Hi Ootai, If I'm still sane by then, here's a real example of what I've got to deal with, this is builders verson of a P-trap

    I just told wife to tell daughter not to wash any food scraps down drain or it will be plugged before I get back to change it.

    A few more changes to the front of house

    Snowbird house build in LOS-4-1-20-2-jpg

    With daughters wide angle lens it makes deck look bigger than house, I think I've got her convinced to turn that off, we'll see in future pictures

    Getting there Denis, the arse ache of managing this from afar will soon fade once you have your sundowner in hand with a BBQ sizzling away.

    Hi NPT, that's what I'm looking forward to next year when we go, there'll still be lots of odds and ends to take care of but that's what I like to do.

    Coming along great considering the virus thing. You need anything done let me know.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Thanks Mike, we tried to keep it simple and we both like neutral colors, had to fight the daughter a bit about

    modern styling, we let her add a bit to keep her happy. We've noticed the lower area is a bit dark so

    we talked about changing some of the walls to a lighter color but will wait until later after we get

    contractor out.

    Hi Norton, I'm surprised too that they're still working but I know the builder wants his money so I'm sure


    he's pushingto get it done so he can get paid, we've been paying small amounts to keep him happy and

    working even though wecould wait until he's finished. The final amount won't get paid until a year after

    he's finished so don't have to worry about him packing up before it's done and there are extra's that we

    haven't paid because he hasn't finished, he likes to start things but not finish, example the deck, all that's

    left is to make sure water goes to drain and paint.

    The deck is done with some problems

    Don't know if you can see it on the photo's but there's a bubble in the paint in the middle, my guess is they didn't let the concrete

    cure long enough where they filled low spots and the moisture is trying to get out.
