    Punch list

    I think we can all agree that the answer to Tai's last blog entry title is a resounding YES. But I will definitely forgive him because of all the hard work that the house has taken over the last couple of weeks.

    He has all the photos, but in the meantime, here's a brief run down of what we have left to do:

    • paint color walls
    • master shower tile
    • grout and seal all tile
    • install bamboo floor upstairs
    • buy and install kitchen appliances
    • kitchen countertop
    • clean and seal concrete floor downstairs
    • bathroom cabinets and countertops
    • figure out landscaping
    • figure out window coverings
    • resolve some differences with the bank

    This is what the contractors still have left:

    • complete mechanical (duct) work downstairs
    • finish site grading
    • start and finish site concrete (patio, sidewalks, retaining walls, etc.)
    • finish electrical work — install lighting
    • finish plumbing work
    • finish exterior metal work
    • some small finish work inside (perhaps baseboard?)

    It's not a complete list, but if you don't hear from us for a while it's because we're happily buried in house work.
