    Roof is on! Mid roof, final, and siding inspection today... the rusted metal on the bottom should be installed too.

    they put up the stairs and the railing yesterday, but I didn't get any pictures of that yet :)

    we will utilize it for some firewood storage after it gets levelled off, and also have our ski chair hanging off the overhang.

    Cabinets are all set:

    plumbers were there at 730am today, so they were making progress with the tub and the faucets. The Father in law is coming to visit for a few days, and is going to repaint the trim and touch up the walls and ceilings. We had to get on the PM to get things cleaned a bit better so the paint actually sticks :)

    hopefully he is building my cabinet in the garage for my utility sink

    plumbers were back this morning to set the tub and the toilet, the father in law and sister in law are touching up paint right now..
    not sure when the electrician is coming back to wrap up, but xcel may be anywhere between now and 5 weeks.... uggggg

    also waiting to hear back about when the roofers will be coming back to finish up so we can get our solar wrapped up.

    i placed the corrugated next to the door to see what it looks like (look, you can see some of my wood pile :)).

    roof is done and the corrugated metal is up on the front (you can really tell which one was on the top of the pile.... )

    Also, back to the original question- what are some tool storage and organizational thoughts that people have? its always good to get some other ideas.

    I'm debating between a rolling toolbox for tools, or doing a shadowboard along the wall with a cleat system. I was sort of contemplating setting up a french cleat system that runs along the entire wall, then doing individual shadow boards for each series of tools (currently they are organized by destruction (crowbars, saws, saw blades, etc), general repair (allen wrenches, screw drivers, sockets, etc), construction (hammers, clamps, nail guns, etc).

    My biggest issue is that with the deep cabinets, I am constantly having to pull something out to get to something else. I'm not going to hang my sawzall case on a shadowboard on the wall...

    I think what I really need to do is physically put everything in the garage that needs to go in there, and then see what would work best with the layout.... it will be a giant mess and my family might not see me for a few days, but I think it will be worth it in the end!

    I just found this.... I think it will work for what I am looking at. in conjunction with some cleats and hooks.

    All of the corrugated metal is up. We still have to oxidize it, but I think it will look really great!

    All of the fixtures are wrapped

    Electrical box painted, rough grading done. I think i am going to finish the blue window wall with siding, so it smooths the transition a little bit. I still have to bring in a ton of dirt and build a stone wall.

    the contractor was doing some back filling after pouring the step wall to stop the dirt from pouring under our deck. pretty soon, I won't have any access to the crawlspace...

    my kids enjoyed the first meal on the deck (despite the look i am getting). We don't have a table up there yet, so we had to get creative!

    IMG, I haven't looked in on this thread in a while, but your updated look great.

    I really like how the bathroom turned out. And the corrugated metal skirting the building look great too, especially the detail for the spigot. Congrats.

    As for the tool organizing, I am afraid I am no help here because my basement and shed are a mess of disorganization. But I do plan to organize my heavy tools on a big, rolling, metal shelving rack that I can move around in the basement. I figure easy access from all sides, and adjustable shelving height to fix the tool boxes. My problem is using tools and then not putting them back where they belong, makes it hard to find later on when I need it.

    view from the deck was not so bad the other night for the fireworks show!

    gutters are in! they even work! its nice to have the drainage going away from the house, as well as be able to reconnect my gutter from the main house.

    I had to take a picture of the connection so I remember what it looks like when it comes time to replace something.

    We still need the snow guards on the roof, the driveway poured, the deck finished, light bulbs in the fixtures, and the propane tank that went missing needs to get replaced so I can grill :)

    A little muriatic acid followed by hydrogen peroxide turned the metal just the right color.

    heaters are in and cabinets are stained. I think the color matched up pretty closely, if I do say so myself! Washer and dryer are installed, now I have to wait for power for the rest of the appliances.

    I have to figure something out for the front door. When they put it in, they didn't use the jamb extensions, and now the door is recessed about 2 inches in. I can't use a standard doorstop, and I need to figure out how to stop my handle from smashing into the countertop.

    I have rigged up a few of the rubber floor spacers but on the inside of the door jamb. This seems to help, but looks terrible.
