    once we take down the tarps and it dries out a bit (hopefully this afternoon) I will be able to get in there and get some pictures of it all set up. I have a meeting with the contractor on monday to disucss the concrete for the driveway, so we will see what he didn't quote there that he wants me to pay for!

    Yes, we're seeing nice bell-curve output too, though our system peaks at around 4.5kw.

    just met with the contractors. As I expected, they are trying to get me to cover their mistake of not quoting the sidewalk.

    I think we are just about wrapped up though, once we actually pour.

    We had a productive weekend. I made use of this guy and did some grading, and cleared out my front yard of rocks.

    Then we built this (this was while it was in progress. I still have a few of the extra rocks to move out of the way):

    The funny thing is, all of these rocks came from the stone wall I built 3 years ago to the day!

    well, we got our final permit closed out, but we still don't have the driveway or the sidewalk! Hopefully sidewalk tomorrow, if it dries out, then driveway next week. There is some minor grading that needs to happen, but right now the entire yard is a giant mud pit. I lost a shoe trying to get to the front door last night! At least it is raining so I can see where the water is heading! I had it looking pretty good, but then left some pretty big bear prints while clomping around!

    I have been working on getting the baseboard up in the garage itself, so that is all prepped. I need to pick up some silicon and then screw it in. I ended up using the extra deck boards, since they are waterproof, but not enough to do much of anything else with. I am going to lay a big bead of silicon down, then press in the boards, then lay another bead of silicon over that. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how that turned out. There are a few spots where there are access panels that look a little clunky, but it is a garage and I'm not all that worried about it. As long as I can keep the water from getting into the drywall I will be fine. Once that is done, I will be able to move my cabinets into place. I can't wait to start setting up the shop space! It is so frustrating having the cabinets all wrapped up on a pallet in the middle of the floor!

    I also need to cut a few trim pieces for the attic access, so I can keep a bit more of the heat in there. I also need to put some supports up in the attic as well, so I can utilize it for storage. There is 14" of insulation up there, and very little head room. I probably will only do 1 side for now, since I don't really have a ton of stuff to put up there.

    It was really nice to be in the garage with it at 55º when it was 28º outside. I found that the cove heaters take a while to heat things up, so I will have to remember that for when I need to get the heat cranked in there. The unit stays nice and comfortable, but I had the heat set at 45º in the garage. I will see what happens with the attic hole closed up.

    I got the dishwasher installed last night and tested, no leaks so I think i'm good. Washer and dryer work, fridge is cooling down. Hot water works.

    I did a little touch up paint and made the bed for photos:

    I got the bathroom mirrors and towel bars hung up. I am really happy with how the bathroom turned out. I may even put some wainscott up in my house bathroom!

    We have a driveway! (you can see the recent score of firewood in the back too!)

    and we are working on the path to the unit. We are using bricks from our old patio to line the edges, then will do crushed gravel. I'm still trying to figure out the steps.

    We had a productive weekend of digging gravel, cutting steps, and burying bricks for our pathway. I also scored another 1/2 cord of aged firewood, so that was a nice bonus!

    That garage looks amazing. I could wrench in that all day. Congratulations.

    Maybe I missed it, but are you going to put a stove in there?

    I also got a new to me bandsaw as well that I put in there. Hopefully next week I can spend the majority of the nights getting the organization set up there....

    i am beginning to worry that I will just start putting stuff places, then never get around to organizing it! I did print out some labels the other day though and labelled my extension cord location :)

    I had some of the flagstone that was left over from a previous patio, so I decided to put in a little patio in front of the cottage. I built my stone wall using rocks from around the property, and put in a few perennials around the stones. I upcycled a few timbers, and transplanted some iris and alliums that needed to be moved when they built the sidewalk and driveway.

    I am not sure if I am going to do flagstone on the right side, or use that for above the stone wall, under our deck. Because of how they ran the decking, we get drips in the rain, so I need to figure out something to make it usable space for storage and hanging out.

    I have about 1/2 of it painted (*walls and ceiling) over the last couple of nights of painting. We are hoping to have a party tomorrow, so I was planning on getting the rest of it painted tonight and tomorrow morning. The party was supposed to be outside, but its supposed to be thunderstorms all afternoon!

    we had a party on saturday and it was pouring, so I needed to make some space! :)

    I still need to get the layout finalized of the cabinets, tools and toys, but I had to focus on some exterior work to prevent more gully washes before the party.

    well, on the day of the party, we woke up to a gully wash that took out half of our new gravel path,and a lot of the dirt. Apparently straight up dirt isn't very good for managing water flow! (jk, i know this.... it was sarcasm)

    So an hour before our party, I went out and got a ton of 3/4" gravel to try and slow things down. Sunday, I spent most of the day bringing my stones that were not used on the lower wall back up the hill to build a wall to direct a bit of the water into a sump pit and french drain under the path. I haven't gotten the french drain in yet, but hopefully will this weekend. We need a bit of mulch in the bed around the boulder wall, and a few more rocks and our mining cart placed in the hill side.

    I got 12 ton of mixed gravel delivered and spread by hand. I have to build my raised beds (for next season or fall veggies) on the gravel area.

    I threw down some grass seed and winter grass matting in hopes I can get some grass growing. I have a little bit more grading to do on the hillside out back, a few more piles of rocks to get out of the way, and a patio to build under the deck. Hopefully this weekend is chainsaw and splitter time though...
