The middle of last week the guys for sheet rocking the house came and they moved fast!! The upstairs was the first day and half and today the first floor is finished. Today they started working on the downstairs doing the insides of the closets and some of the soffits.

It is so exciting to see more being done...we want to do the painting of the walls ourselves so we can do different colors.

Saturday was solo and ensembles for Berlin, Winnecone and Ripon schools...

Trevor participated in eight different pieces.....some were for choir and some for band...he got 5 firsts and 2 seconds and we did not stay for the result of the last duet. He was in the high school jazz band also...they needed another trombone player so he was asked to play.

The house at the end of week..March 1st

The house is insulated...all but the sound reducing insulation that will be put in the ceiling of the basement and the bedroom wall.

The plumber was there and got the tub/shower put in the upstairs bath and the shower in my bath. They also were working putting the plumbing in the kitchen.

The kitchen is closed in and the wall between it and the laundry room/mud room moved to the west a foot or 18 inches.

my tub..notice the fireplace...told Chris that I had a
fireplace and he said that would be fine..but couldn't  have
a toilet!  (it's the old one)

north window for kitchen..sink will go here.
