Weekly Update #5

We are still working really hard during every spare moment we have!  This past week we finished tiling both bathroom floors, passed our electrical inspection, starting covering the walls with plywood, covered the master bathroom shower with backer board, painted on some Red Gard waterproofer, installed a toilet and temporary sink in the master bathroom, finished the short can wall in the greenhouse, cleaned out our bedroom a bit, and cleaned out the living room/kitchen/dining room open space and began laying that granite floor!
