Weekly Update #9

This week we were finishing up in the kitchen, and laying the greenhouse floor.  We packed out some more in the pantry and the bedroom.  Today I was able to pack out a lot of the interior master bathroom wall, and we packed out the inside of the small can wall in the greenhouse.  Chad lined the orange tree planter with rocks.  We had some visitors from Toronto and Dansville NY this weekend and enjoyed meeting them and showing them around.  Next weekend should be a huge work weekend... Joe and Wes are coming back, a few of my family members, and a large group who want a tour and to help!  We were hoping to be in by Halloween, but now we're expecting to be in by Thanksgiving or sooner.  All that's holding us back is plastering the walls so we can cut down on the dust and sand flakes.
