The drywall is almost finished. So that means that the flooring can be installed next. Which should take 3 or 4 weeks.

Back in July, I wrote that I hoped to be done by Halloween. I could conceivably be "done" by Halloween, and move in, but, there wouldn't be any water, electricity, or heating. I could pitch a tent in the family room and sleep in it. Maybe burn some of the rubbish in the backyard to stay warm. Take a bath in Evian.

It's time to announce a new estimated completion date. I read the entrails of a fish, studied the stars, had my cards read, let go of my feelings, listened to the midichlorians, and the future is clear. The house will absolutely, positively be done by Christmas.

Unless the date slips again.
