Basement Livable

The basement is mostly complete: toilet, tub, sinks, stove, refrigerator, beds. We've been sleeping here for two weeks. It's great to be here, though a little challenging since it is still a construction site.

Nearing the end of the brown coat!

We are nearing the end of the brown coat. It is going a little faster than I thought. It is just Michelle and I so it is still a bit slow. We finished Ruby's room yesterday, inserting the black walnut window sill, as in Julia's room. It looks amazing.

Today we do the stairwell. That will be a challenge since the top part runs up 1.5 floors. Then we'll finish the balcony by our bedroom and finally the porch; which means we need to install the front door. I wish Ken will be here for that.

The house is looking better every day.

I can't wait to be done with the brown coat and start putting on the clay.

Brown Coat Done Inside

I finished the brown coat on the bale walls inside yesterday. What a relief!!! The stairway came out beautiful, though I made a bit of a mess even though I masked the walls and floor.

The mixer sprung a leak yesterday also. Damn.

I just need to finish the brown coat on the porch and balcony. 1-2 more days then good by mixer for a while (at least until we are ready to do the color coat outside).

Brown Coat DONE!

Finally, we finished the brown coat today. I'm beat; more later.
