So after a bit of a house hiatus called "my body hurts too much to walk through the house," I came by yesterday and today to take a peak.
See our lovely attic stairs?
They got carpet! This is the only place in the house where it will be totally carpeted:
The view down. Alok also covered up the areas at the top here with wood to reduce the pet hazards
The outside of the house is almost ALMOST painted. There is a bit of trim to complete and then there are little parts here and there that can be done (chimneys, some windows, etc), but it will be good enough for now very soon. Let's hope that we get a few more days of good weather to finish up!
The last major part to be finished:

The rest of the house is just starting to look like... well, a house! It's kinda crazy. Here it is (well, party
Notice that someone started to decorate
That's all for now! Alok and Pat are moving more things in as a type. Being full-term kinda gets me out of doing that and I'm not complaining!
