Glad to hear it, GP. I had just checked and it's been a week since he last logged in.

House updates!

Went over this past weekend (just getting a chance to upload the photos now) and found lots of progress in the past week! All of the electrical work appears to be completed and all switches, outlets, and light fixtures are installed both inside and outside. The ovens are installed in the kitchen and the last of the water faucets are installed. The tankless hot water heater is also installed. As near as I can tell, the last plumbing piece to be done is the toilet installation in the guest/upstairs bathroom. As you can see below, we also have our driveway and sidewalk in place!

The other pleasant surprise when I wandered upstairs is the carpeting is installed throughout the second floor. Here is a shot where you can see the color pretty well. Almost all of it is covered by the plastic you see to protect it during the rest of the finishing work. 5 weeks until moving day!

That is a lot of progress! Looks like a lovely setting too. Hope you can retain enough of the bush in back to draw wildlife to your property - I see lots of it from my apartment window and it always seems to be a treat when set against the city sights and sounds.

What is the purpose of that carve-out at the bottom end of the driveway? Is there some utility line running under there that might require digging up that corner in future?

Thanks, BB! First, I have no idea why they put the unusual curved seam on the corners of the driveway. Perhaps the corners tend to wear and crack sooner than other parts of the driveway, so it helps them contain cracks? I can only guess.

As for the "bushes" in the back, we absolutely intend to keep around half of the property tree covered. The issue that we will have to address is that those "bushes" are actually wild Callery Pear trees. They are an offshoot from Bartlett Pears, and a throw back to the original root stock used to grow Bartlett Pear trees. They are an invasive species and they grow really fast. The "bushes" level you can see behind the house are around 8 feet tall and were brand new sprouts this year. The next level of trees behind them are around 20 feet tall and they were "bush" size last year. Their part of the lot was not cleared before construction started. They still wouldn't be a problem at all except for the fact that they grow 4 inch long spikes all over them that are strong enough to puncture tractor tires! They grow so tightly together that there is no way to make your way into/between them safely, without being impaled several times.

The solution is a long term plan (maybe 3 years) where I'll use my new chain saw and take them down for firewood to burn in the firepit we will build in the back yard. I'll be cutting them down, cutting them up, and painting the freshly cut stumps with Roundup or something similar to kill off the root structure. Once I get them cleared, the next part of the plan is to replant the entire "grove" with red and yellow oaks and maples. I want to back fill the entire area with desirable trees to provide lots of nesting area for birds and squirrels, as well as some cover for deer that we've seen tracks from on the land. I may be overly ambitious, but right now I'm looking forward to working on this project.
