The electrical and plumbing are in and they’re about to start the drywall. An e-mail from the wonderful builder yesterday indicates they are still shooting for a May 24th closing. We are delighted at the speed of the progress, considering the quality of work the builder and his subcontractors are doing.
The siding and roof are in process… it’s starting to look more finished!
We were able to get out to Estes on Presidents’ Weekend and were very happy with the progress. It still looks like Dan Smith and his crew may be able to finish by the end of May.
There was no snow to speak of on the ground when we were there but the day after we arrived home in Wichita it started snowing and we got a record 14 inches. Then a few days later, another storm passed through and we got another 6-8 inches, for which we are very grateful… we desperately need the moisture. The (sort of) amusing thing is that we gave each other snowshoes for Christmas – unplanned! – and took them to Estes hoping to put them to use. We left them in our friends’ house for another time, not knowing we were about to get a record snowfall at home. 🙂
