December 22, 2010: Not a carpenter was stirring...

We're getting ready to leave for our trip, and Eric folks are getting ready for their Christmas parties, so it's a sabbath rest for the house. Enjoying some family time...

December 19, 2010: The Moat

It was always a joke that we would build a moat around the house...

...guess God was in on the joke as well!

Looks like we're gonna rethink the side yard and the concrete slab so that the a/c units don't get flooded out. Thanks for the advance warning, Jesus!

December 18, 2010: Cedar Closet!

Eric adjusted the above-the-refrigerator cabinet door so that it would close.

He also lined the backs of my closet shelves with cedar planks. Mmm, it smells so nice!

Bennett is watching and helping (because you know he likes to hang out in my bright, fragrant room!).

Here's a glimpse of the mirror to be installed in the guest bathroom:

And here he is, **shhh!** {praying} again... ;)

...and not that he's not doing a fabulous, meticulous job... it's just good to know that he's humble about it.

December 17, 2010: Light Fixtures

Eric alternated today between the pantry...

...and working with Bobby to relaminate the island fixture.

Colin and Bobo installed light fixtures in the master bathroom and the kitchen.

December 16, 2010: Shower Fixtures

Eric is getting in the Christmas Spirit... he's even resorted to praying! (Shh! Don't tell him I said that.)

The corner cabinet door is finally installed...

...and the Wolf stovetop uncovered.

Here is a close-up of the exterior front window detail.

More fun with the faucets...

A little more painting...

And a new glimpse at the photo with which you all have become quite familiar...

Sorry... it was the only Christmas decoration our house would see this year since we are going to Florida to visit my family.

Oh, yeah! The shower fixtures! Guest bathroom...

...and master bathroom (not yet including the hand-held fixture).

December 15, 2010: Vince Visits

Eric helped Tony install the drains under the bathroom vanities. Because of the way they were made, Eric had to do some reinforcing and some creative design. Beautiful work.

Tony also installed the drains in the kitchen.

Fun with faucets...

The painters did some more painting...

Aaaannnnddd... Vince FINALLY paid us a visit!

I think he enjoyed himself!
