The barn is moving along. The plumbers and HVAC guys have been here for rough-ins all week. Both are at a stopping point, and are waiting on something else (electric and framing) before they can finish. The electricians are coming back out today, and the framing should be completed next Monday, so hopefully they can finish up early next week and I can get the inspections scheduled. I'm REALLY nervous about the framing and pre-lath inspections though, because I've already had lots of problems with getting the permit changes (I'll be back at the building department either this afternoon or tomorrow). Hopefully if it fails for anything, it will be minor because I'd REALLY like to get that passed before Thanksgiving week so that in December we can just move along with the insulation and drywall and knock this thing out! Between dealing with the lawyer issues, scheduling and overseeing plumbing, HVAC, electric, framing, landscaping, security system installation, permit issues, independent inspections, DirecTV, and getting additional quotes, and starting to paint the animals in the kids' playroom, this has already been another ridiculously busy week, but A LOT has gotten done too!
P.S. Anyone remember who sings the song "Movin' Right Along" from our (or at least my) childhood without following this link? I wonder if Annabelle and Corgan would like watching that yet?
