We got a good, close-up look at the neighborhood hawk, a Cooper's Hawk. He was sitting on a tree just outside.
In the meantime, work has continued on tiling, electric, and various fun stuff. Dan dug up the yard to lay line for plumbing and electrical. Ilana has been painting. Neither of them particularly enjoys either job, but somebody's gotta do 'em!
We are getting close...

Dan spent a lot of time working on the stairs. We also got drywall delivered and insulation installed. I took some last pictures of the house sans drywall.
Oh yeah, and the last picture is of the set up that Dan--he of the electrical engineering degree--has for his office area =D

Windows are next. These are the windows waiting in the garage. Dan installed several over the weekend, so we will update the site once he has taken some pictures.
Along with that, I installed a new addition to our alarm system, a motion detector in the garage (so keep your grubby paws off our windows! =D)
We had two fireplaces installed, a wood-burning one in the family room and a gas one directly above it in the master suite. The one in the master suite will be remote-controlled! How cool is that?
Speaking of cool, the temperature dropped way down the last couple of days. Poor Dan has been working at the house, surrounded by his electricians and HVAC dudes. Brrr...
