It's official. Albany has confirmed that the Dejoux house smoke tree is the official county and state champion Smoketree..."now on to nationals!" They say they will be putting the tree forward for "national recognition".
This weekend was truly a landmark day at the house. Firstly, this was the first day in over 12 months that we haven't been able to look from the kitchen up into the master bedroom. Yes, the floor boards arrived and now we have a floor/ceiling. The match of the new boards was pretty good. I could not ask for a better match.
As you can see from some of these photos we have also started putting up the sheet-rock and the shape of the rooms are coming together. Don't worry the green isn't staying. The sheet rock is mold resistant and comes in this green color. Plastering in a weeks time we hope.
Other progress this week includes the turning on of the geothermal heating. The main system is up and running and the house was 65 degrees. The second half of the system will be working on Thursday of this week (hopefully) and we will be well on our way. The plumber says he can get a working toilet in the place by next weekend....WoooooooHoooooooooo
