When I drive down to Deland last Monday the first thing I did was make a list of all of the remaining items that needed to be completed to declare this house ‘done’. I then laid them out into a schedule since my plan was to have everything wrapped up for the open house that I was hosting on the following Saturday. All the items fit in nicely on my little piece of paper that turned out to be my fantasy work schedule. On the end of the first day I was already reworking my list and dropping things off. The interior work is just so slow because of the detail that goes into all of the various trim pieces.
I worked feverously up until the first person showed up on Saturday. I brought a change of clothes specifically for the open house so that I could look a little more professional but instead I looked like a homeless man who had just run 3 miles. Despite my dishevelment I really enjoyed the day as I got to talk to a few people about a topic I really enjoy.
I completed most of the interior except for sealing and staining the walls and installing the cabinets.
I’ll post a video once I get it edited which has some interior shots.
Among the visitors on Saturday was Alex from tinyhousetalk.com. He brought his camera along so look for some cool video coming from him at his site.
