Electric, and Plumbing, and Trim, oh my!

Today I was fortunate enough to have a hearing in Colorado County and had the opportunity to pop by the house and check the progress.  So much was going on!  But it was raining cats and dogs so the pictures are a little gloomy.

The walls in the mudroom were cut to install the new breaker box.  We have to have two now because the original did not have nearly enough connections for the new systems (including the A/C and hot water heater).

Also in the mudroom, the plumber has installed new connections for the washing machine.

That's a lot wire.

In the breakfast nook, the window sills and the windows have already been at least partially stripped and re-installed.

And this, my friends, is a new flange for the toilet.  This may not seem very exciting to you, but this is really exciting for those of us who piled into a car and drove into town to go to the bathroom last summer.

Also in the bathroom, the shiplap walls were cut back to install the plumbing for the tub/shower.

In the sleeping room, most of the trim and window frames have been stripped and re-installed.

The plugs have been wired...

 As have the light switches.

Where the sink used to be, a section has been cut to install the new plumbing lines.

And near where the fridge is going to go, more shiplap has been removed, but I'm not quite sure why. In any event, you can see the old chimney a little better.

In the master bedroom, the guys were hard at work stripping the baseboards.

They had already re-installed some of the windows and trim in the master bedroom.

That's all from Wisteria Bend for now.
