Interior painting is complete, and the installation of cabinets, tile, and wood trim is under way. Seeing cabinets in place gives a much better idea of what the house will be like.
Meanwhile, Island County, in its wisdom, has thrown us a curve ball. They say that some of the wetlands mitigation (removing some bushes and planting others) must be done in order to get final approval of the house. We had planned to wait until the house was done, so that the landscapers wouldn’t have to work around the builders.
Last week the landscapers took out the blackberries in front of the house, which does open up the front a lot. Next they’ll plant enough bushes to make the county happy.
