State of the Union

It's been a bit since we last updated this thing. So I'll just give everyone a little something to think about.

Basement Developement
We're just finishing up some of the estimates which are highlighting some of the major restrictions we now have to work with.

$2200 to move the rough plumbing for the bathroom, except we can't move it where we want it.

$2500 to move the ducting, but we probably would need to buy a new high efficiency furnace to move it where we want.

So costs to get a bathroom with fixtures and a 7 foot ceiling in an undeveloped basement already cost $10,000 - $15,000. Then we would actually have to finish the basement.

Starting to think of only developing half the basement and converting the main floor bathroom into a full bath and putting the laundry in the basement, expect laundy in the basement isn't real popular with me and guests/Hunter would have to come upstairs to use the bathroom.

We do have a LARGE desk for the basement office, if we get one. I think it weights 1,000,000,000 pounds. It took 3 of us to get it into the basement it's never moving again.

Growing. I think I saw a list of things Nicole is/has purchased on the desk. That might be what happens when you leave town?

The Job
Really enjoying the new job. Not actually have to produce anything is pretty slick. The travel isn't maybe my favorite, and I know it isn't Nicole's. Two Edmonton trips plus a day's commute to Vancouver this month.

We are getting into some serious work on redesigning It should be an exciting process. The project has a lot of zero's behind the price tag and needs to be done in just over 5 months. So we'll see what happens there.

We might be done. It's supposed to snow this weekend and we had given some thought to doing one last trip before the forecast was in. I'm not ready to winterize the trailer just yet, but I think it's false hope.
