Another busy day at The Minnie House. Kenny the Excavator was back with a bang, digging a 40 foot trench for our gas, electric, phone and cable internet services, and I spent far too long on the phone trying unsuccessfully to get both AT&T and Comcast to send their engineers out to lay the cables. I wouldn't mind but I don't even want AT&T's lousy stinking phone service, I just figured it's something you need to enable when building a new house.
While Kenny was wreaking havoc to the landscape with his Bobcat, Jose and Emilio were inside the house figuring out the best way to install seventeen IKEA Akurum kitchen cabinets - six on the wall, seven on the ground, and six in the island. It's a slow process yet within a day or two they'll be able to move on to the bathroom mirror cabinets and vanities. The house is not too many days away from being a home.
As you can see from the last photo, a third crew was also working today: Doty Plastering and Drywall, who are the gentlemen entrusted with applying dark grey stucco to the basement walls. By the end of the day they had already nailed up weatherproof paper and chicken wire, so perhaps the acrylic finish will be ready for its close-up by the end of the week.
