Wow! Condo's really coming along now.

Welcome to 411 Meadow Lane.

Got my soaker tub installed!

I’ll be using the guest bathroom.

Condo interior coming together! Shingles done.

The trusses go up and the roof goes on.

 Shingling started on the roof.

 Patio doors are in.

 The paper on the floor shows where the dining room table goes 
so they can put the chandelier right above it.

 Master bedroom is huge!

The corner fireplace is in the living room. Builder Frank Hanig on left.

 Patio and the roof are shingled.

 Half wall in the den by stairway leading to the basement.

 Susan’s craft studio in the basement has an egress window and lots of light.

Bentley Oregano Basil and Parsley Seeds

I planted the seeds in pots on the patio because we will be moving in October. Unfortunately, the squirrels dug into the dirt to hide their nuts, and none of the seeds germinated.

Maybe the packaging should warn gardeners that seeds should be protected from rodents prior to germination. I tried putting nylon netting over the pots, but it was too late.

More roof done

The roof sheeting is going on. Next week we will have a walk-through with the builder, realtor, electrician, and cabinetmaker to make sure everything goes where we want it.

Below Carl paints the storm cellar light gray to cover the water stains. The paint has an anti-microbial agent to seal the water stains.
