Time away ..... and interior photos

We are pushing to finish enough on our house to the the certificate of Occupancy "CO" in late July or early August. This has meant many late nights working on the house.

Now I am forced to spend about a week and a half off of the project. Right now I am sitting in the lobby at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston waiting for a room mix up to be taken care of. I am here for 5 nights for the Endocrine Society Meeting. The meeting has nothing to do with home improvement except to give time for the ole' body to mend itself from the various bumps and bruises over the last few months. After that it is off to the beach for a few nights with Stephanie, the boys and her parents. This will be the first break we have had from the project in over a year.

It will be interesting to check out our old house in Quincy (south of Boston) to see if it still exists in the shape and form that we left it in about 5-6 years ago. At the time it was one of the last small Bungalows (c.a. 1900) that had not been changed into a 2 story Dutch Colonial.

Okay ... here are the obligatory house pictures. These are some of the interior shots of the second story timber portion of the house. Once the frame was up it started to look more like an abstract representation of the trees that the timbers were cut from. Once we have the dry wall up un the walls there will be a great back drop for the frame.

Well ... the hotel room has been worked out. More updates soon.
