Progress - Day 44

The past two weeks have been full of ups and downs.

We passed the electrical inspection on Friday but it was a week later than we originally thought. It took us a LOT longer than expected to run the almost 300 m of wiring required to bring our house up to code. And we still have to do the basement!

The furnace finally arrived on Wednesday and Lennox was kind enough to give us a $300 high-end filter to compensate for the delay. But in the meantime, our HVAC installer disappeared and we were forced to search for an installer all over again. Although it was a bit of a headache to find a new installer, it seems as though it may have actually been a blessing in disguise as we have since found out the first installer may have been planning to cut some serious corners.

Finally some good news in regards to the missing windows - they have been moved up the production schedule and are now scheduled to arrive December 15th. I am not going to get too excited until the windows are actually at our doorstep but at least we have postitive progress for the first time in months.

Despite the all of the trials, we have FINALLY reached our first major milestone... Tomorrow morning the crew will arrive to begin installing the spray foam insulation. By the end of the week our house will be all warm and blue inside!
