New South Lapham Land: "The completion of the cellar stairs was a major feat. As they said ,'third time is the charm'. Thats our motto. The utilities were installed this week. Electric though temp on pole, its power. The rough in on plumbing is done, and thats another story, is being inspected tomorrow . All doors are now in, we are ready for the floods. The front wall which we left open for light is enclosed. As the days are drawing closer to the 22nd, I am shifting my attention to wedding details. Pete and Rye will attempt the deck and siding. Thats the wrap for this week. OH!!! forgot to mention it rained all day here today. Awww cooler temps and end of some of the dust!!!!"
New South Lapham Land: August 2007: "As we are all familair with the 1960's show 'Green Acres', the carpenters names were Ralph the female and Alf the male...well Alf and I have completed phase one of the house. Rising daily for the last 3 days at 5am and working till 1230 we did it and beat the heat except for last 2 and 1/2 hours. Whew!!!! Green Mountain coffee to jump start us and Gaterade to keep us revived."
