Our House Diary #63: If all goes well….Feb. 3, 2017

We are in the last stages before the big move day of Feb 8. If all goes well, there will be one more post prior to the move, and then you should be able to see the Our House being transported and placed on the slab…..I have to admit, I am a little nervous!!

We are tidying up loose ends and accomplishing some tasks previously not planned for, so I suppose that is a good thing.

The bathroom cabinets have been installed:

…with the countertops:

We have also been making and installing cupboard shelves:

….and the final touch-ups are done by Stephane:


…we made gable stud walls to facilitate a fast installation on site:


…and we have been covering the units without roofs to make them as waterproof as possible for their sojourn outside before the transport to the site:

…using insulation that needs to go over to the build as temporary ridge poles and re-using the tarps from the other stages of the build.

I believe my last post before move day will be on Tuesday as I document the initial preparation for the tucking. We will move the units outside so that they can be easily picked up by the transport company on the big day…..we hope, there are weather concerns that have to be taken into consideration.

Cross your fingers!! I am!
