As the Egg hasn’t been doing any rolling the last couple of months, it made for lots of time for house building. We usually worked on it at least four days a week. Finished the outside siding, primed all the raw wood, and got it painted. The pictures were taken on two different days. One cloudy and dull, the other was bright sun.
All the sheetrock finished. and the subfloor screwed down. Air conditioning system also installed and will be working within a few days.
Cabinets built in kitchen and bathroom, along with outlets and switches being installed.
Step stringers were cut out and installed with some temporary treads. Sure beats a concrete block.
We have had lots of rain the past three weeks or so, but thankfully we had completed most of the outside before it arrived.
The power company finally showed up to set a pole and connect our meter. Our old generator was mighty glad to see them. Some have asked why we didn’t get a temporary service pole so we would have power from the beginning. The power company charges to provide the temporary service, and then charges again to move it to the house. Just didn’t want to pay them twice.
With all that work behind me, I hope we can get the Casita back on the road this weekend. Wanda’s moms situation is improving daily, and we plan to hear for Crockett, Texas on Saturday. There’s a gathering of fiberglass trailers near there which we have registered for. Really looking forward to seeing that little white trailer in my rear view mirror, again. Also looking forward to seeing lots of friends again.
From there? Who knows???……jc
