Inch by inch

Finish trim awaits
This is the phase of construction that is sheer agony. So near... and yet so far. And so far there's still a lot to be done. But today's visit coincided with the arrival of the Kentucky bluegrass sod, due to be laid this afternoon. Tomorrow the appliances arrive. But interior trim is only beginning and cannot be finished until the interior doors arrive. Both the plumbers and the electricians need to return at least once more to complete their respective work, the bluestone has yet to arrive for the walkway and the countertops need to be ordered, fabricated and installed. At the moment one wishes to summon a squadron, a platoon, a brigade or a small nation's army and start issuing orders. Alas, that is not how it works. One's best ammunition is patience. But this is what I saw today:

The mirrors arrive tomorrow

Grading is done and sodding is underway

Awaiting appliances and countertops
