Our ducting and heat pump installation is complete.  We have several items we need to fix but the contractors are gone and not coming back.  We're not entirely satisfied but we don't need to turn on the system for awhile.  As Chris said, "we didn't pay for the white glove service" so I guess we got what we paid for. 

My parents came down this weekend to help out.  Chris and my dad worked on some final framing/flooring items and installed a lot of drywall.  Chris was also off work yesterday due to the snow so he was able to finish up a lot more.  Here are some before/after shots of the space:

While the boys were upstairs, my mom and I worked on spring cleaning and pre-baby nesting.  There was a lot of sorting through stuff and it wasn't fun.  We did a good cleaning of each room to remove the dust from the HVAC work.  It's nice to have it mostly finished!

On Saturday, I went to get my hair chopped off for donation.  These aren't the best pictures but it shows how much I had removed.

Here are some pictures of Samantha from this week.  She loves hoarding her toys.

She had fun using puffy paint.

She was great at color sorting cereal on shamrocks.


 And she enjoyed the snow cream I made yesterday after our bit snowfall.

This week should be spent upstairs with a lot of drywall compound and possibly painting this weekend (I'll keep my fingers crossed!).

  1. Samantha looks so cute! However, the behavior of the contractors was indeed infuriating. What exactly went wrong, if I may ask? They didn't finish the job properly? It seems that you and Chris were able to handle it anyway. Nevertheless, that's still not a good way to treat a client. I hope what they did end up finishing is in good condition, and that you get a good contractor on your next project!
