Hello folks, We have water and heat and solar power hooked up. We passed the electrical inspection on Fri and will have final inspection and blower test for R 2000 on Fri. We'll do some touch up painting on Wed. NSCC will complete a little trim work on Thurs or Fri. Merry Maid services completed a total clean up today. Our ETS installer will connect a timer for the ETS and then........ It's time to turn over the keys on Sat. Denise from Habitat NS has prepared the agenda for Sat. Things have really fallen into place. We're having a thank you gathering for NSCC students Wed at 4 pm at Paddy's Pub in Wolfville. Drop by if you can. Hope to see all of you on Sat at 2pm. Bring friends and family.

Here's the latest on our build. Painting is mostly complete. A pro from from Windsor should finish it all tomorrow. Kitchen cabinets as well as upstairs bathroom vanities are installed. Flooring is not quite finished. We needed more flooring for one basement bedroom. It will be in shortly. Also waiting for two doors that have been ordered. Will be here next Tues. NSCC will return next Week to finish off front deck, flooring ,trim, doors anything else that needs doing. Our electrician will return next week to complete all electrical work. Plumbing and heating crew will also be on site next week to finish up their part. Solar heat and Nu Air installation will follow when we're ready. John and I are planning on finishing the front walkway tomorrow. Hopefully the washers and dryers, fridges and stoves will arrive tomorrow as well. Will keep you posted.The end is near!! - Greg

All insulation was blown in the attic yesterday and the NSCC crew will continue work on trim, stairs flooring,cabinets and decks. Most interior doors are hung.
Our electrician will start installing lights fixtures plugs etc, next week. We'll hopefully be ready for all plumbing and heating connections by the end of the month. Once the water is connected we'll finally finish our landscaping.
Things look really great and our amazing crew of students are making great progress.
I don't want to suggest when we'll be totally finished. As you know I've done that before and been very wrong. All I'll say is .....we're close!!
Kenny Cogswell ,our dry wall person made an interesting comment to me today. He said that when Gerry invited him and his team to pitch in and help us out ,he was honoured. Does this not once again describe the feelings of many folks who decide to get involved with Habitat. Thanks Kenny!!
