Gas grill works great. Susan is grilling veggies, and we also grilled some almond crusted flounder.

Amish Country

Here are a few pictures of Susan's new craft table; we had it custom made in northern Indiana's Amish country, also depicted here. Three beds, one dresser, one computer table, one office chairs, eight plastic lawn chairs, five plastic end tables, Susan's sewing machine cabinet, her craft table and some assorted small items (including Addy's and Elena's play table and chairs) were crafted in small workshops adjacent to the homes shown here.

Upstairs Balcony

Now you can see what the upstairs balcony railing looks like - those are stained locust posts holding up black metal, child-safe railings. In this picture you can also see the door to one of the guest rooms, and the linen closet. The staircase to the 2nd floor is on the right - it is open to the ceiling and has two landings, for easy access.

We have granite!!

Granite was installed yesterday, so now all the sinks are in, as well as the gas counter-top range. Lots of details still, but occupancy inspection is scheduled for Friday. We went to Spruce Pine yesterday to purchase mattresses, which will be delivered next Tuesday. We also have the furniture scheduled for delivery next week, and we may move that up to coordinate with the mattresses.
