Seems like things have slowed down (unfortunately). Currently, we are waiting for the counter contractor to install countertops. Once complete, sink/fixtures go in.
We are finished with the electrical and final inspection is scheduled (at which time we'll move the refrigerators out of the meeting room).
Still need to do a small amount of cabinet work and mount the microwave/fan.
Last, little stuff - various touch ups, replace the paneling in the hallway, add trim, etc.
I do appreciate all your patience.

Understanding The Wealth Gap
We hear a lot
about it. The wealthier get
wealthier, the rest get poorer. Our
economy is driven by spending. Take
away people's ability to spend
(read- living wages) and our economy
falters. Now, ever wonder exactly
what the wealth gap is?
This article explains it in detail. Take a look.
