Was it obvious that your cat was possessed by Satan before this project?

It's a gas fireplace. The unit is sitting in my garage right now getting ready to be installed.

It definitely looks like it's coming along.  And it's interesting to see some of the differences in building techniques from here on the east coast to how things are done in California in order to adhere to the stricter building codes.  The concrete work alone looks much better from what we normally get here.

One thing about the gas fireplaces:  they're really nice and they are super-convenient.  After all, who wants firewood piled up next to the house?  But the gas fireplaces can really put a serious dent into your natural gas bill if you aren't careful.

The gas fireplace with be used mostly for setting rather than heating. We don't get very cold here in southern California. Nice thing is we are getting a state of the art gas heater for the upstairs attic and new duct work and insulation that should offset any increase in cost. This frees up space in the garage for our new food storage closet. We also have a tankless waterheater so my gas bills are extremely low. Currently my highest gas bill has only been about $30 since the tankless was installed two years ago.

However, my kids are very concerned that the house will have no chimney. How is Santa Claus going get in???

Moving day. Moving the piano across the street to its temporary home. We got our workers to move it for us.

Black paper put up for the siding. New windows through out the house.








Rooms are extended about two feet to make room for the hallway to the back of the house. Most of the eletrical wires are in for the new additions.

Mind tricks don't work on her. Negotiations were short. I get my Star Wars office. She gets a front room conservatory for her new grand piano.
