    Sorry I have been away for so long. Computer problems.

    COVID-19 delaying the house. My family and I are fine cooped up in the rental double-wide. The builder is only allowed two workers at a time at the house, but feels lucky to be allowed to do even that. Looks like moving day may not be until the 4th of July weekend (I hope!)

    Well, the garage doors are mounted... Finally! Naturally that means I can't take interior photos except through the windows now.

    seems the city was looking at their budget, and decided now was a safe time to start opening things up :whistle:

    The yard for one thing :cool:.

    But that probably isn't preventing the next steps :whistle:.

    Good luck with the closing (y).

    Still waiting for the plumber and electrician to finish. Also awaiting the arrival of some of the appliances. I'm in almost daily contact with the builder now.
