Halfway there!

Our pipes are half done!  The pipes on our property are done - brand spanking new copper for us!  w00t!

The city portion should be starting on Monday-ish?!  Already we see a slight water pressure increase, but the big increase will be later this week.  Yay!!!

Here is a fancy collage of how the work went (courtesy of Mr. So).  Those two guys were very industrious workers!  It made the basement VERY DIRTY, but it is mostly back to status quo now.

Ok, now it is on to Christmas decorations!  Yay!  I've brought out all the Christmas versions of things, I just need my nice husband to help putting up the lights!  Yahoo!  And maybe we'll put up outdoor lights now that we're owners not renters?!?  We shall see. 

Update on the siding:  No word yet.  They were supposed to come a week or two ago...but I have faith they'll do it eventually.  I am expecting it before Christmas!

Even more exciting news

So in the last week or so, we went from this:
To this!
The colour doesn't show up really very well in the is actually darker, more...gray-ish??  (Jeanne can vouch for it!)  We're ready for the closet to be put together now!  As you can see, part of the closet has already migrated upstairs.  Yay!

And the even more exciting news??  We're getting our PLUMBING FIXED!!!  YEEEEEEHAAAAAWWWW!  Turns out, they will begin fixing the city portion of the pipes TOMORROW.  Neat!  We called up the company, a dude turned up this evening, gave us a quote and told us our water pressure woes will be done by next week (after an exchange of some money)!  Or sometime thereabouts.

You will then be all welcome to come over and flush the downstairs toliet while I am upstairs in the bathroom - no more three minutes of freezing cold while puffs of air come out of the faucet.  Huzzah!
