We’re a house! With a living roof!

I went out of town for a few days, and came back to see a HUGE difference in the laneway house.

Inside, the drywall has been put up and mudded.

Looking south in the upper storey:

See the rolled steel cladding on the outside deck?

And although the outside still has not received the final siding, there have been many changes

Today you can see how far the hardscaping has come:

The power still has not been connected to the laneway.  All the electricity to run the dryers and de-humidifiers that ready the drywall for painting have to be run with extension cords plugged in to different circuits in the main house (so they don’t overload each circuit and trip the breaker).

The great push will ensure that the Vancouver Heritage Foundation‘s laneway tour will see our little house in good form.  Have you bought your tickets yet?  It’s a great way to see the most laneway houses in the least expense of time.

Remember, there’s still a lot to be done in a short amount of time (losing a day on Monday for Thanksgiving Day).  The interior has to be painted and the flooring and tiling completed, the kitchen cupboards must be installed and the exterior siding must be put on.  The lights have to be connected, too.  So everyone is putting in extra hours to make it all come together.

The front door is open, but just give us a chance to straighten up the place inside.
