Well, hard to say. The windows are going in but slowly. The stone floor is mostly there but not quite. The kitchen is on order, maybe a month from completion but, the way this project is going, maybe a little more than that. The shower door guy hasn’t bothered to get back to me. Will the really excellent painter show up to get the bits that he didn’t do last summer? Probably not, though probably whoever does paint out the house will be pretty good. My current best guess is that the house will wrap up — just Phase One, no landscape or anything — in May, about a year behind schedule.
Meantime I am here for a class and a visit to my favorite museums in London: the John Soane Museum and the V&A. I guess we must being getting close to the finish because I have no need to shop for house parts. It’s not a bad way to pass the time. The danger is that eventually I’ll do enough of it that I’ll wonder why I started the house in the first place.
