The hole outside the egress window was dug today. I think it's finished, except for whatever structure they have to put in it to hold the dirt back. Fortunately, it wasn't extremely cold or windy today, so I didn't have to feel too bad for the workman who was in the backyard all day.
The drain pipe trenches in the bathroom and from the bathroom to the composting unit were covered with cement. That leaves the huge area behind that composter to be filled in.
This is the beginning of the soffit that will cover the existing ductwork.
The plan, as I know it at this time, is that the men will work through midday on Thursday. They hope to have the room to the point where we can paint. Then they will come back after New Year's to finish up. I'm not certain whether they will have the bathroom in working order, or the flooring done before Christmas. I will speak to the contractor myself this afternoon.
I am so ready for this project to be done!
