Notes, 13 Feb. 2016

Noemi and her team began cleaning up Emerald Hill, getting it ready for Jacquela, Jadin and Steven to move in.

We are about to start the move-in countdown.

Noemi and her team took the protective cardboard off the stairs, cleaned up the construction mess, to reveal a work of art -- hickory risers and treads, steel balusters and handrail, stair lights recessed into the wall.

In this Saturday chapter, Jacquela and Steven:

  • Donated more boxes and bags of stuff to Goodwill, continuing to clean out Sea Eagle.
  • As we sorted, we set aside a notebook in which Jadin drew pictures of Reboot. We miss our dog.
  • Assembled the wire shelving for the pantry at Emerald Hill.

  • Visited Lowe’s to check out ceiling fans.
  • Discovered bumpers for the steel shelving in the pantry at the Container Store — along with plastic liners for each shelf.
  • Began boxing up artwork, taking down shelves and patching walls at Sea Eagle.
  • Came up with a potential solution to hide the tankless water heaters — a shoji screen or ceiling-mounted sliding door for the mudroom, and a ceiling-mounted folding door for the laundry room.
