Dream House: week 15

A lot has gone on over the last two weeks at the dream house. We got cinder block columns...

And in a few days our beautiful stone started to creep over them. I have a serious crush on this stone. I heart it big time!

We had a lot of this going on.

Which of course led to this.

It was insulation and duct work city as the hvac crew went to work.

On Saturday we did a walk through with the electrician which called for lots of measuring and so forth.

Let me tell you, it is somewhat stressful to try to think of where you might need an electrical outlet in ten years. I was standing in the craft room pondering where I might need to plug in a glue gun over the course of the next 50 years, and then I realized, this is why they invented extension cords.

Skeeter's face pretty well describes mine after the whole experience - kinda worn out but still silly enough to stick out my tongue.

In other news, any tech gurus want to help me figure out why I can't upload my house video? It was shot on a Canon Rebel T3 DSLR  and is a pretty hefty 1.7 gigabytes. YouTube won't take it as a .mov file (comes up with an error message after taking - I am not kidding - 24 hours to upload) and when I import it into movie maker, it looks great until it's published - after which it takes on a weird jumpy rainbow overlay that makes it pretty impossible to watch. Advice?
