Building the Elk Grove House Pic #11

In addition to some progress on the outside over the last week, a lot has been accomplished on the inside. The kitchen counter tops and floor, laundry room counters and floor, the entry way, and one of the bathrooms. It is still hard to believe that it is supposed to be done by June 20, only a little more than two weeks.

Building the Elk Grove House Pic #10

To my disappointment, the outside of the house has not changed much in the last two weeks. On the inside a lot has changed in the last week, the walls have been painted, the moldings, windowsills and railings installed and painted, and the cabinets have all been installed. It is hard to believe that the house is supposed to be completed in 24 days!

Building the Elk Grove House Pic #7

For the first time in seven weeks, the outside view of the house has not changed much. Nevertheless, the inside has changed a lot. The electrical and plumbing were finished and the house was sheet rocked. You can see the sheet rock in the garage…

2000 Spring Training Day 2

This was probably one of my favorite spring training days.  We did not have tickets for a game, but decided to go to Hohokam and buy some outfield grass tickets.  On a beautiful Arizona day, we laid in the outfield, watched Kerry Wood pitch and had Sosa hit a home run about 20 feet from us.  Wallen, Tomasin and I spent a couple of innings leaning against a wall on the third base side discussing the meaning of life.

Building the Elk Grove House Pic #1

Drew, Morgan, Jack and I stopped at the site on the way to Davis to see Keith play baseball and have dinner with the Snipes.
