Speaking of multitasking....

Andrew seems to have a bright new career ahead in plumbing and lighting. For anyone interested in the gory reno details, scroll through this email he sent off this morning when the plumber had questions about which toilet goes where. All of these fixtures have been sourced and bought by us, mostly Andrew, truth be told.

Also, last night Keith asked for a detailed lighting plan for the kitchen and Andrew sent him this and these this morning.

....He also designed the kitchen.... and the whole main floor reconfiguration. With just a suggestion or two from me. ; )

We're juggling many details right now, and Andrew is keeping it all straight. He might just need a new career soon (thanks for your patience, Dave).https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_Ez8Vkt7D59MkRkYjZ3VzRJN1E/edit?usp=sharing

24 people.

How is it possible to get all this done in 24 days? By multi-tasking. Steve just emailed to say there are TWENTY-FOUR people in the house right now! Plumbers, Electricians, Carpenters, Plasterer, Labour. What a feat of management!

It seemed crowded and noisy when we went by last night and there were only 7or 8 guys there then!

couple here.

couple more up there.

I don't know how there's room for 24 today. They must be tripping over each other!

The girls are finding all the nooks and crannies (under the basement stairs)

....and being very patient!

As are the neighbours: it was noisy there at 8 o'clock last night!

....and amidst all the clamour, a little Mary Poppins. Thank you, iPad!
