House Project: Toilets In, Lighting Fixtures & Switches Going In

We went by the house today to show my daughter and son-in-law its current state. When they were last down here, there was no driveway--we had to walk from the road to the building site--which at that point was still untouched. The plumber has been up there in the last few days--toilets are now installed in all three bathrooms, and the water heater is now in place. At least if I drag Big Bertha up there for night observing (assuming that we don't get continual cloud cover now), there will be a toilet available.

As we were getting ready to leave, the electrician showed up with a bunch of light switches and outlets; he was getting ready to start installing everything.

The original plan was to put motion detector light switches in all the bedrooms, but I don't know where we got the notion that these could be purchased for about $10 each. The electrician reports that they are $28 each, so we are having him install conventional light switches.

The weather is becoming wintry; there was a light dusting of snow on the north face of the property (the one overlooking Horseshoe Bend). This evening here in Boise we had a real genuine snowfall.
