Hey all, just a quick update as to what's happening with us. Other than keeping more than busy, just putting up with the rain.
But, we have made much progress since our last post. We finally have all the heat down in the entire house. As you can see in our newly added pics, we went with an above the subfloor radiant heat system on the first floor. Its a really neat system. It's made up of alumninum tracks in which the pex tubing is snapped in place. It has plywood returns made then for each of the returns. It went together fairly easy and works really well. The panels are very responsive to the heat and heat up quickly. Our HVAC buddy was over and got the other three zones hooked up, and we are in operation!
As you can also see, we started getting some more of the interior lighting installed and did a little work in the second floor bathroom. We have just about all the high trim hung in the house, and will need to get working on the baseboard sometime once all the floors are done. Of which, all the carpet and vinyl (sorry on pics yet, too rainy and no good lighting) is down and we started working on the wood floors a little over a week ago. We've made quick progress on the them, and just have a little work to do in the closets. Hopefully they will be finished by this weekend and we will be ready to put finish on them.
The wood floors are a reclaimed pine which we got from Wyoming. It's actually reclaimed snow fence and looks really good in the house. There are a number of different shades of colors in the wood, and once they were all put together, they look really good. We found the wood online, they sent us a sample and we fell in love with it.

Take a peak at the pics and see what you think. Let us know, reviews have been good so far!
We'll continue to post some more as we go. One point of note, nails and pex tubing don't mix. Oops, have one repair to make!
