Cabinet doors are a success!

Successfully hung one today - and these are a true Mustachian success - homemade Shaker-style doors, hinges from secondhand-building-supply, and a few bits of wood and shim. 

Less successful is the AC unit.  The old one was sliding off the roof, and the options were crane-stand-reattached-crappy-unit or crane+stand+new+unit, I opted for the new unit.  It blows very nice and cold, and the new thermostat seems to read true.  Now we just have to deal with the unexpected cost.

In the new house

Have spent two nights there - found a leak or two this morning in our torrential rainstorm - hooray for summer rains where I can do roof patching in a swimsuit.  No more water ingress after the wet-patch was globbed on to the offending penetration (it was the gas line for the HVAC).

Did find a major crack between the cold-air-outlet duct and the air handler, so we are blowing cold air into the sky - will fix ASAP.  The definition of P remains to be determined.

Much left to do, but now I don't have to drive to the jobsite!

Not quite dead!

Actually, we are cleaning the concrete floors today (lots of construction dust), and we aim to sleep at the house tomorrow night.  It might mess up our church commute... we'll have to see.
