Bill Coperthwaite has a nice quote about one's house being finished only on the day one dies.
My wife and I have designed and built it together, with some help from two fabulous apprentices for a couple of months over the last two summers.

We'll be heating it with wood in a masonry heater, which hasn't been built yet - maybe next year?
Until then we have a second-hand Vermont Castings wood stove.

Right now I have to get back to hanging sheet rock and packing.
