Tax Trip to Royal Oak - Saturday, February 27, 2016

Left early this morning to have breakfast with Iris before doing my taxes with Cora. I got a shock because my taxes went up. I'll have a nice chat with Matt to see what, if anything, we can do. The rich have all kinds of ways to hide their money. Seems unfair.

Darin's crew (Greg, Michael, and Jimmy) has come up every day this week except Thursday because of the 12" of snow we got then. Justin and his buddy came and worked on the electricity on Friday. Electrical inspection should be Monday. Justin had also done electrical work for me in Royal Oak. Justin was pleased to discover that the wiring was partially in place for the new room because we had planned from the get-go to have a room added. There is a separate circuit breaker box in the basement for the geothermal system - for which we get a slightly reduced electrical rate.

If we pass the electrical inspection, it's perhaps time for the insulation.

While I was gone today, Greg and Darin worked all day on the outside of the new sitting room. It's looking good. Clicking on photos enlarges them.

Even though we had a lot of snow only two days ago, much of it has melted - which is normal for snow this time of year. The days are getting longer and things are warming up.

Darin wants to match the metal roof on the addition to the metal roof on the house and has been searching for the exact match. He finally found the place in Bad Axe which produced the current roof. Yay!
