We now have power in our house, limited power but we are connected.

Mike was here at 8 to get things ready for the actual connections between batteries and solar panels.

Then about 9 Darrell arrived with the necessary cable.

No idea why everyone is staring at the pail on the top of the post but obviously it has something to do with our solar system.

This will give you an idea of the kitchen arrangement. The tall cabinet to the left of the frig has doors missing which we hope to get this weekend when we are in Toronto.

Today Ben assembled the cabinets for our walk-in closet. I think he was glad to see the last of them by the end of the day.

I assembled the drawers to go inside the cabinets. Next week we want to complete them and start using them.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone. How's the truck driving Tony?
