Busy, busy, busy!

I haven’t been able to blog much lately–too busy with the remodel! I took a “vacation” from my regular job last week so that I could devote all my efforts to the addition. I’ll post more on the project status later (hopefully tonight), but right now the only thing I’ll mention is my telephone/internet connection. When we finally got our [telephone service underground](http://sonicchicken.net/blog/wordpress/2007/06/14/remodel-week-9/), I jury-rigged our existing telephone line by running a cable through one of the window openings. But last week we got our windows installed so I had to do something else. We had other, higher-priority projects to work on, so I just disconnected the phone line and figured I’d get around to it later. “Later” ended up being several *days*–I finally got the underground conduit extended into the attic, but I still have to get some telephone- and network cable rated for underground usage. (The conduit is buried about two feet, and in the summertime the temperature within the underground conduit is low enough to cause moisture to condense inside the pipe, to the point that the cable will effectively be underwater.) In the meantime, I’m going to continue using the indoor-rated cable until it fails (or I’m able to acquire some underground cable).

I’ve got some pictures, but I haven’t had a chance to upload them yet. Hopefully tonight I’ll have a chance to wire up the phone and internet, then I’ll try to post a *real* update on the project.
