Day 50 | Doorknobs and house cleaning

House Day: 50
Loan Day: 67

I ordered the door knobs last Friday and got them in today! I LOVE them! Egg shaped knobs, some privacy locks for the bathroom and bedrooms, some non-locking ones for the closets, a couple for the pocket doors we will have, and then our front door set with matching keys to our garage door entryway too.

No work from the framers today, so we took this opportunity to go in and sweep up the sawdust from the floors. I didn't take a before pic, but trust me, there was plenty of saw dust all over. And I'm not sure if the framers would be cleaning up after themselves, and I had read that we would need to hire a cleaning crew during the building process. I figured we can save the money on that and do the clean up ourselves. So we went out and swept the floors and threw all the scrap pieces out in the pile. It was looking nice and pretty and clean. :)

A few pics from the outside that I didn't take last night, that shows the roofing done on the dormer window and the walkout basement side.


  1. I love those handles. I was just thinking about them the other day, how I'd love to put that kind in my house, but can't afford it. Love the progress!

    1. Check out it was SO much cheaper than big box stores! The cost for our whole house was $220 :)
