Christmas Eve, little work this coming week

Well, it's Christmas eve today and we don't expect a lot of work to be done on the house until after the first of the year. 

Last week we did get the septic tank installed and on Friday they were running the irrigation lines, so hopefully that is done. It appears as if the structure of the pool is done, save the final plaster coat. The pumps and filters and such are not in yet, but there is plenty of time to do that. The slab has been mostly leveled by the use of some type of self-leveling compound. It goes on almost in a watery state and then hardens to almost a concrete material. They had applied the third coat last week, and may still need one move. The slab was definitely out of smooth and level!

One issue has come up with us having gotten a lot of  rain the last few weeks. It seems that the windows leak. Our contractor has been talking to Monolithic Domes about the problem and they think they have a solution, but it involves pulling the windows out and fully reseating them. I don't know when that will occur, but I assume soon.

We were supposed to have a front door and a garage door by this time, but those aren't in yet. Not a big deal, but something else that is running behind schedule.
