Books, Moldings, Sewer Line, and Trees

The book case project has reached the point where the focus is on finishing details, including affixing the crown molding, adjusting shelf heights, and completing the book case that is against the wall below the windows.  The entryway desk and book sales cabinet have been varnished and look real fine.  Books are being shifted from their temporary emplacements to where they will probably reside permanently.  And the computer counter is close to being finished.  Renovation of the old wing has been stalled a little by the search for the sewer line, which turned out not to be where the plans said it should have been, but the electrical work has gone into high gear again.  

Sue and Alex Heuchert reposition books in the new book cases.
Louise Matz, Bob Lynn, John Fritsche, and Bob McMillin rig up a chop saw and jig to cut crown molding to exactly the right angles.

What's this?!?  The "lost" sewer line beneath the floor of the old entryway!  It was necessary to call in a plumber with a TV camera to find its route - the view on the monitor was about like watching a colonoscopy.  The "colonoscopy" also revealed that the pipe is still in good shape.
And finally this week, we arrived to find one of the stone pines had fallen in the night across the fence and onto the railroad property.  Two hours later the railroad people had removed all that part of the tree on their side of the fence.
