Don't want to clutter up my 229 build thread so I'll start here. The new subflooring is in.

But now we have electrical probes and since we are going that far and need drywall so why not do the ceiling ! So, this where we are now.....harv

Did they ever find the source of the leak?

No Steve. Looks like a long-ago leak. Floors dry and still looks "wet". So we are good to go on the floor......harv

Just a tip, look up and check the pipes before they get the ceiling on.

At my Daughters' house, the original Builder cheaped out on the plumbing and instead of all copper piping installed PVC for the cold water. At some point, either a Rat or Possum got inside the roof cavity and gnawed through the plastic. Daughter #1 came home from work, and thought Daughter #2 had shaken up a Pepsi bottle as she described it, there was a brown patch on the ceiling with little drops formed. 15 minutes later...

Water had filled the cavity above the shower over the day, the brown she saw was the colour leeching out of the beams. $8000 damage!

So yeah, make sure you check ALL those pipes before you seal it up.

We are good to go for that. All the plumbing is under the house in the crawl space. No concrete........harv

He meant , concrete slab, There are only foundation walls along the perimeter of the house, possibly at load-bearing points.

Ours is supposed to look like that too. But the crawl space is almost nonexistent as the back of our house where the kitchen is is 13 inches lower than the front. And being in the middle of a group of row houses, we're not fixing it any time soon. 

At least we were able to move our pipes out from under the floor into the kitchen so they don't freeze in winter. 

What you get when you buy a 125 year old house.

Our pipes don't freeze but I have to put a 100 watt bulb in the pump house to keep the well pipes from freezing....harv

from here, this looks like it is moving along rather quickly, BUT when you are waiting for it to be finished on the front line, I bet it feels like it is taking FOREVER !!  Sure is looking good though
