October 22 update
The radiant heat is working! First we buried all those PEX tubes in 8 inches of concrete and then we attached water (nerve-wracking), but only two or three very slow leaks at joints in the copper - yippee! It took about 12 hours to heat up the slab - it seems to be exactly as people had told us: a very cozy heat! It is so nice to open up the door to warmth - I can't wait to move in.
Let's see the near future -- appliances are here and will be placed as possible. They are now in the hallway behind the kitchen. Kitchen cabinets should be done in another week - Tulikivi may have to wait until around Thanksgiving as he has three installations and we are one that can be flexible. Plumber will be here next week to finish the tub and commode in the bathroom.
We have the tile for the laundry and the other bath, so they will be next. Our absolute drop-dead livability date is Nov. 1st - snow showers are forecast for the coming week. brrrrrr!
