Oops, forgot to update the English translation.. Well, the house is almost done now. All the siding is done, the inside has been painted several times (and the paint ruined too), the vinyl has been laid, the gutters and downspouts installed, the deck has been built, the countertops are in, the A/C works, some of the doors have been installed, lots more....
