We CLOSED Today!!!

It took exactly 84 days from a hole in the ground to keys in our hands (pretty impressive really). We got the call at 12:30pm that the funds were transferred and the home was ours. So, of course I headed over as soon as I could (an hour later) and the local phone company was already there hooking up our phone and Internet. Yay!

Our PM and handy man were there doing last minute detail work. But I wasted no time slapping up some sample strips of paint colors to make sure they looked how I wanted in each room. Tomorrow the painter comes to paint the kids rooms, entry, and great room.
These are the two colors I'm deciding on for around fireplace. It was already dark out so it's hard to tell but kids like the darker "pavestone" color. I keep thinking the lighter "amazing gray" will let the fireplace pop. Thoughts? I'll see how it looks in the morning light.
While the painter does his thing, I will be painting the office and sealing granite and grout. Should be a fun day hanging out in our HOME!

    2. Nadase, you are funny. I am beyond ready to move out of our small white-walled rental and into our warm and cozy home... And I literally haven't been able to sleep the past two nights so I figured blogging sounded better than tv. Maybe I'll post pics tonight of my progress.

    3. I am with you Catherine 100%!!! LOL I have really slept much since this process. It's too many details and lots of work before and after the move. I may have to take the next semester off to get settled! This has been a whirlwind and the clock is ticking. #feelingalittlepressure
