I have so much floating around in my brain that I don't know where to begin. So, my awesome husband bought me a ticket to California so I could be with my family for Thanksgiving. Let's just say that there may have been a minor melt down (depends on your definition of minor) right after we sold our Illinois home and he knew I needed a dose of mom and dad. He's a good man! So right now I am enjoying 70+ weather for a few days before we get the keys to our house and crazy begins. The problem is that my body thinks I'm on Ohio time and I woke up at 4:40 this morning.....it's the price I pay so I will take it.
Ok, Ok, I'll move on to the THE HOUSE!
We are down to the nitty gritty now. Once the blue tape hits the walls, you know you are getting close. I met the "handy man" last week and he said he goes through every inch of the house, marking any imperfection in blue tape. The last week is spent having all the contractors come back through fixing stuff. So in all the pics, you will see blue tape but it's a good thing. ..
The next time I see the house, we will be doing our Pre-settlement walk through (which is on Monday). We get the keys on Wednesday. How is it that the time has gone so slow yet flown by all at the same time?
Kayt is enjoying her soft, comfy floor. She says she may just sleep on the floor...So I guess I get to return her new bed we bought her.....Yay for us!
Speaking of basement, someone left us a nice gift......
These next photos were taken by Dan yesterday. He stopped by midday to check everything out since he's been hunting for 10 days. They painted our front door. I think it's beautiful.
Our PM said they will be doing the initial grading today and getting the enormous pile of dirt off our lot. Unfortunately, he also told us that they will not be able to pour our driveway until spring. I could write a whole post about this...not sure if I want to. Maybe I will.
I will update on bathroom tile later. I am supposed to hear back later today on that issue.
I AM READY TO MOVE INTO OUR HOME!
