Moving day again

Well, here we go - yesterday we brought the first car loads of stuff over to the house, and Monday the movers will get the rest of it. We're alittle overwhelmed, hard to believe that the whole thing is done and we're actually going to live there.

So, this is good-bye for now. I'm going to take the computer down again, and our good friends at Charter have yet to install the pole that will bring cable to our house, so who knows how long it'll be before I'm back on (I'm betting 6 weeks minimum). Maybe this is good-bye anyway - we'll be working on landscaping next and I don't know how you'll feel about watching plants grow..... let me know if you want us to continue the saga....

Sept 10-14

Almost there, we've got a key!

September 3-7

Well, we're moving along now! Plumbing is done, all the mechanicals are in and the electrician is rushing to get the lighting installed. We're guaranteed a September 17th move in date. Next week they'll finish up on the little things, and clean the place up. We're still waiting for our railings, but the inspector is ok with a temporary permit until they are installed! The movers are lined up and I'll spend this week packing and cleaning.

PS to Bob - Can't wait to see you!

Shower fixtures are in

Steps are done

Even bigger news!

The biggest news of the week -
Gary's being released from Mary Freebed and will be home on Tuesday! We're thrilled to have him back!

Whining helps!

Look at all the trucks! Those contractors must have heard me whine - you've never seen so many people work on one house. It was a bee hive of activity this week - look and see!

Exposed aggregate steps

NOT where the washer & dryer are going

But check out those coat hooks!

Fixtures going in our bathroom
Bookshelves and desk in our bedroom

Soon to be full of clothes!

Counters go on

Ooooh, aaaah, back splash is on, and check out that hardware!

Wood on the fireplace -

and granite

I'm probably most excited about the kitchen. Imagine that!
