Well...After much tossing and turning, I've decided not to move this weekend. It's just feeling a bit rushed. I want to wait until the driveway has been poured, the yard has been leveled and seeded, and I have blinds & curtains up. They're still doing the final inspection today. Then we'll start moving little things that we can live without for 3 books, pictures, decorative stuff, winter clothes, random furniture, etc. I've waited a year. What's 3 more weeks?

Just got a call from my builder. We passed the HVAC and plumbing inspections. Woo hoo!


If you walk into my house and turn on the faucet, WATER COMES OUT! They're finishing paint touchups, hanging towel bars and toilet paper holders, and painting the garage. And the floor guy is coming to do the final coat sometime this afternoon. My cabinets were finished yesterday...and THEY'RE AWESOME! I'll try to post some pictures tomorrow...won't be able to get in today due to the floors. They're doing the plumbing and HVAC inspections today, then the final one tomorrow. I just want to know if I'll be moving this weekend or not...

outside work

Quite a bit of activity going on around the old construction site this morning. First, the well-drillers are finishing up. We have to let it sit for 48 hours after they finish drilling...then we can get the water tested. I'm not terribly optimistic. They were only able to get around 3 gallons a minute. Grrrr....

The septic tank is going in...they should have that wrapped up this afternoon.

Appliances were delivered:

And the carpet upstairs. It's nothing fancy (I couldn't afford anything fancy since I blew my budget plus some on the hardwoods...).

bath time




Thursday, July 05, 2007


They've spent the last two days finishing my floors. They still have to do a final coat, but that won't happen until appliances are in, carpet is installed, etc. The floor has darkened considerably since it was first installed a month ago. I can't wait until it really turns...

Here's the banister and newel post. The handrail will be stained to match the front door and the exposed beams. The appliances and my bathtub are scheduled to be delivered today. I'll keep you posted...

***UPDATE: Just called to check on the status of the appliances. No one seems to know what's going on with them. Long story short...they aren't being delivered today. The bathtub, however, should be here this afternoon.
