It seems like forever! It's only been 4 months since we moved out of our house. I can't say it was 4 months since it sold because there were all sorts of hangups with the buyers' lender. FHA = government and we know how well the wheels of government turns. We went three weeks past closing of escrow!
Sheet rock is up and drying. Now it really looks like a house.
The garage door is up and the rock on the front of the house. We move all the way from Humboldt County to North Idaho and guess where the rock is from? Grants Pass, Oregon!
Doors are being painted and installed soon.
The north wall is an accent color. It's called...yeah, don't laugh....Humble Gold.
The rest of the house is the same eggshell color.
Lighting goes in on Monday. We have lovely frosted 'boob' lights. I suppose if they can call the door in the garage a "man" door, then I can call these "boob" lights!
Picking out lights is tough. I think I was handicapped by a terrifying light shopping incident as a child. My parents wanted one lamp...I think it took a week and we went to every store that carried lamps in the entire Bay Area. And then the lamp was butt ugly!
So selecting lights by myself...well, Q was with me, but I was by myself pretty much trying to send pictures to DD on my phone so he could help me choose while he was at work. Now that was hard too...I had to find just the right place and hold the phone in the air to get it to pick up enough of a signal. Not an easy thing with the metal roof in Lowe's.
Also have the front and back deck now too.
Cleaning up the site today. The girls weren't too into it...until we got the fire going :-) Such little pyros! Wonder where they get it from daddy?
This week the siding is supposed to start. Electrician comes Monday to install lights, cabinets come Tuesday and are installed Wednesday with the wood laminate and vinyl going down Thursday and Friday. I'm not sure what else will happen...but we are keeping our toes and fingers crossed that we can be in before the end of November!
