House Happenings - September 30th

Wow! I was hoping to update our blog more frequently with the progress on our house, but everything is happening so quickly I cannot keep up! Most everything in the interior is now installed. We have cabinets, counter tops, sinks, toilets, thermostat, vent covers, doors, door handles, paint, wood flooring, laminate flooring, CARPET (just today), shelves, appliances, a fireplace...there are probably more and I can't remember right now. It sounds like they should be finished in two weeks! We are so excited, yet the daunting task of packing lies before me. HELP! :)

Kitchen with finished cabinets, counter tops, appliances and tiled back splash (new today)

New Carpet (YES!! Now to keep the dog hair off!)

Carpeted stairs going up from the living room.

House Happenings - September 4th

We have insulation, drywall, partial siding and a back deck.
Everything is going so fast with this house.

Siding is complete on the sides and back of the house

Half wall separating the dining room (aka playroom)
from the family room

House Happenings - September 1st

Today we visited the house to find that all of the electrical
and plumbing is installed. The driveway and front stoop are poured
and the siding is beginning to go on.
They are also working on our back deck.
We found piles of drywall waiting to be installed in each room
which Sophie loved to climb on.

and Molly's bedroom.
