House Update: Walking Through Progress

We've walked through the house a few times now since it was put together.

The first time I walked through, I was in awe of having the house together and just overwhelmed by the mess!! The huge mess!! You can believe how thankful I was when I saw that part of our contract includes professional cleaning after the work is complete! I let out a HUGE sigh of relief and showed the part to Brian!LOL!!

We still don't have front stairs, so we have to climb into our house. We use a bucket or ladder though... not Chris:)

The second time I walked through I was amazed at the work that had been done!! Just days from my first walk-through there was soo much progress.... it was exciting to see! Not that it was anywhere close to being done.... but progress;)

On Saturday we took Brian's parents back to the house... just 3 days from when I had last seen it! And again, so much work had been done!

And we even had some surprises... like our back door already installed:)

We've been told there are always bumps and delays in this "construction" process. One being that we noticed our sliding glass door opens from the right side instead of the left side :( Thankfully, the last I heard it was being replaced by the store! Thankful!!

There is still a LONG way to go....

just enough time to finish our core schooling, finish teaching online classes, sell some stuff and pack up;)

My closet is totally fine (no moving damage)... I can't tell how tempting it has been not to start moving my clothes into it!! But I will refrain and wait until the house is ready for all of us and our stuff;)

I am totally fascinate by the progrss of your house! It makes me wanna move to US and get one, too ;-)

Well, anyway, have the kids already decided which rooms they want?
Guess you and Brian probably have plans who is getting which room but would fun to hear that the kids have their own plans :-)
