Sooooo Excited!!

We have our final walk-through on our new home on July 24th- only 17 days away!!


We close a week later, and then we move in three days after that!!  Woo hoo!


The house is locked, now as so much is finished inside and the appliances are in!!


So we have to call the builder to arrange to get inside to see it!


The front porch steps and walk and driveway is finished, although the black railings still need to be installed on the porch.


The lot is cleaned and top layer of soil, red clay, is spread out and evened out.


The hard wood floors are in, and they are covered with a white foamy film to protect them.


All the tiling in the bathrooms is finished.


The vinyl in the upstairs laundry room is in.


All the cabinets in the kitchen, baths and laundry room are in.


The granite counters are on in the kitchen.


The first coat of wall and trim paint is done, but there is some patching and finishing of trim work still to be done.


All the light fixtures still need to be done, the carpeting still needs to be installed,


and the landscaping and sod laying still needs to be done outside.


We are making all the arrangements for the new furniture to be delivered, the utilities to be put in our names, the rental truck reserved in readiness for the move in!!


We keep telling Yogi that he’ll be moving to a new house… he wags his tail as if to say “YESSSSSSS!!”
