Down to the Nitty Gritty

Well no new pics for this week. Everything is pretty much the same as last week - just cleaner! We're going through all the motions of getting ready to own the place!

The house was appraised early this week and came in at a good number - high enough that the mortgage will all be covered, but not too high that we have to pay extra taxes. We plan to have a professional inspector (...ahem...Paul's Dad...ahem) go through and inspect the house for structural/electrical/plumbing, etc type issues tomorrow night. We hope to close in the next week or two (do I sound like a broken record saying that?).

Hopefully we'll be able to take possession soon so that I can paint a few rooms before our move in date. We've been brainstorming of what colors we'd like for the kitchen/dining area/family room/foyer. We're currently considering a light smoky gray for the kitchen (I know ... that is the same as the old house!) and possible a light celery green elsewhere in the downstairs, I'm not quite sure they'll coordinate, but we'll see.

We also plan on painting the master bedroom before we move in which will be the same as the old house - tan / chocolate brown - to go with our bedding and gigantic furniture. I plan to start using this blog as a decorating update instead of a construction update, since that phase is now complete.

The sun is shining, the daffodil's are coming up - Spring is in the air! Great time for a new home. Happy Easter :)

  1. Hey Jody! Thanks for stopping by my blog today-- I'd seen your link on Jenny's page too, but I wasn't sure if it was you or not! I'm glad you confirmed that for me!

    I think I'm leaning towards going to the reunion... especially if Jenny coordinates it, I know it'll be a lot of fun! I'm still anxious over it, but I think it's turning into a good type of anxiety.
