Today was a great day. In the past week we received updates that the final stages of the home are in progress. We look forward to hearing that it passes inspection this week (fingers crossed) and that our mortgage company has a good assessment of value. We were also excited to invite a few of our future neighbors and friends to come walk through the house with us after church today.
When we pulled up we noticed that the driveway and front walk way were in place. They also finished the columns and put up the house number and doorbell.
On the inside, it appears all the finishing work is complete. The granite island was in place and all the lights seem to be working as we played around with what light switches operate which fixtures.
In the bathrooms the mirrors and lights are in place.
We did some price shopping this weekend for appliances and found that Best Buy had the best bargains for what we wanted. So after walking through the house we headed down to Best Buy to order all our new stuff! We ordered a fridge, stove/range, microwave, washer, dryer, chest freezer and threw in a Dyson pet hair vacuum since we'll have a TON more carpet areas to vacuum.
A few of the appliances we ordered were on backorder and have to be shipped from stores hundreds of miles away. So we aren't having them delivered until April 23rd. With that date, we tentatively decided that April 25th will then be our move in date. We expect to take possession several weeks before that, but it will give us time to paint a few rooms and be ready for the move. We have the apartment until the end of April so this will make it a smoother transition.
Ahhhh!!!! We are getting so excited because it seems so real now - can't wait!
