Week 3 update

Greenfield, CA

Things are moving right along with the house.
George and I stop by usually on Tuesdays
and visit with Mom as well.
She goes by to look at the progress sometimes.

Our foundation is poured..

and this week we noticed that the gas lines were being put in..

They should start framing next week.

Meanwhile, we've had fun at Yanks.
There was a birthday party for Steve, 
who turned 60 on the 22nd.

Norma, Mandi and I went to a concert in Santa Cruz.
Smash Mouth was playing..
remember them?

If you have seen the Shrek movies, they sang
a lot of the songs in it.

We all had fun, 
love the concerts on the sand!

Things are going well!

Moving forward - week one and two

Greenfield, CA

3 weeks ago we signed a sales agreement
 to build a house in Salinas.

More about the house:

It's in a Century community,
they have homes in areas all over the country.
You can see what our house will be

We have the Juniper model,
the Bungalow.

The house will have more gray tones and a front porch.

 We are having them put
a bedroom on the first floor for Mom.
She'll have her own bathroom with walk in shower,
grab bars, and taller toilet.

The first floor also has a nice great room, dining area, 
and big kitchen with an island.

Upstairs will be the master suite, laundry room,
and two extra bedrooms.
George is making one of the bedrooms a den,
(or man cave to get away from 2 females) :-)

There will be a nice backyard so Cooper will be in heaven.
We plan to have a garden back there, and a nice patio.

Last week the builders built the forms for the foundation...

This week they have the plumbing set up..

The foundation should be poured Friday!

Living in an RV for 7 years means no furniture,
so we went shopping this week!

We bought a bedroom set..

..a dining room set..

..and 2 barstools for the island in the kitchen.

Ashley Furniture was having a great sale!
Walmart was also having a nice sale,
so George bought 2 TV's.
A 65" for the great room,
and a 55" for his 'man cave'.

Things are coming along!

At the RV park it's been very hot!
110° yesterday, going to be 102° today.
The US Open golf tournament is being played
at the Pebble Beach golf course.
It is here every 10 years,
and it is well attended.
The park is full,
mostly golfers wanting to go watch the pros play.

We have the Vilano for sale,
if anyone is interested it's listed here:

George and I will miss traveling,
but it's time for a new chapter.
