Week 5 & 6

Greenfield, CA

Time has been moving quickly here in south Monterey county.

On July 14th, we celebrated George's 69th birthday!
My cousin Kelly and her family were in the area,
so we met them at a restaurant in Moss Landing,
Whole Enchilada.
Our favorite go-to place, Phil's, was too packed to eat there.

George and Mom

Kelly's son Cody and wife Kerri

Kelly and me

Kelly's daughter Chelsey, son Hudson, and Kelly's husband Gary
Chelsey's daughter Layla and husband Chad

We had a great time with them all!

Tuesday the girls went wine tasting and out to lunch..

There's more progress on the house.
The second story went up 2 weeks ago..

..and this week we saw the outside walls had gone up.

We love seeing the progress as they put more into it.
There is a single story house going up to the left,
and another two story to the right.

We've had a couple inquiries on the RV now.
Keep that in your prayers please,
it has to sell!

Week 4 update

Greenfield, CA

Things are moving right along with the house.

Last week they started the framing of the first floor..

We went by on Tuesday and they had
started the sheeting on the first floor..

I'm sure by now they've started the second floor framing.

Yesterday was an exciting day.
Mom, George and I went to the design center
up in Hollister. 
We were there to pick out our tile, carpet, and paint colors,
as well as kitchen countertops, etc.
We met with Jessica, who couldn't have been nicer.

We went through every detail of the house,
including internal systems, lighting, cabinet colors,
too much to mention!
They have a great system online to pick everything,
and then go over it all with us in person.

We're going with a gray scheme (isn't everyone these days?)
These are our carpet, tile, and paint colors.
We'll have the first floor all in tile, 
with the exception of Mom's bedroom,
which will be the carpet.
Upstairs will be all carpet with the exception
of the bathrooms and laundry room.

Our cabinets will be the Nutmeg color, 
with chrome handles throughout.

The kitchen countertops will be 
White Ice quartz, and the backsplash 
will be subway tile in Gray gloss.

 We're so excited to have that all finished!

Afterwards we all went to Jardine's restaurant
in San Juan Bautista to celebrate!

We've been purchasing more items for the house,
including these pendant lights for over the island.

Lowe's was having a sale, so ceiling fans 
were purchased for the bedrooms
at a great price! $39.98 each!

Technology is great these days as well.
George found a camera online so we
could keep an eye on Cooper while we're gone.
He's graduated out of his crate, but still chooses to sleep there.

4 months to go until closing..
no bites on the RV yet, we've lowered the price a bit.
