3 weeks until closing!

Greenfield, CA

Lots of changes in the progress of the house.

The outside is looking so nice!

The guys were putting the gutters in 
and finishing up the roof.
The brick accents are on as well,
and I see plants and trees waiting to be planted in the front!

The backyard is all cleaned up..

..and we're getting quotes on landscaping.

Inside is looking so pretty!
The counter tops and back splash are in.. well as the tile flooring.
It's covered up with paper to keep it protected
from scratches.

Mom is so excited and can't wait to move in!

The carpet for the downstairs bedroom
and the upstairs was installed on Wednesday.

There were people cleaning up everything,
they said that happens 3 different times before our walk through!

All of us met a lady who measured our windows
so that we can order from Lowe's.
We had tried to get another company,
but after two reschedules, she struck out :-)
The blinds are purchased and with luck
they'll be installed on schedule.

All this happened on our 8th anniversary!
George and I celebrated at our favorite restaurant, Luigi's.

There's a light at the end of the tunnel!

30 days and counting down!

Greenfield, CA

We can't believe how fast the time has flown,
in a short 30 days we'll be closing on our house!

Lots of things have happened since the last post.
Last week we went to check things out,
and were met with this..

Unfortunately the local kids got in and 'tagged'
our walls in a couple places.
The walls hadn't been painted yet,
so that was a good thing.

The roof and outside stucco and painting is finished.
They poured our driveway last week,
and thank goodness no little fingers put their initials in it.

They still need little touches, such as the stonework 
on the lower part of the posts and garage.

Today the guys were putting up fence posts along the sides
and back of the property..

Inside there is great progress.
The cabinets are in, with the chrome knobs as well.
They've started laying the tile on the floors downstairs.

The painters did paint everything (a nice shade of gray!)
and it covered the 'tagging' done by the little brats.

We've lined up furniture delivery, installation of cable/internet
and security system.
George called and is renting a U-haul trailer 
to get all the things in the RV moved,
so that's all set.

Cooper is wondering where we will hang his bell?!
He rings it when he needs to go outside :-)

Everything is falling into place..
well, almost.
The RV still hasn't sold :-(
We have plans to consign it at a local dealer.
Unfortunately we have a bit of a gap
in what we owe and what they'll allow.

It will all work out somehow :-)

44 days :)

Greenfield, CA

Oh boy! Lookie this!
Our house is now painted, the trim is up!
A nice gray with blue touches.

Inside walls are taped and sanded, 
and they were starting the texturing of the walls
yesterday when we were there.

Thursday they're installing the cabinets!!
We're also having someone come to measure 
the windows to have blinds installed.

Now we can say we're moving in,
"next month!"

Cooper has found a new commercial he likes.
I think it's for Facebook groups,
all about a dog group.
He sits at attention when he sees it come on!
