The new house......

Haven't mentioned that in a while have I?  Things are coming along quite nicely.  They are on bricking it at the moment.  Dh had to pop into town on Tuesday night and went round by the house and took a couple of photos.  This is the back of the house, you can also see next doors house as well in the photo.  Ours ends where the stone work ends.  Where it is all stoned and there are three windows and a half round window, that is our bedroom.


 This is the front of the house and again next door's house is partly in the picture.  That is their garage you can partly see.
Inside of the house all the drywall has been done including the waffle ceiling in the living room and it is a huge wow factor.  All the crown moulding has been installed; I didn't have my camera when we saw all of this.  I have no idea what else they have done.  The garage floor was poured with concrete, so that is done.  The garage is still to drywall.  The gas fire is in, but not the surround.  I am assuming they will be doing the tiling next.......but honestly don't know for sure.  The people opposite us have moved in.  Have seen them but not talked to them.  Everything is on schedule though which is good.

Got a couple things bought for it including the garage door opener.  The fan/light for our bedroom.  Have put a deposit down on this table and chairs for the breakfast room; I can't copy and paste a photo over, sorry.  It's nothing fancy and we wanted chairs that were not only comfy to sit on but could be easily wiped down in case of spills etc. 

Got rid of all my canning jars last week and the picnic table outside.  Going to post a few more items on Kijiji over the next few days to try and get rid of more things.  Managed to pack up the toys and games yesterday, so all in all things are coming together okay.

We used to drive up at weekends to see progress on our last house being built...it's amazing how much can get done in one week.

It reminds me of when my parents built the house that I "grew up" in (I was 12 when we moved in). They would go by daily to see what was done. We were one of the last to move in on the cul-de-sac. We moved in on Dec 31, 1987....in a snow storm.

Do you have a tenative move-in date?
