New House

We had our inspection of the new house yesterday, and it went perfectly!  Our inspector was incredibly thorough, and he was amazed at the workmanship and attention to detail that our builder put into our home.  He said we were very blessed because not all new construction homes are built as well.  Whew!  One less thing to worry about before moving day!  :)

Speaking of moving day, we have our final walk-through of the house tomorrow afternoon, and hopefully we will close on Friday and get to start moving in!  We already have our fridge ready for delivery, and have lined up someone to install flooring in my scraproom and the office next Wednesday.  Looks like it might be a busy weekend!

I was able to get some photos on Sunday!  Here they are.  Don't mind the dust and carpet fuzz.  That should all be gone by tomorrow.  :)

they finished the front steps!

Yippee! Seems like it hasn't been very long since you picked out your house. But, I'm sure it feels like it's been a long time to you. :) Good luck with the closing and move-in.

Sue Laufer said...

I LOVE your house. It's so open & inviting. Hope you get to close & move in as planned.

Jeanne said...

How awesome! Your new home looks so roomy and inviting and you don't even have any furniture in it yet. It's gonna be fabulous once you put your Nona touches in place.

Congratulations! And here's hoping the actual moving in goes just as smoothly!

You house looks just beautiful Nona! I hope you share more photos once you get all of your stuff in it. That scrap room will be wonderful. Mine is fairly large, but not as large as yours, and it's so great for doing workshops. Enjoy!!
