I know I'm a little overdue for a house update, but now is when everything...slows.....waaaay......down. There HAS been progress, but it's not as exciting as when the walls were going up at lightning speed. The good news? Our general contractor is as frustrated with the lack of speed as we are.
I wasn't sure if I had ever posted a photo of the front of the house, so here ya go:We got our first coat of primer the other day - and don't those bull-nosed corners look neat around the dining room windows?Here is the rest of the living area. There is SO MUCH dust in the air! All those very large white cables coming out of the wall are "pre-wiring" for a Bose surround-sound system, if we can ever decide on one. There are also wires in the attic for them, so that we can hang a multitude of speakers in the ceiling. We are gonna ROCK!Our wall texture is called "orange peel," and is very light. It was tough to get a close-up of the texture, but maybe you can tell something about it:That texture photo is like NOSE-DISTANCE away - so it's very subtle. The concrete crew also came back and did some work on our retaining wall, getting our drive one step closer to fill dirt:And wait a minute...who is that? Putzing around in the yard? Why...it's my MAN on a LAWN TRACTOR!Don't laugh - that's really what they call it. A lawn tractor - not a lawn mower. Whatever. But Roger has been oh-so-proud of "working the new land" on this puppy.Nothing like a new toy to make a guy happy! Who says a freshly mown lawn isn't pretty?
Meanwhile, painters are painting, siders are siding, and MAYBE we will be in by Christmas! I am just now realizing that I have no matching dishes, no matching glasses, no sheets for our new king-sized bed, and no sheets for Amber's new queen bed. Guess what we're getting for Christmas?
Oh, and a special note to Melissa: Sorry I didn't do a Grey's recap this week, but feel free to run amok in the comments. I just figured, with the writer's strike and all, we could use December to rehash prior episodes, since we won't be getting any NEW ones for a while!
