Got dates!!!!!

Hello all...

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!  We have been making progress with our home and today I got great news...our pre-settlement date is set for 20 Jan and settlement on 26 Jan.  So far all is looking good for me to be able to travel to make it to the final stretch and partake in some of the process...I am so ecstatic!

The house is coming along nicely. As of Monday the cabinets had been installed and the ceramic tiles had been laid but needed grouting.  The fireplace has the surround and mantel.  Windows and doors had trim and the doors were put in.  Still a bit to go but all in all we're pleased with the progress and I can't wait to see it in person.

Well until the next post...have a happy new year!!!!

New Updates

Hello All,

I've been MIA but for good reason...my hubby was here visiting over the past week and half.  Unfortunately his time here went by too quickly but hopefully in January I'll be making the trip home to close on the house.  Although we don't have a firm date yet we are expecting to close around 26 Jan.

So updates on the house...plumbing and ventilation was done right before he came out here and of course as I predicted dry wall happened while he was here.  We missed the pre-dry wall meeting but everything looks okay so far.  He sent plenty of pictures that I am slowly dissecting!  We did notice that one of the speakers in the media room is in the wrong location so he'll be contacting Guardian to get it fixed.  The garage was packed with doors and cabinetry which I guess will be getting installed in the next week or so.  The drywall also still needs to be finished off (taping and patching).

Well that's all for now...
