Home sweet home!

I have been remiss in posting updates but here is the scoop. We are moved in. Praise the Lord! We have closed on the house (10/12/11). Thank you, Jesus. We are mostly unpacked. Halleluia!

I took my grandkids on a video tour using Facetime and my granddaughter, Bradie, saw the boxes still in the garage. She said, “Grandma, you still have boxes to unpack?” Wonder where she gets that from, huh!

We are so blessed and are loving our new home. In a few more weeks, we will be having an open house. Meanwhile, I still have some boxes to unpack.

Enjoy a few pictures of our new home with our stuff in it.

So, check out the totally cool double rainbow that was right over our new house just before we left for dinner. Our builder thinks it might be a good sign!

Needed – One Occupancy Permit

Why do I always stress myself out when I know God is faithful and He will provide in His time, not my time. The landscaping is done and is beautiful. The house is clean. One final inspection by the city is needed and then they will issue the occupancy permit. We are praying that God will have it done tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow we will empty out the apartment, clean and then shampoo the carpets. Then we will get the rental truck and load it full of all our things. Once we sign a temporary rental agreement after the occupancy permit is issued, we can start moving in.

Here are a few new pictures. Don’t you want to see it with my stuff in it? I sure do!

We are getting very close to being done and able to move in. We will either close this week or do a temporary rental agreement prior to closing. We walked through today and there was very little to correct. They had completed some landscaping and cleaning. It is such a beautiful house and we are so blessed. The master bathroom is gorgeous. Enjoy the pictures.

Lights, Gutters, Driveway…

We have an outside porch light, garage light and a doorbell. We have gutters. We have a driveway, steps, and a porch. I can’t wait to walk through and see what has been happening on the inside. It is getting close.

Anyway, here are a few more pictures. It is so hard to wait!!!

Forms and Concrete… Again

We love the exterior paint color. What do you think? So the main color is called … cardboard. I like it. But since we are packing and surrounded by boxes it could just be that I am used to the color.

We are praying for everything to come together so we can close on September 30th. Keep us in your prayers for that. We need to be out of our current apartment by then. Fortunately, our landlord is giving us a few days grace but we don’t want to take too much advantage of that.

The builders are working as hard as they can to help make it happen. We have lights in the house! We have forms for the concrete pour of the driveway, porch, extra parking, and patio. We haven’t been inside for about a week but are going to schedule a walk through this week, maybe Thursday.

Meanwhile, enjoy the pictures.

So, I am both excited and slightly bummed. The schedule projects the house to be done around September 28th now. But I know all of this is in God’s hand and He has a plan. So, I just need to change some dates on some of the things I scheduled.

The french drains are in and they did a bit of landscaping with more to come. They terraced the side yard which is pretty cool.

The other pictures are mostly of the different flooring installations. I really like how everything is coming together. The color choices for everything are coordinating well.

Tommorrow they will paint the outside so stay tuned for those pictures.
