Carpet went in today! And so did the sidewalks! Only large thing left is lawn/landscaping. Other than that it's all details (dotting the i's, crossing the t's).
Also today I've got most of our utilities set up and we got our HUD-1. Closing specialist both called and emailed me to explain the procedure for bringing the cashier's check. We were lucky enough to have some equity from the last house to put toward this house. So the check is a decent amount. Enough to make me nervous as hell to carry it around. I might show up at closing with it stuffed in my bra (kidding ... kinda).
With that visual, I'll spare you more words:
|Sort of forgot until tonight that the front door still needs painted. Red! (Also does that little porch scream for some potted plants or what?)|
|They switched out our locks from the construction ones to the real ones!|
|A very dirty backdoor (chuckle). This will lead to the hubby's workshop.|
|Picture didn't turn out that great but the door from the mudroom to the garage has brushed nickel on the inside and oil-rubbed bronze on the outside.|
|Carpet! And carpet maggots. I foresee lots and lots of vacuuming and lots of those tape rolly things for our clothes.|
|Bathroom tile has been grouted! One bonus to picking the white tile -- that huge access panel blends right in.|
|Insert bubbles and my toes here.|
|Still need the shower surround.|
|Smurfs have arrived and left little bits of blue tape on our walls.|
|And there she is with sidewalks! (opposite angle from my usually POV shot)|
