We are now in that stage where we're starting to live out of boxes and plan for the week of the move. We are going to load up the largest U-Haul offered ourselves, but hire movers suggested by U-Haul to get "the big stuff" at the new house, such as getting the mattresses/box springs, treadmill, washer/dryer and TVs upstairs. Aaron, my dad and I had no issues getting this stuff into our current house (thankfully it's only a 1-story), so it shouldn't be too bad getting it out. Right?
There was little progress this week, but the few things that were completed I was so excited about.
|This was on Tuesday. The Morning Room tile.|
|Working on the tile on Tuesday.|
|Standard shower tile in the upstairs guest bath. It has since been grouted (white) and looks less prison-ish.|
|Kitchen tile on Wednesday! Love the grout. This is the same tile in the powder room, just didn't get a shot of that.|
|My island with granite! Love the overhang.|
|Almost completed kitchen. This shot is from the dining room entryway. Love the natural light coming from the morning room. And it was actually an overcast day!|
|Shot taken from the morning room. Still waiting on that cabinet to get fixed.|
|Close-up of the granite. I was nervous it was going to have too much of a yellow tint, but it compliments the cabinets and flooring wonderfully.|
|Stone work has begun!|

As for the interior, we still need that one kitchen cabinet fixed, some windows where the seal was broken have still not been installed (the replacement has been ordered) toilets and the powder room sink are sitting in the garage waiting to be installed and we are waiting on carpet and hardwood. Our AC unit and tankless hot water heater are also in the garage. I find it odd that they have not been locking up the garage when they leave, especially with that stuff in there. I can't even tell you how many AC units have been stolen from my dad's business right down the road, and here's a unit just sitting, waiting to be stolen! Something to mention to our SR or PM I suppose.
