This week was a whirlwind of a week for us. The major thing this week was moving. Yep, we had to move and our house isn’t even done yet. The lease for the rental house we were in a couple miles from the build went month-to-month after January and although we were supposed to be able to stay as long as we wanted the owners wanted to move back in on May 1st! Can you believe it? So we talked with Matt to see how fast things could go to hurry things up and he said that we could move in on Saturday, May 7th. So between May 1st and May 7th we needed to move in with MY PARENTS! I never thought we’d have to move back in with my parents, but since it was just a week, I figured that I could deal with the commute and suck it up. We actually were at Cameron’s lacrosse tournament in Eastern Washington this weekend so Joel and I took the day off on Wednesday and Thursday to get us all moved. That meant Thursday night we were shackin’ with my parents. To get us moved, my mom and I went to the new house to clean out the garage and vacuum up as much sawdust as possible. Then we went back home to help Joel and the movers with the remainder of the packing and moving. Surprisingly it all of our stuff fit in the new 3-car garage and after covering it with plastic we’re hoping that it doesn’t get covered with more construction dust over the next week. I can’t wait until next week when we can actually move all of our stuff into the new house though…it’s going to be so exciting!
Besides moving, we also had all of the appliances installed! We ended up choosing KitchenAid’s professional series and I love them! They fit in the space perfectly and really look great…couldn’t be happier. Of course, we haven’t used them yet 😉
More lighting was installed this week too. Some of the rooms weren’t 100% finished, so they had to come back and finish up the install. I’m really happy with all of the light fixtures that we chose and think that they really add a lot of personality for each of the rooms. And the exterior lights were even installed! One piece of glass was broken and besides that they look fantastic…definitely better than I had thought they would. The oil rubbed bronze really pops against the white house and adds some much needed accents.
Finally I the majority of the tile was finished up this week – all except the vanity backsplash in the guest bath. The Oceanside glass tile arrived and was installed in the powder room and looks phenomenal. It’s got the right amount of texture and shine for that room. Besides that new install, all of the tile was grouted in the vanities for the master bath and the kitchen. They turned out great and I honestly wouldn’t change any of it.
Finally, the backyard was graded out this week. They had to finish backfilling over the septic drainfield as well as installing the drywell.
And, this weekend Cameron’s team WON the lacrosse tournament in tri-cities!! Way to go wolves!!!
