It's been awhile

I haven't updated in quite awhile - life has been very busy around here.  Luckily, there hasn't been a ton that I've missed.  Or let me clarify, a lot has happened, but not much of it is very conducive to pictures.  So this blog isn't missing too much :)

I believe I'm correct in saying most of the electrical and plumbing, as well as all of the framing is done.  I think we're waiting on an inspection before we can move forward with some things, but hopefully that will come soon. And supposedly they could start putting in drywall as early as the next couple of weeks.  Once that happens a lot more (easily visible progress) will start happening (paint, kitchen cabinets, tile work, bathroom vanities, etc!)

Here are a few things I do have documentation of:

Our front door was delivered.

Bathtub is framed in the master bathroom

Attic ladder is installed (access through the master closet)

And framing downstairs is finally complete! (I'm standing in the living area down there, to the left in the picture is the downstairs bathroom, and to the right is the laundry room)

More of the downstairs.  This is the den area - Kyle and the electrical guy are talking about how big of a TV we're gonna put down there..... ha

Hopefully we'll have some great pictures coming soon.  Ann mentioned that this is the hardest phase because you're making lots of decisions, things seem to start moving slower, and you can't as easily see the progress.  But things are definitely moving forward!

And in case you're curious about how House #1 is doing on the market - we've officially been on the market for two weeks now.  In those two weeks we've had a few showings, a relatively successful open house, and a realtors' open house.  I'm encouraged that we continue to get traffic through the house.  We're just waiting for the right person(s) to come through and know that this is the house for them.  If you know of anyone that might be interested... please send them our way!
