Busy Bees

There has been so much happening at our house in the past few days.
          Light fixtures
          Plumbing fixtures
          Wood floors
          Mail box
Tomorrow we get outside light fixtures, microwave and dishwasher installed, and early next week is carpet. We still have quite a list of things to be done, but it seems like all the big stuff is really coming together.

Half Bath
Master Bath

Mom's Bedroom

We weren't expecting them to do a bump out in her room for the hvac, but it gave her so much more space to put the wardrobes she is getting from Ikea.

Two views of Mom's main living space. She is using the bump outs for dividers between the rooms.
This pic is from the back wall of the house. The stairs are on the left wall. Bathroom is first door on left on back wall. Second door on back wall is an unfinished room that we will have finished soon after we move in. The living room is the farthest space with the kitchen along the wall where all the wiring stuff is.

This next view is the opposite direction. So I am standing in the living room looking towards the kitchen and the last bump out separates the kitchen from the dining room. The door on the right is her bedroom and then the sliding glass doors. We will be installing two windows on the far wall for more light.

And lastly here is a pic of our deck and Mom's patio area from the side of the house.

20 Days to Go!!!


  1. So excited for you guys! I can't wait to see what you do with it!

    1. Thanks Kat! It's going to be like Christmas moving in not only because of the new house, but all the furniture and thrifty finds we've accumulated. I can't wait to debuilderfy it!

  2. Hi Erin, this is awesome with your mom getting her space thought out carefully! Did you say the PM created two openings in the concrete for future windows? I suppose they need to break through the concrete etc to install the windows.

    1. The windows will be on the back morning room wall so thankfully they just had to frame them out since we have a walk out. It was great of them to help us since we've already met our quota with requests outside of the norm.

  3. Love the personal mail box!! I wish we could have gotten one!
