Less than a week!

This past weekend was a flurry of activity on our parts and the contractors'. My Mom and Dad came down to help out. Mom and I packed up a storm, being careful not to pack the pooch.

Dad and Rob built the rest of the fence, so that the pooch doesn't escape once we move in.

Here's a view of the driveway side of the house. There will be one more wooden step on the concrete slab at some point.

Here's a view into the new room and through to the kitchen from outside--you can see the Mexican Tile Green and a bit of the Honey Dew in the kitchen. As I post, Rob is at the house making sure that the cabinets are all installed correctly.

And here is the opposite view, from the living room, through the kitchen to the new room. At this point, the walls are fully painted, no spackling in sight.

We won't have a kitchen sink or dishwasher for a couple weeks because those won't be installed until the countertop comes, which can't be ordered until measurements on the installed cabinets are made, which should happen in the next day or so. But things are coming together better than I expected last week at this time. Keep sending good thoughts!

Everything looks wonderful. What will you do without a sink?

abi's mom said...

Use the bathtub or bathroom sink. Eat out a lot.

A couple weeks without a sink is nothing. Use paper plates.. at least you will be in your house!

Where is the Christmas tree going?

abi's mom said...

We didn't have a sink when we moved in the first time, either, so it'll be just like old times!

Or something like that.

I think it'll go in the new room.
