The Excitement is Building (T- minus 2)

The time is almost here. In just a short 2 days we will be moving into our new house. It’s not just Tracy and I that are getting excited the girls are too. When you ask Olivia what colour her room is she emphatically says BLUE, and she would rather come in the house than watch her video… that says something right there. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Sophie isn’t saying much… but that is to be expected… but she is very comfortable crawling around in the sawdust and she too doesn’t want to stay in her car seat.

As of December 7th we were completely floored. The last rooms to be done where the girls rooms and they received carpet. After watching "Sarah’s House" [Sarah Richardson from HGTV] we decided to put carpet in the girls rooms… thanks Sarah. We want them to play on the floor and a soft floor is much nicer to play on.

Since my last post here is quick run-down of what else has happened:

  • Baseboards were installed
  • Both interior and exterior lights installed
  • Door bell and buttons
  • Front Step Installed
  • Vanity light for 1/2 bath installed. Really this time!
  • All remaining kitchen cabinets were installed and the pony wall too
  • Requested a replacement for the open-shelved cabinet as a door was installed in it accidentally. It should be installed tomorrow
  • Handles on Kitchen and Vanity cabinets were installed. In total we have 6 different handle lengths on our cabinets and they look GREAT!
  • Light rail and crown mounding on Kitchen cabinets installed
  • Garage door opener and garage lights were installed
  • Over the Range Microwave/Vent combo installed
  • Miscellaneous plumbing and electrical

Move-in day is Thursday and the rest of our appliances will be arriving tomorrow. The only things that will NOT be done before we move in are: the granite countertop, but it will be installed on Friday; and the back splash, which will be installed shortly after the countertop.

So we’re ready to move in, now we just have to finish packing and have 2 more sleeps… like we’ll be sleeping tomorrow night. ๐Ÿ™‚
