The Moving Month is at Hand!

Sometime this month, we move in!!!! It will probably be around the 24th, but maybe sooner, if all goes smoothly the next two weeks.  Last week they finished most of the painting, except for some special metallic paint treatments in the master bedroom and bath.  They also installed most of the granite counter tops.  This week I won’t be allowed to hang out much, and neither will anyone else, as they are staining all the hardwood floors.  But next week:  look out!  It’s the do or die week:  plumbers, electricians, stair railings, trim carpenters, gym and shower glass doors and walls, mirrors, garage floor, garage doors, and more.  So fun!

I love the fireplace!  It still needs the sealant on the stone, which will intensify the colors

The basement bar.  Still need to grout and seal the brick floor (from the original house's bricks) and pick a back splash.
