WE PASSED OUR FINAL INSPECTION.
(It actually happened earlier in the week…sorry for the delay in posting about it.)
Let me tell ya somethin’ about my husband. He doesn’t lolly gag. At all. Ever. Nope – not one second. Which, I must say – is why we were able to get the house built so quickly. From when we started actual construction to now has been about 6 months. I suppose builders go quickly – but I think most owner-builders are much slower. In fact – I was speaking to a lady today who did the same thing as us…only it took them 18 months!!! Of course, the pay off has been that my hubby has been averaging 3-4 hours of sleep per night for the past 2 months.
ANYWAY so we passed our final inspection and he came straight home and started packing. Good thing I had started to sort things already! He has been moving a bit over each day….and tomorrow I get to start unpacking. (Most the of big furniture he’ll move this weekend….the fabric won’t be moved until sometime next week.) He figured I should have something to do while I wait on the phone guy and the gas man. Don’t worry – there is much more than this picture shows. I figure I have enough to keep me busy from 7am to midnight. (I’m NOT joking – this is the time window the gas company gave me! I sure hope they show up before midnight. he he)
So I never showed you some of the finished results. Heck, I rarely showed you in progress pictures either. Oh well, too late for that! So what should we examine… First – the stairs. I think they are beautiful. And I’m glad – cuz they were a constant headache. Okay, maybe not constant (that’s me being “Melanie”dramatic as my husband likes to say) but they did cause their share of grief. All’s well that ends well, eh?
And now, the shower. I think I like the shower. I for sure like the way it looks, but I’ll admit I am a bit concerned about keeping it clean. When sorting through things I never found our squeegee thingy. Guess I will need to buy a new one! And you can see a little peak of our tub. Can’t wait to use that! (and yes, for those of you in doubt, I used our last tub quite often. Very relaxing!)
Certainly the next 6 months and beyond will be filled with projects getting the house nice and cozy. For now, I’m just thrilled we will have one house to live in….and I’ll have my husband back!
