I am a rockstar

Okay – not really!  But I did help a lot this week with the house – so that is kinda awesome, right?  We finished the flooring this week – but not the carpet.  That’ll go in next week, hopefully!  Truthfully, my hubby did most of the work, but I helped when I could!  One of my jobs was to measure the end pieces and cut the wood.  Pretty fancy, huh?  I knew calculus geometry addition and subtraction would come in handy some day!  he he  😉

I really like the flooring – and I’m very anxious to clean it.  WAIT – did I just say I WANTED to clean something.  Well, all this work has clearly made me a sick in the head. I hope that we like it a lot after living with it for a while! It has to be better than the tile in our last house. Really, I can hardly imagine anything worse!

What else happened this week? Well, the kitchen cabinets arrived! They weren’t supposed to come until next week – so they are a bit early. That’s odd! The installer wasn’t scheduled until this coming week though – so they sat there, all pretty in their boxes. (I made my dh take one out so I could admire it!) I can’t tell you how anxious I am to get them installed!!!!

The garage doors didn’t arrive. 😦 (That’s more typical of the construction business!) The driveway was poured, the block wall was finished and I think that’s about it for this last week. Which is a LOT! The electrician worked on receptacles (plug-ins) and light fixtures this weekend. I suspect when we stop by this evening, we’ll be able to turn on lights! So hubby’s week off was busy – but good. Things probably won’t slow down much until we move in.

    You are a rockstar! and you guys did accomplish a lot this week! Wow! Loved seeing all the pictures. Everything is amazing to me. Hope the garage doors come in this week and the cabinet installer person can get started. So much happening! Don’t know how you keep up with everything!
    Love you all,

    It must be exciting to see everything coming together! And very cool to operate that big saw. I used to love watching New Yankee Workshop on PBS (is it even on anymore?) and dream of having all that wood-working stuff!

    Didn’t you feel cool using the table saw???? You get a rush from using power tools. I remember when I help my hubby lay tile in a bathroom. I felt so cool!

    THe floors turned out great!!! Can’t wait to see what the cabinets look like!

    I’m impressed once again. I would never even know where to begin on that saw! 🙂 The floors look FANTASTIC! Wish you’d come put some in my house!
