Very Close

We are so close to having the house done.  (Well, done enough to live in, that is!)

The glass door and wall that will enclose the shower gets installed tomorrow.  And the bathtub should be installed either today or tomorrow. (Right now it’s sitting in our bedroom) On the list for tomorrow as well is the installation of the bathroom vanity tops.

My wonderful husband has the front landscaping done. He has moved over 8 tons of rock, one wheelbarrow load at a time. What a great guy! The plants will all fill in once they grow up and it should look pretty nice. Do you notice the addition of the roof tile? We were really unhappy with the way that area of the house looked – adding the tile seems to help. The lights are up – the house number is posted.

And of course, the kitchen.  I have to show you the kitchen. I love it. Yep, it is definitely safe to say that.  I am in love with the kitchen. 🙂

The cook top.

The double oven.
I never thought we could afford one….we just got a GREAT deal on it!

The sink.
I don’t think I like the faucet. Oh well. It should work for a while.

The island.
Man, I need to get the handles put onto the cabinets.

Okay – so we have a few things left, but we’re getting really close! As you can see from all of the photos, everything needs cleaned as well. The amount of dust is unbelievable!  🙂
