9 Days to Moving Time!

We took a break and left the new house before dark today!!  
Painting windows in the Master Bedroom
We committed to a fellowship dinner group
that will meet monthly so
we scrubbed most of the paint off our hands 
rejoined society for the evening.

And now since I'm not tired,
I can blog before bed!

My big accomplishment this weekend has been getting
the second coat on the kitchen ceiling.


BUT by the end of cutting in around all those edges,
I was beginning to think that a plain old ceiling would have been just fine. 

Not really,
but it was definitely a strain on this middle aged neck!

Other happenings this week have been that the new tile setter
Johnny M, is working at lightening speed. 

Yes, there's a new tiler.
... a long story better forgotten.

No grout yet, but here's the floor sink by the back door
 It'll be used for dog paws, muddy boots etc.
Everyone insists on calling it the dog shower,
but whatever the name, it's sweet!!


Heavy equipment everywhere as grading is being done
and the septic system is being installed. 

Nine days until we move out of the rental..... OMG!

The house is weeks away from completion
and I honestly haven't a clue where we're going to put our furniture.

But we've graded out a pad for the living quarters horse trailer
so we won't be homeless.

  5. Yikes I missed two of your posts! I can't believe it's almost moving in day! Everything is looker more and more like home, instead of framework and concrete flooring. You have worked so very hard, I know you can't wait for all the big stuff to be done.
    The view out of your windows is amazing. Love the dog shower, and the kitchen cupboards, and the new front door, with sidelights. A Shenandoah Thanksgiving! A Mountain Christmas! Beautiful! Now be careful with all that climbing, painting staining lifting cleaning carting...........

  6. Everything is really looking great. Especially the kitchen ceiling. Doggy Shower?????? Beatrice usually just hoses me down before letting me inside.
    Furniture???? Could you store it in the horse part of the trailer????? How 'bout the basement???? But with a view like you have, who cares. Just sit back and enjoy. The new front door looks great too.

  8. Grace, you home is looking better each time you post some photos. Good luck on clearing out of the rental and finding a place for your furniture and other stuff.
