Shit's About To Get Real!

Just a quick update and a couple pics. There has been a little activity going on the past week. Siding has gone up for the most part, they sprayed on the first base coat of paint and they have done some grading. Miraculously, most of the water in the basement dried up. Hmmmm. Imagine that. Closing is set for 29 July, a little over 3 weeks away. It's starting to get down to crunch time. We've already let our land lord know we are moving, so we can't afford any delays. I'm big on doing things right the first time. In other words, RH better pick up their game and crack the whip on these contractors. I'm going to be watching and checking their work daily. Jen has already started packing boxes for the move. It's all happening so fast. In other words, "Shit's about to get real!"



Front of House. Hard to tell color of shutters in the evening sun,  but they are brown. Why they haven't finished the siding yet I don't know. Perhaps they ran out of siding and need to order more?

  1. Love the siding color!

    The house looks great! It seems like every time I visit our sub there will be a house that has a ton of shit in the garage to install, then two days later it will be gone. So I'm sure you will be ready to go for close!

  3. Woo Hoo! Looks good! I started packing too... trying to knock it out and not have to pack at the last minute. I just need more boxes... blah!

    1. Luckily for us, friends of ours just moved into the same hood, and we got all their boxes.

  4. Looks great!! They will have it all put together in no time- that is right where we were 3 weeks out. And they still finished early. This is a "weird" time, at least for us- there was SO much going on but we were so focused on closing. Looking back now, it's like holy shit!

    1. I'm banking on them finishing up in time to close. I'm sure these 3 weeks will fly by
