We’re Moving In This Weekend!!!
Hooray! Thank God for B & C Plumbing out of Lemmon, ND. They surprised us with a call on Thursday morning, Aug 23rd saying they could start the job THAT DAY 🙂 Yes! They worked like dogs, were sweet, professional, did an amazing job and wrapped up the following Thursday, finishing at 7pm. Running water, flushing toilets, every inch of line brand new. We are thrilled. At the same time, Richard was running electrical, I was assisting everyone who needed a hand and cleaning and packing boxes. The last 2 weeks have been VERY hectic, but the time has come to move into our new forever home. The consensus is, it will be much less stressful if we live in the home we’re working on. Going back and forth is too much and keeping both houses clean and leaving the dogs for such long stretched of time is just too much on us all. These pictures don’t show the progress we’ve made…We have all the first floor lights and outlets in, all the plaster dust is gone, floors are beautiful (not perfect but clean and pretty shiny), living room window has been taken out and replaced with wall so we can mount the TV there, the stud walls are now real walls, leather on the living room side & white bead board on the entry side,first floor bath is clean with amazing old style tub faucet, new toilet and pedestal sink and new ceiling going in this weekend. The kitchen is spotless and we are ready to be there full time. We think of it as “comfy camping”.
We’ll move our few remaining things tomorrow and Richard’s friend Cory will help move the appliances on Sunday. Next week I’ll do the last thorough cleaning on this house and lock it up until it sells.
Life now begins anew 🙂
