We received our permanent CO last Wednesday (July 1st) after demolition completed and all the appropriate inspections passed. Can you believe there are demolition inspections as well, like you might screw that up?!?@??!#?

Anyway, we will be converting our loan to be our permanent mortgage next week and received the final 10% draw from the bank, which helped us replenish savings we had at project start. We did well budget-wise, but now the real fun starts with interior decorations and such. We got quite a bit of new furniture, but not nearly all we need. The house will be empty for a while, but I am very proud of my recent Home Goods purchases of area rugs and runners throughout the downstairs and also in the upstairs hallway space. I visited about 12 stores to complete the set of large rugs (11x8) down to small 2x4's, but all work great and were well worth the many shopping expeditions. I even got my sister-in-law addicted to Home Goods in the meanwhile.

We also submitted deck plans for the rear of our house earlier this week and are waiting for township approval and zoning sign-off. Hopefully, we'll have a deck done by early/mid August to enjoy for part of this summer. I've been pricing Trex and am really gung-ho about composite decking vs. real wood that requires lots of maintenance, not to mention poses splinter hazards galore!

See pics below: This is probably close to my final post in this blog as we have come to the end of our project. Thank you all for following the progress along and for the well wishes, questions, and comments I've received throughout. It's nice to know others are sharing in our delight and amazement!
