Man, time has been flying by! I have been so busy with the house, work (travel), personal life.... I am feeling tired and ready to be in the house! Every weekend working at the house and all weekdays working on getting out of the rental has just been exhausting. The lease on our rental is up in the end of April and we hoped to be out, but that is not going to happen. We are now shooting for the end of May. Drywall was completed about a week ago. We spent a few days prepping the house for paint. We used a leaf blower to blow out all the drywall dust.... so much dust! Then we taped off the floors, windows, and doors. We hired a friend with a paint sprayer to come prime the hole house and paint all the ceilings. We got all that done in one (long) day. This last weekend we got the main living area painted (kitchen, living room, loft). At the peak of the house I had to stand on a ladder on the scaffolding. It was pretty scary! We have also continued to work on siding, we have made good progress and are probably 90% complete, but then I feel like we have a lot of detail work to go. Cabinets were delivered last week. We had them put them in the garage. Appliances were also delivered to the garage. We had a nightmare experience with Home Depot. When I ordered them I didn't check a box to put in the delivery address (vs the billing address which is our rental). And we talked to them several times and they could not change the address without canceling the order and redoing it, but we bought the appliances at black Friday so we could not be guaranteed the same prices. We ended up bribing the delivery guys and apparently $40 wasn't enough, but $80 was. I am feeling annoyed, but glad it is over. Hopefully they all work! My husband has been working with our electric company to get power to the house. Both our permit and theirs has been approved. They should be placing a pole at our property line some time soon, and my husband plans to trench the line out on Friday. I think the current completion date is April 18. We decided to do epoxy floors. We have a neighbor that is getting ready to build a house that does garages for a living. He volunteered to help us out since my husband has been giving him the good contractors we have used and he has been answering questions. This weekend we have to prep (clean the floors) because he is coming out the weekend of April 7. This means we will have to pause the painting, but we need to do this so we can get the cabinets installed next. I need to get some pictures from the family because I have been bad and haven't taken any. I will try to post some soon!
