I said it was going to be a turbulent thrill ride, but wow, it feels like the car jumped the tracks in the past week. Last Saturday the buyers of my current home changed their mind in the final hours before closing. Unfortunately I already went thru all the trouble to move my furniture and belongings into storage because their closing was supposed to be before my new house. So now I'm still in my current house using cardboard moving boxes as furniture. It's like I'm camping indoors. But wait, there's more! On the same day my buyers crashed the deal, Jenn decided that the new house build and the loss of the buyers wasn't enough of a challenge, so she decided to turn her Kia Soul into an accordion. She walked away unscathed. The Kia will be in intensive care for a while. Additionally, due to unforeseen circumstances, my new house closing date will be moved out a bit. I'm not sure of the new date yet but that's okay because things are turning around! With my current home on the market just a couple of days, new buyers snatched it up! They will close well after I'm in the Verona so no more pressure to get out. It's all good! So here's a completely randomized set of photos current as of today. Since I've posted last the carpet has been installed along with the dishwasher and oven. Final grading has begun and "Pointing up" the inside can now begin. Still waiting on the stone work to begin on the front, I'm anxious to see that done. Hopefully they will save some caulk for Thomas' Ravenna!
|That's the Stainmaster Carpet Cushion. It's water proof so spills sit on top of the carpet|
and can be cleaned up before they soak through to the floor.
|Haven't done the barefoot test yet, but this feels pretty nice! I like the new carpet smell!|
|Stone and brick coming soon!|
|All the appliances are installed.|
|Sneak a peak at the Great Room carpet.|
|Morning Room fixture. I also had a ceiling fan rough-in installed here if I decide to install a fan.|
|Someone left the seat up.|
|Handrails painted to match the Saddle hardwoods.|
|Here you can see the attic access and the light which had to be offset to accommodate the access door. By default the attic steps normally go in a bedroom on the Verona.|
|Thats a reflection of the window in the tub that you're seeing in the mirror.|
|What to do here!|
|Mowing the front should take roughly 60 seconds.|
