This page will probably be of no interest to anyone. I decided to keep track of dates for the new house here just so they don’t get lost in the big pile of mush in my head.
May 7th – Out to sales office with realtor. Noticed they opened up new lots.
May8th – Money down on lot!
May 13th- Picked first set of upgrades (structure). Given an estimated move in date of December 8th. Lets see how close we get.
May 20th- Offer on our current house
June 28th – Possible closing date
June 28th – Closed on House
July 1st- Lot “mapped” out with spray paint
July 2nd – They are digging!!
July 2nd- Told close date would be November 23rd (Hoping for way sooner than that!)
July 19th – Slab poured
August 6th- Working on second story framing and roof trusses.

August 29th – Friend walked through and pointed out all the things to hubs that need to be fixed before they start drywalling next week. NEXT WEEK!!
Sept 14th- Walk through with superindentent. It sucked. They are 2 weeks behind at this point. Not what I wanted to hear. They should do insulation this week and start drywalling and stucco next week.
Sept. 25th – They are drywalling fools!! No more walking through the walls.
Sept.26th – This is going to sound SO SO silly. We went out today and we had numbers on the front of our house. It made it so real to me. I haven’t been this excited about house stuff in a long time.
Oct. 3rd – We sign papers on the 27 of November and get the keys November 30th!!
Oct.10th – Garage doors and garage door opener are up. Doors delivered.

Oct.18th – Cabinets hung!! Tile finished downstairs. Still working on upstairs tile / shower tile.
Oct. 21st – Noticed cabinets in laundry room to low.
Oct. 24th – Talked to super – Trying to decide how to fix laundry room issue. Lower the ceiling or raise the cabinets. Who knows.
Oct.24th- Nov. 30th – Finished everything else. (I was a slacker and very disappointed with our living situation at the time, and just didn’t want to think about any of it).
Nov.27th – Signed our lives away!
Nov.30th- Loan funded at 10:18. We had the keys in our hands less than an hour later.
Jan. 19th- One last update (because Vixen called me on it). We are happily adjusting to our new digs. 99% of the boxes are unpacked and put away. We have our stuff. We are together. We are happy.
