House update!

I have so many other blogs to post, but I'm skipping ahead to the house because I'm SO excited! Things are starting to come together, we feel so close to being done. I think it helps to have other people working on the house for us... what a treat!!! Being the GC on a house in the future would feel like a breeze compared to the work Trever has put in during the last two years.

Here are some pics of the recent changes. The tile work should be complete by the end of the week, possibly sooner. Our finish plumbing has begun and will hopefully be complete by the 4th of July, it takes a bit longer since our plumber is doing the work in the evenings. I still need to schedule the last bit of painting for next week, then order carpet to be installed in early July. Trever has a bit of electrical to finish and then we can call for final inspection!!! Hopefully we'll be moving in during the 2nd or 3rd week of July!!!!!

I LOVE the kitchen tile and back splash, one of the few decisions that I have loved instantly. To be honest though, the counter tile was a change of heart, we used the original tile for the kids bathroom and laundry room.

Our beautiful, VERY LARGE, island is in place. To give it perspective, I can lay along the width of it and I don't hang off :)... we're ready for a party!

Kids bathroom. The back splash is glass/marble mosaic.

I can't wait for the grass to be ready! In 6 weeks we should be able to start enjoying this beautiful yard!!

This is so exciting! So much has happened since I saw it last!!! Your backyard will be beautiful...does Trever get a riding lawn mower to go with it?:)
