House Update

 

Newsflash!  We officially have power.

Beautiful lights everywhere!  And what a joy it is to walk into The Money Pit and switch on a light without having to run a power cord!

This is seriously one huge milestone!  Imagine, water connected AND power!  Who would have thought!

Next week the hot water service is being installed and the following week the floors will be sanded and polished.  While they "cure" for a week, we hope to install the stainless steel wire along the verandah.

Today we cleaned up inside the house, removing cardboard and plastic and general building debris to get ready for the floors to be done.  I can't wait to see what they look like!

And I have three bathrooms to clean this week, and you know what?  I'm going to enjoy every minute of it!

We are so close, so close to moving into our dream home. 

I am so excited, and very proud of what we have achieved.  The long hard years, and yes, they have been very difficult at times, will fade into our memory as we enjoy our new home.

Christmas on the deck!  Yes please!

You won't know yourself with all the time you'll have when your house is finished. You'll have to build the chooks a new mansion just to keep yourself busy :)
