Living Laughing And Creating

Loving Life On A Budget

It’s Been 2 Months, And We’re Moving Right Along!

on November 17, 2014

We have been so busy the past couple weeks that I have neglected to post an update! Our builder was gone on a mission trip for a week, but he made sure things kept moving while he was gone. That week, he had one of his guys out here working on odds and ends, another guy working on our plumbing and electrical, and the roofers were also here for three days. On Friday, our windows were delivered and a couple of the builder’s crew showed up to install them all that day. This is what the house looked like at that point.

Our tubs and showers were also installed. It was interesting to watch them push those through the windows! I’m super excited about actually having a bath tub in this house. That was one thing I really missed having in the old house, and I made sure that was not left out when looking at plans for this one.

Last week, our electrician was the main person working, and he was very busy. The air unit was also installed. We had to make some decisions regarding our kitchen as well. On Tuesday, the custom cabinet guy came out here after I pretty much tore up his original design. I could tell this man obviously does not cook. Anyway, he was very pushy and only wanted to build what he wanted to build. After that encounter, we requested to talk to the people at a local building supply. We liked the design and cabinets they had to offer, so we went with them. I’m so glad my husband is good with color matching, because he chose our counter tops in less than 5 minutes. I would have stressed over the choices for days! So on Friday, we ordered our cabinets and counter tops. I am also in the process of shopping the Black Friday sales for appliances, because I can get a much better price now than if I wait a couple months. The good news is the store will hold them for a while, so we don’t have to find a place to store them.

Craft Room in progressI have a feeling this is going to be my favorite room in the house. This is going to be where all my craft and sewing supplies will be organized and used often! This is technically an “unfinished” bonus room, but all we’re going to have to add will be flooring.

That’s where we are right now! I can’t believe we have only been in the camper two months and have already seen this much progress on our home. We are excited to walk through the house every day and see it progress. Our only complaint is that it gets dark so much earlier! 🙂
