Home Build – Week 15
This week our home was getting the final touches. The appliances got delivered and hooked up. The lighting and electrical was finished (we still have some pendants to put up), the final trim work was completed, the house got cleaned, the towel bars and mirrors were put up in the bathroom, the fireplace was completed, and finally the yard was seeded.
Thursday this week we did a final walk through with the builder and noted a few items that will get touched up on Monday. Also, we signed off on the final payout, which will allow us to occupy the house once our lender disperses funds. Friday our lender got a completion certificate from his appraiser. Now it’s really just a matter of getting the the title company to coordinate with the lender for the final payment. Lastly, once this is all settled, our construction loan will be converted to a conventional 30 year fixed rate mortgage. We should be moving in by Tuesday evening! 🙂 If anybody is up for some heavy lifting, come on over. We’ll supply pizza, beer, and soda!
Today, we did sneak a few boxes into the basement in attempt to clear up space in our condo for more packing. We also, met the cable guy and got that all hooked up (a bit more involved with new construction). Lastly, we put up the shower rods (thanks to a friendly reminder that a shower after moving day is a good thing). Oh, and earlier this week, we installed an invisible pet fence, Happy Birthday Dyna.
Day 105 – 3 Days and counting.
