Well, it's finally here

We moved in a week ago and this time last week we had spent our first night in the new house. Still finding odds and ends and unpacking boxes AND needing to clear out the condo, but life in the new house is settling into something of a routine. 

and then, of course, due to last Saturday's wind storm:

11th hour kinks

Well, as luck would have it, this last round of inspections is creating a ton of last minute work for us, and the clincher was yesterday, when the County's ROW inspection produced the following to-do list:

  • pave the ROW approach, minimum 20' x 10'
  • cut out the pavement at the old driveway access that attaches to the existing road.
  • clear trees to the north of the driveway.  15' north of your driveway they want nothing above 4' 6" tall.
  • add straw to the uphill side of the old driveway.

  • After Tasha and I scoped the area last night, #3 and #4 should be no biggie but the contractor is scrambling to make #1 and #2 happen this week.

    Please cross everything ya got. :(

    Last mile odds and ends

    Mirrors and towel bars and other details are in place at last, and like real live homeowners we spread some bales of straw to keep the mud under control as the rains roll in. 

    Less than two weeks and this will be home!
