Only 2 more days!!!!!!!!!

So we can't believe it's finally here! All of this time and now only 2 more nights until we have keys to our new house! We close on Monday at 2pm. So exiting!!

Now to figure out which projects to start on first. There's a few small projects to do right away but the major ones will most likely happen after winter depending on weather. First will be building bedroom 4 wall, updating bathroom vanities, installing ceiling fans, pendant lights, kitchen back splash, and painting. Outside I'm going to try and get my shed built before the first snowfall but not sure if I'll have the time. Haven't really decided on placement yet either. Fence is also on the list before spring but I need more info from the township about height. When I spoke to the last week they said since we have a corner lot the side yard is considered a front yard and can only be a 4 ft. fence on that side. We wanted to install a 6 ft. fence. It can be changed we will just have to go through the process first.

We've been out furniture shopping lately and finally ordered a new sectional for the family room. We looked at so many table sets and finally decided on one with a matching server. We Also ordered 2 bar height chairs for the kitchen island to match.

 I'll post some updates pics once we get in the house.


  1. Frank that's so awesome! Carolyn and I are so happy for you guys. We're scheduled for settlement one month from tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up on the fence, that is close to top of the list for us. I guess i'll give the twp. a call and get more info. Can't wait to see new pics.

  2. Thanks guys. Yea it's a crazy feeling knowing it's so close. Hopefully the next month goes fast for you guys also! Yea I'm going to the township Monday morning and I'll let you know what they say. You guys have the dog right so I'm sure the fence is a must for you guys. I haven't been by the house in a few weeks I can't wait to go see the neighborhood!

    1. Thanks for getting the info from the twp. i've been looking through the twp. code for the past half hour and I think my eyes went crossed. we do have the dog, so fence has always been on the list for us.

      It seems like the neighborhood activity has slowed down a bit. For at least a couple of weeks no new homes had been started. A few times we drove through and it seemed like a ghost town. We did see that the people in the rome in near the park moved in.

  3. Frank- your "to do" list is the same as ours. It's pretty funny when you tell people you want to change things and they are like "but you just built!"

    We have 3 dogs, so a fence is way high on the list. I know what you mean about looking through all the documents trying to figure out what you can and can't have. I am pretty sure we have been looking for about 3 months and still can't figure it out!

    Can't wait to see pics of the house when you close! Have fun Monday!

  4. Congrats one day early on closing! It's a very "pinch me" feeling a few days out. Hope to see pics!

  5. Enjoy your Monday and congrats to you! Can't wait to see your pictures once you are in!

  6. So happy for ya'll!!! Fingers crossed everything goes well tomorrow! Woohoo!!!

  7. Hope everything went well yesterday.

  8. Thanks everyone!!! Closing went smooth and we now officially own our new home! We picked our son up from daycare went to the model grabbed our other keys and spent about 20 min letting him run around. Crazy part is that's the only time a spent there so far. We have a busy week but Saturday the movers are set up and we can't wait. I'll update with some pics hopefully today.
