Living in a Partially Done House....

We moved on Saturday & Sunday! 

Whew was that exciting and hard work. 

When we moved in we had:
  • No air conditions
  • No working kitchen sink
  • No pots or pans
  • No hot water
  • No Internet 
  • No interior doors
  • No ice 
  • No smoke alarms 
  • No silverware or dishes

So needless to say our first night and morning were a wake up call about how much I think I deserve all these "conveniences" - because lets face it majority of people in the WORLD don't have access to AC, hot water, Internet, or ice - and a lot of them have no need for interior doors. So I really shouldn't complain - but man are we living a privileged life here in Middle Class America. (OK my rant is done!)

In our defense, it was hot out this week. With temperates in the low 90s in the afternoon this brick house soaked it up and was pretty warm in the evenings - try around 85 in the house at bedtime. Tempers were  a litter higher than usual for all three of us, too!

But TODAY - we are getting a new HVAC - hallelujah. Thank you Jesus!

Those house is livable but still unfinished in many aspects. By now we do have a working kitchen sink, pots, pans, ice, Internet, silverware, and a bathroom door!

Life is good around here - enjoying our new home and neighborhood.  This weekend we will be cleaning out and saying goodbye to our old apartment! Sorry new house - you'll have to wait until next weekend to get more doors!

Moving In Progress


We have been moving, moving, moving for the past week or so! How exhausting. We have been taking small trips over everyday with a trailer attached to our Accord. Needless to say, we can't take ALOT - but we are slowly emptying out our apartment.

The house is far from done- there are a lot of little touch ups that need to be finished (trim, window casings, interiors doors, etc). But those will come in due time.

We have been focusing on getting our Kitchen and Bathroom done - so its livable!

Here is how to the house is looking currently and we rush to finish the Kitchen this week.

I grouted the floor last weekend and installed that fan - all by myself!  Wohoo!

Living Room
This is the fan that shocked me. I totally forgot to cut the power before I touched the wires while installing the fan. Man did that tingle!  No harm was done and I didn't fall off the ladder.


Kids Room


We have moved all out boxes and stuff into the basement of the house. This weekend we'll be working on moving furniture - and hopefully sleeping in this house by Monday night.

Also - our HVAC broke a month ago in this house - so that will hopefully be fixed by Monday, too! (By the way - replacing a HVAC is crazy expensive!)

Until next week.....
