We had hoped to close on the new house before our trip to the Caribbean, but instead are closing the day after we get back...which is insanely stressful. Between packing for a week away, wrapping up work projects, and coordinating the final details of the new house, I find myself forgetting to breathe! I know it will all come together in the end, but it's stressful to say the least:)
We had our inspection on Wednesday, and our walk through with the builder yesterday. I was very pleased that our builder agreed to everything on our punch list and his landscaping plans are beautiful! Thankfully, he'll wait until we get back to plant and sod the yard so it doesn't die while we're away.
I spent more hours then I care to share pricing window treatments and going round and round trying to make my final decision. I ended up ordering fauxwood blinds with tapes for the bedrooms and plantation shutters for the living room and kitchen. I eventually want to do shutters on all of the windows, but that's just not in the immediate budget. Especially since Jackson's room alone was quoted at $750, really I don't think so!
I'll leave you with some pictures I took this week of the work in progress. I can't wait to come back from the beach and see it completed!!! Almost home sweet home, almost!!!
