Adam and I went up to the house on Saturday, and saw some new developments:
We also bought a fridge and a washer/dryer set this weekend. I do not want to even admit to myself how much time we spent debating different appliances. Sometimes there is such a thing as too much research. You’d think I would have learned my lesson after wedding planning, but apparently not. It paid off, though: I’m super excited about the washer–it has a sink! We didn’t put a utility sink in the laundry room ($$) so I’m so glad this was an option.
The house is getting really close to finished. Here’s what’s left (at least as of Saturday):
- Landscaping (evening out the lawn, sodding the front, seeding the back, planting 3 trees, and putting one mulched bed with some bushes in the front)
- Punch list issues and touch ups
- Outlet in the bathroom! (hopefully)
Tomorrow is our home inspection with the third-party company. Cross your fingers that everything goes well! This weekend we’re planning to go through the house carefully with our own punch list so we can be ready for the punch list walk through with the field manager. I found some example punch lists through Houzz that should be really useful; I’ll post them here later. We also have our homeowners’ walk through next week where we’ll learn where all the important things are (gas shut off, electric meter, etc.) and how to use the appliances, fireplace, etc. And then… closing! And moving! Yikes! :)
