Second Week of December: CRUNCH TIME


More tiling in the bathroom and laundry room



Electricians began the final steps of finishing outlets, switches and hanging lights

Tankless hot water heater was installed in the garage


Doors and tongue & grove wood for the porch ceilings delivered

Electricians continued

We continued with numerous trips to Home Depot and Lowes

Craig and Braden began installing doors



Garage door hardware installed

Soffits and fascia installed

Electricians continued – electrical breaker box, coach lights, chandeliers and kitchen pendants over the island

More bathroom tiling

Final purchases of ceiling fans, vanity lights, faucets and a pot filler

Note to self: purchase items earlier if we ever do this again — we had been looking but had not made any decisions as stores change their inventory and we did not have anywhere to store anything – wishing we already had this step completed 🙂


Picture does not do this justice as the lighting is off and it’s dust covered, but the pendant lighting was hung…hood will be installed next week…sticky notes detail the size of the cabinet hardware…we are almost there…

We are so happy with our Adams Cabinets



Adams MultiCare


Plumbers began their final steps of finishing pipes and installing toilets

Installation of the soffits continued

Roofer installed the final vents


Land prep outside

Installation of the soffits continued

A/C installed along with vents and kitchen hood


Front steps were made

Soffit and fascia installation continued


Land prep trucks and digger clearing the mound out back, scraping the driveway and prepping the land

Hindsight…we wish that we would have had the electrician and plumber begin their process sooner as they could have worked while the cabinets were being installed. However, we remind ourselves that we just started this project 8 months ago!

The big question is when will inspections be completed as we will finalize a moving date very soon!!!  Our rental house agreement ends December 31st!
