The move


Well today is officially our first full day in the new house. We moved all of our stuff yesterday. We had people from church show up to help us move in which was a great help. It took about 1 hour to get it out of the truck and into our living room. It should now only take us three weeks to get it out of our living room to a more permanent location.

In general though, we've been moving along. We put the appliances in and had the cabinets and carpet installed this week.

We put in some new lighting fixtures in various locations in the house. Yesterday we also had some friends come through town that have been planning to stay with us for some time. That really added to our urgency to make the house livable. Livable included things like put some doors on the bedrooms and bathrooms, get a shower curtain up, get a light in the bathroom, put blinds on windows, etc. We got a lot of it done but not quite as much as we had been planning. One example is the doors. We were planning on putting up white doors. Unfortunately there just wasn't time to paint the doors, so for now, they just had to go back up. Because we're lucky, we got the the laundry room door on our room-complete with a hole for the cat door.

Turns out, somewhere in the home renovation, we lost a 30 in X 80 in door. How do you lose a 30x80 door? I'm still not entirely sure but I am sure that we have no idea where it is and that our room is not private to cats, children or small burglars.

Your kitchen looks awesome! I can't wait to come and visit! I'm so happy for myself (and you of course)!

Yah!! Pictures! It looks wonderful. It looks like you decided to go with the U-shape in the kitchen. Look at it this way--if you ever get locked out of your bedroom, you can send a very "small" person in to unlock the door. Love ya!

I love cat doors. We had a lot in our house. They add a lot to the romantic ambiance of the master bedroom. THe house looks awesome. I really love your kitchen. Good luck getting unpacked.

Don't think of it as a cat door. Think of it as a little puppet theatre. Just add a little curtain.

Now that you've bought a house, and are all moved in, you should sell it and move back to Utah to be closer to us!!!
Love the house BTW:)
