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.
