House Update #27: We’re here!

Things have been crazy in this push to finish the house. The great news is that we are actually living here now. We got our temporary occupancy permit in June so we’ve been here a little over a month. It’s been amazing! The house isn’t finished yet; I have a minimal kitchen and we only have one bathtub but it’s so wonderful to actually be living here after 3 years of planning and working. We still have a decent amount of stuff to do: finish the kitchen, master bathroom, cabinets all over the house, baseboards and other trim, and unpack a lot of boxes. But we still have tons of help from family and friends, so it’s going pretty well. Here are some pictures:

Thanks for following along with us and for all your help and encouragement! We’re excited to be done soon (finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel) and looking forward to having family and friends over to enjoy the house.
