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 … More House Update #27: We’re here!
