House Update!

So, we finally got the boiler in and working. Well, it was working.....we were cutting our cedar boards for our window sills and we think it clogged up the boiler or something. So, we are calling a boiler guy to come tune it for us. It needed done anyways, just more money. We are working on flooring and plumbing right now and Phil is over getting the HRV system finished. It's down to the end stuff now and it is pretty fun working on it all. I helped do a bunch of the wiring and was getting pretty good at it, though my fingers didn't agree.

I am looking forward to seeing the tiling get done around my bathtub and will be posting pictures of the finished project pretty soon. The carpet people are coming out tomorrow to measure so we can get the carpet ordered and they should be out to install it while Phil is gone in a couple of weeks. Josh is going to come over soon and get the phone lines finished up so that will be another thing off the list. Let's see.....what else? Well, pretty much when Phil gets home we should be moving in and it will just be a matter of staining doors and hanging trim. I am SUPER excited. In a month we should be moved in!!! So, while Phil's gone I'm going to be packing and cleaning and organizing. I may even take a little trip down to see my parents for a week. We'll see.....Phil is pretty overprotective about me going down there by myself with the kids. It kind of all depends on what I need to be doing here. With Dana having her baby and things getting done at the house. We'll see!!! Just praying about it and waiting to see what happens! So, just a little update and like I said. I will be posting pictures after some more stuff starts getting done!

Oh my,,, You have no idea how excited I am for you. That first night of sleeping in the home you built is like nothing else. I guess I will never experience that again. But I will live through you! Love you!

We are so happy for you, Jenn. Such a lot of work, but such a wonderful reward in the end.
I will miss having you right by me.
