To give an update to whats going on around here, we made our deadline and moved in the last weekend of September, with a functional kitchen and a mostly functional bath. The painting is still not finished yet,
Also on the unsexy but functional list we now have lights in the basement, a gravel driveway in the back yard and MOST of our stuff brought from storage in Long Beach thanks to my wonderful folks who came from New Mexico to help us out. We will see them again at Thanksgiving for a more relaxing trip.
Now that the laundry is in, I can get back to some of the more picture worthy accomplishments like finish painting and the house jacking/floor repair. I need to figure out where I am going to set the jacks in the basement so I can do some excavation so there is a stable base to hold the house with. that work will be followed by the new concrete piers and posts, I was the one that wanted this house, right?
