Let there be light

Friday, March 26, 2010
Happy Spring Everyone! It is really starting to look like a house! All the lights are now installed and look great. They are also finished with the wood floors and tile (see tile shower picture). Bathroom cabinets are in and the appliances are delivered. Countdown to close: 55 days!

Side "friends entrance"...still not completely sure what the purpose of it is, but I am sure we will use it since it is there.

Lots of cabinet space! No more keeping our china in the guest bedroom closet!

We love, love our dining room fixture. You cannot imagine how much we agonized over it in the lighting store. We just couldn't find anything we liked, and wound up ordering out of one of their catalogs (which is scary considering you can't see it in person, or return it if you don't like it). But we are so glad we went with it, cause it looks great!

Granite, cabinets, and floors oh my!

Tons of new things appearing in our house! The concrete has been poured for the driveway, walkways, and porches. Cabinets have been installed in the kitchen and bathrooms and the granite has been installed in the kitchen. They are working on the tile in the bathrooms, laundry, and around the fireplace. They are also working on the enormous amounts of hardwood in the house. It all looks so good! You can also see from the pictures that they are working on the pool at the end of the cul-de-sac. That will be so fun this summer!

We are 60 days out from closing and that means we were able to get our mortgage rate locked in this past week! It is awesome that the rates have stayed down these past few months! Benton says that everything is still on track and that May 20th is a firm date for closing! Yay!!!

The East's were in town last weekend and we had the most productive weekend ever shopping for the house. We made a day trip down to Gaffney for the pottery barn outlet and to say we hit the motherload is an understatement. We even had to rent a penske truck to get all the stuff back to greensboro. We loaded up on furniture at pottery barn and then hit IKEA for some great decorating and organizing stuff. Our apartment is now full of furniture...but moving in is going to be such fun!

It's been a while since I last posted so I thought I would put up some new pictures. They have put down the gravel to pour the driveway, sidewalk, and back porch. The permanent stairs are in place as well as the cubby. The cubby is super cute...and we were so glad that we were "talked into" getting it. Someday there might even be little backpacks hanging on it. : )

Andrew's parents are heading up here to NC this weekend. It will be so nice to get to visit with them and get some good shopping done for the house. Monday we are going to visit the pottery barn outlet and IKEA and hopefully we will find some good stuff. : )

Brick and siding are done outside! Inside the builders are busy working on the fireplace (see below), trim, and doors. We also hear that the cubby is in place, but we have not seen proof of that yet. : )
We are so happy with the progress and are falling more in love with our house every time we see it! We can't wait to close in May and move in!!
