I stopped by the new house today. Check out the progress. The electrical work was signed off by the city, the insulation and wallboard goes in. By Friday, the house will seem like a house (instead of a disaster area). I’ve been taking pictures along the way, so I’ll post some of the good before and after’s on the site.
I am 8 weeks into construction, and I have another 4 weeks to go. I will be moving in early November. Its crazy to think how this stroke of good luck came to me….
Anyway, I’ve attached a picture of the front of the house as it looks today. The reason I decided to post the picture is because much wont change from what you see except the color. To stay on budget, there are a few things that I just cant afford to do right now:
- fixing the delapidated/leaning front porch
- add the new back deck
- replace the yard/lawn area in the front as well as on the sides
All in all, these are items that are very nice to haves, but not must-haves. Must haves are a kitchen, laundry room, bathrooms, etc.. As long as I can live in it comfortably, the rest will just have to wait.
