The house is complete, but we still need to wait until June 25th for the closing. We go to the big walk-through/inspection on June 18th. It's so exciting to be so close now! We might have to wait a little bit for the landscaping, but our plans were approved. That's the biggest step to almost being done.

The stucco is starting to go up on the house, but it still needs to be painted. I'm hoping next Sunday we will some more details on the outside. We were also given an official closing date of June 25th at 10am. It's so exciting to have an end date. We've also been working with a landscaper to finalize a plan for that. We just have the month of May to get through and most of June. May is already going by fast with the boys' school. Lots of stuff going on there! New house! And next school year, we will have a first grader. O_o
Lots going on on the inside of the house. This is the boys' bathroom.
This is the garage with all the doors for the house.
This is the hallway towards the boys' rooms. The door on the left is Sebastian's room, and the door on the right is Cedric's room. I love the arched windows!
This is the kitchen area. You can see the wood floors that haven't been stained yet.
This is the laundry/mud room that you enter into from off the garage.

We did our pre drywall walkthrough today, and it is looking just as great on the inside as it is on the outside. We have still been given the mid June date for our closing, and it can't come fast enough.
Our nice view from our master bath window.
Looking from the master bath into the master bedroom.
Looking from Cedric's room into the hallway. Sebastian bedroom is to the right at the end.
John modeling in front of the stairs. The staircase will be open concept into the basement, and it will have iron rods along the banister.

We have a roof and most of the windows are in. It looks like a house now! We didn't get out to do much walking around because of the snow, but John did get some back views from the greenbelt. We're very excited with the progress, and we can't wait to see what next week will bring. :)

After a very grueling weekend of having to evacuate from our house for hours at a time, we were pleasantly surprised to find out at ten in the morning on Monday, March 4th, that we had a bid for our house. In less than three days, we are going through the final process of inspections, appraisals, and other hoops you jump through to have your home official sold. Now, we need to replace the furnace and find a place to live. We also have to be out of our house by April 1st. Now the fun begins!

Week two, and we have the foundation. It's moving along nicely! We are going to put our current home on the market March 1st. Finishing up last minute details to make it look nice for showings. Had a new ceiling light replaced in our kitchen, and John will be painting the family room this weekend. I've already taken all the personal pictures off the wall, and I have several boxes packed already.

They started digging our hole for our new house on Friday, February 1, 2013. We plan on going there every Sunday to keep track of the progress, and take a picture. We are so excited to finally see something happening over there. They gave us a rough estimate of mid June for it to be done. I'm hoping they lay the foundation this week. *Fingers crossed*
