Electrical walk-through? Check!

Nick, Rosie & I drove down Friday night & arrived (too) EARLY Saturday morning.  While the drive was beautiful (we saw moose, black bear & porcupines), it was exhausting & we felt like zombies all weekend... =/  Saturday though we did drive out to the house & that was exciting.  It's so cool to get to see this come together just how we want it to!  We spent about a half hour just wandering through & getting our bearings.

Again, we think it's beautiful.  =)

We completed the electrical walk-through, so now they can start roughing in the wiring.  We discussed where the electrical outlets & phone/tv/cable wiring would go as well as where the lighting fixtures would be installed.  The plumbing is already roughed in, so both of those will be completed in the next few weeks.  While we were there, people showed up with the heating duct work & the garage heater had already been installed.

It was REALLY great to walk around the house & actually see the room sizes & figure the furniture layout.  We were wishing that it was all done & that we could stay!

 I love the big front window!

this is going to be the fireplace mantel, it's an absolutely beautiful piece!

the darker, charcoal-y blue you see on the shakes will be our house color, 
then the trim & all doors will be white

Thats all of the pictures for this trip, hopefully my parents are willing to drive out the next few weekends, as we aren't sure when we need to come back down.  The builder isn't ready to update the closing date yet, but...  IF we had to guess, barring any problems, issues, snafus or uh-ohs - we would say maybe it will be truly ours in mid-August???  Again, just a guess, but they seem to be moving along on it at a very good speed.  So, I guess we will all just wait & see!


  1. Leah this is so beautiful. I am happy for you and Nick (and Rosie too - she'll have so much room in this house she's gonna get lost).
