Interior Details - Part 3

We are so close now.  We got our Certificate of Occupancy from the Municipality almost 2 weeks ago.  Since then, there has been a pretty constant push to finish.  There was a little tension on the job site between what I would call the "40+ hour folks" and the small crew that seemed to think 28 hours a week was enough.  I have been frustrated and disappointed by that aspect of the build, and have said so many times over the last couple months to our contractor, but nothing changed.  Oh well, moving on.

Meanwhile, things did get done.  There is now only a one-page list of little items that need to be completed. Our foreman checks on those items every day and our hard-working painter will be around for another week or two doing touch ups and finishing out the garage.

The appraiser guy came by today for more photos.  I hope it is done enough that we can finalize our long-term mortgage.

Here are a few photos from today:

I am kind of in love with my kitchen, despite its missing parts (a little paint on the hood, lighting in the stained glass cabinet, a dish hutch, and two tall china cabinets to complete the archway - all coming soon).  We cleaned it all up last night for the the appaiser guy, so most of my pics are of the kitchen. 

That is November sun shining in the windows at about 10:30am!  I was loving that today.


Living room (bad iPhone pic) - I am pretty pleased with the way the fireplace came together.  I am looking forward to a getting a fire going in it the night we move in.

 Southwest corner of the living room at about 3:30pm this afternoon.

 Master bath vanity all ready for us to move in.

Kids' bath vanity - custom color chosen by our kids.  All three kids looked at the Sherwin-Williams fan deck and agreed on this color and I said "Ok, let's do it!"  I couldn't believe they picked a color together so quickly.  It is fun splash of color in our mostly-white house.

I am so ready, except there is much packing to be done at the current house.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will able and ready to move in this coming weekend.
