More House

It's been a while since I've last posted on the house and there have been things getting done. Here's what Brett and his parents have been doing... Wait, wait, wait, I just have to say what wonderful lifesavers Brett's parents are. They come just about everyday to help with whatever Brett needs and they work so hard! I am so grateful for them and what they are doing for us. We owe them BIG TIME!!!!!!
O.k., now on to the pictures...
Tonight, Brett's been working on the banister, YAY!!! I rarely bring Brynn over since she tried to get down the stairs by climbing over where the banister is supposed to be. Scary!! But now that that's going to be up, she'll be a little safer.
All of the light fixtures and fans are in and up, and almost all light bulbs are now in.

Kids' bedroom ceiling fans

Chandelier in the Dining Room

The backsplash in the kitchen is just about done. It has those dark little square dots (seen below) at every point of the tiles. I would have taken a picture tonight, but I was afraid to step on the hardwood just yet. We've also been held up on finishing this project since we were two little square dots short! And they take a week to be ordered and received!!! Grrrrr.

The dishwashers are in, as is the stove. The only appliances left are the double ovens and our fridge.
Can I just say how exciting this is getting. We are to the point, however, that there are a million little things have to get done because I don't want much unfinished when we move in. Otherwise, they will probably stay that way for a while and I just want things finished. So we aren't in a rush to move in and we're making sure that things get done a little at a time. But it's getting closer and I can see it and feel it.
The hardwood floors were finished today. I think our plumbing is supposed to get finished tomorrow and our carpet is going in on Friday with the vacuum system getting finished Monday. I think maybe we just might be moving in next weekend! YYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
