Closing in November…

I just heard from our realtor who said we are on track to close on our new house in November!  I’m so excited.  From the outside, our house still looks like this:

7 Oct

However, a lot of work has happened on the inside of the house this past week.  Rough electrical, plumbing, gas and they are getting started on pouring the driveway in back.

November is earlier than I was expecting the house to be finished.  But let me be clear my expectations have been low.   I heard from so many people to expect delays when building a new home.  Our builder told us 180 working days, so I was thinking December or even January so to hear November is amazing.

My mind is racing now with the things we must get done before moving in.  We have a washer, but still need a dryer.  The kitchen appliances have all been purchased. Window coverings (curtains, blinds, paper taped to the window?) of some kind are a “must have” in my book.  We have enough furniture to fill out most of the rooms. Everything else can wait and be added slowly over time. And then there is actual moving to think about; you know what, let’s not think about it now 🙂

What are your must have items when you move in to a new house?

  1. 1. Lots of family to help you move (let me know when and I might be available) 2. Stove (which you have)
    3. Internet right away, the installers for us were booked up for over a month which was no fun.

  2. Change your mailing addresses, drivers license change…. And line up some Pizza and Beer for the friends that will be helping you move in!
