Which means we have experienced the vast capacity of a basement to accumulate unessential (and a few essential) items.
We do have more physical space in our new house, and possibly more in-house storage, but lack the junk-drawer-like basement space to swallow up all this schtuff. Help.

Though we still have LOTS of work left to complete (some exterior siding, landscaping, a driveway, street trees, etc.), the items the City deems necessary for occupation have been met (Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Envelope, Erosion, etc.)
We celebrated by moving over some furniture right away. The rest follows this weekend, and we'll be living here by the end of the following week.

Tools are migrating from the house, allowing us to prepare for move-in.
Now if we could just choose the second siding material, I can cover these doors and remaining bits of wall on the house and garage.

The tile backsplash, started last week, was completed today. The wood strips are temporary spacers for shelves that i still need to get to.
One of the lights we refurbished is installed now in the foreground over the island.
The countertops are not blue - that is temporary protection.
The fir flooring on the landing needs another sanding and coat of finish.
And then I can install the missing riser board (can you see it?)
And then, of course, another coat of finish on the whole thing.
