A Dry Run
And...ta da...the dryer is damaged.
They brought the new dryer a week later:
And...ta da...that dryer is damaged too.

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.

The scents and textures were inspired from her visit to Oregon a some weeks back.

First Night in the New House
Our first night in the house. So nice.
In the last few days, a massive effort transformed the dirty project-space into a home.

OK to Occupy!
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.

The mirror in the upstairs guest bathroom has always been an unknown for us. We discussed various design ideas for that sink area, but decided to wait for a final decision.

Overheard on the Jobsite
Said the concrete contractor as the neighbor's hen wandered ever closer to the freshly troweled steps.

Beginning to Move In
Lisa started carrying some belongings over. And of course she starts with the things most dear to her...

Garage Doors Installed
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.

Not sure how well you can see it, but thousands of bees are swarming in a cloud above the south fence.

Cooktop Installed, Tile Backsplash
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.

Garage Door Progress
Lap joints, screws, and plenty of construction adhesive should keep this dimensionally stable for the future.

The steps to the kitchen were pretty wonky, and the paving in front of the Dining Room door didn't slope enough to drain (puddle).
Luckily, they agreed to 'make it right'.

Completed Lower Landing
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.
