Hi, it’s me….MamaVia….
While we wait for Kelly to recover from her Cat Bites Hand That Feeds…I’ll update with a (VERY) few photos. I’m guessing that last week not much happened at the house because they had ordered the appraisal…which came in at a little more that 20K over purchase price, which is GOOD!! BUT, I think they had to do it BEFORE all of the “owner’s selections” were installed…we wouldn’t want “customer upgrades” to enter into the appraisal…that would throw off EVERYTHING!! The next steps in construction are installation of cabinets (all upgraded), countertops (upgraded to granite) and all the tile (also all upgraded–Bathrooms, showers, floors, kitchen, backslashes) so, the construction was held while the appraisal was completed. BUT…we did get a (VERY) little bit of work done!
The EAST side of the house. You can see the extra concrete I had poured as an answer to “where do we want to put the garbage cans? I DO NOT like them inside the garage…I do not like to see them at all! This way, neither the neighbors nor the family must look at them!
The north east side of the house–(my studio, dining nook and Family room)
The north west side of the house (family room and master suite)
The WEST side of the house. The fence on this side of the house will be built after the pool is built…no reason to rush THAT job! After going over the list, they STILL have SO MUCH MORE to accomplish!! From insignificant things like installing the screens on the windows to major issues like building the retaining wall..are left. At this point, we are exactly HALF complete. We have SIXTY line items that need to be checked off. Hopefully, it will go quickly! Who has started the When Is Moving Day Pool? I’m betting it will be JULY 15th…they won’t tell us…until they are only 45 days out…the appraisal expires in 90 days…so, it’s gonna be sometime in that time frame. 45-90 days.
Also, a note to Kelly…thanks so much for letting me share the Chronicles of Casa Azul!!
