Things are moving along nicely on the house now. The heating and air conditioning have all been reinstalled. Most of the interior painting has been done, the master shower and jacuzzi are back in and the tile is down in the bathrooms and laundry room. The interior doors have been painted and hung, the gorgeous new front door has been installed.
Still to come are electrical (all the outlets and switches have to be replaced), kitchen cabinets and granite, vanities and backsplash tiling, carpeting, hardwood floors, ceiling fans, light fixtures, door hardware, and all of the minutiae involved in moving back in
We think we've seen the last of the "Smurfs"...at least we hope so! They're the bio-suited folks who had the odious task of doing the mold remediation in the crawl space. This was one of the most important processes to us, because without a guarantee that the house is mold-free, our house value would be severely impacted.
We didn't make it back in time for Christmas, but now we're hopeful that we'll be back in by the end of January.
I think February will be the perfect time for a housewarming party.
