Saturday, August 8, 2015



At the beginning of this week we got some news about the completion date of our new home.

Apparently they had some problems with a couple of the trades, and they are also short handed for the amount of building that is going on, so we have a two week delay.

It has been moved  to October 13th which just happens to be my birthday.

This whole process has been so fun to watch, and experience. Of course I want to move in, but I don’t want to miss any of the stages that are about to take place.

I'll be interested to see how you handle window treatments in your great room. The window next to your fireplace could be a problem if you wanted to hang panels.
