We made the final payment yesterday.

We are T H R I L L E D !!
Just a few photos. Our rooms are not really set up and decorated completely yet.

Today furniture was delivered for Mom's room.

Her closet system was installed. This was her little luxury. Now to fill it up with her clothes- she has a LOT!

This is the ironing center which we will paint.

The experience was wonderful and the workmanship superb! We look forward to many fun times in our new spaces.

Bits and Pieces

This is Don, our contractor. We are down to the nitty gritty details at the end. You can see that he is a hands-on guy. Literally. He has been here almost every single day to inspect work and to get his hands dirty. He cleans up the site and pitches in wherever he sees something that needs to be fixed. The best part, he does it all with a smile- ALWAYS!

Waiting on the final inspections!

May 7- 2 months to the day- the footers for this project were poured.

It is hard to believe that this process is coming to a close. We are really excited but at the same time a bit sad. Everyone working on this project was so nice that we will miss having them here everyday- well at least a bit! The carpet was laid, HVAC in and the landscaper mulched and planted grass seed.

This experience has been better than we could have imagined and faster than we ever thought possible! It is also interesting to have conversations with the subcontractors. We have been told by several that Donny is THE BEST builder in the area. If they were to build a home he would be the builder. They also talked about how well he treats his subcontractors and how quickly they are paid. That always makes for happy workers and in turn a happy homeowner. We ARE VERY happy homeowners who feel blessed to have had Donny as our builder!

Mom has always told me that once you retire a big house is a blessing as you each have space to enjoy your own hobbies. Well, we are ready! This basement is going to see lots of creating and fun!

Once the final inspections are completed, the decorating fun begins!

We could even have a dance floor if we want. This space is tremendous!

Despite the incredible heat, the landscapers had smiles as they spread mulch on the new beds.
