My New House

Well sorry for missing last week. And I am going to warn this weeks post is also going to be extremely short. The reason for that is that I am now officially a homeowner. I am been non stop busy trying to get the house ready. The house is structurally sound the problems are all cosmetic. The biggest problem so far are paint colors. Most of the interior of the house was painted a very ugly sun burnt orange. So the wife and I have been painting non stop since we got the keys. We spend all day there on the weekend and we go up there every night after work and paint until about 10:30pm. There is not a single wall in the house that we could leave as is. Every thing was wrong. I think one of the main reasons we got the price we did is because of the decor. Houses with similar layouts on the same street have a list price of about 17k more than ours. We also had a new front load washer and dryer delivered on Saturday. And we went to pick out our new granite counter tops as well. We hope to have those in around 3 to 4 weeks. Our new hardwood floors are being delivered Wednesday and installed on Friday. So between then and now we have to finish painting upstairs and remove all the carpet. We only have to put one more coat of paint on one room upstairs and we will be done. Except for a little touch up work.

I hope that the next time I post i will be able to post some pictures.
