Move in

I've started and restarted this post four times. The house (or lack thereof) has been weighing on me heavily and I have not been in the best of moods. I am seriously lacking the confidence that the house will ever be finished. Tiler #4 has failed to show up for a week straight. There's only about a day's worth of work left. The HVAC guy won't return my builder's phone calls. Each day brings a new problem, issue, disappointment. I know this will all pass and hopefully one day we'll look back on this and laugh, but right now, it is all consuming and extremely anxiety inducing.

Even though nothing is finished, all is about 90% there, we are planning moving in our belongings Wednesday. I do not know when we will be able to follow. If a small miracle happens, and we actually can get gas and electricity connected, we may be able to follow suite. But nothing, I repeat nothing will be finished.

But here are some pictures......

Oh dear. How do I break this to you gently? It will never be finished. (This from a man who bought some grout today to repair the tiling in the kitchen).

It IS looking good though.

Now, about the garden...

It looks lovely, even in its unfinished state. Keeping my fingers crossed that everything gets hooked up and running/flowing/blowing shortly.

I should rephrase- done enough for us to live in it! I understand completely about not ever being done as we own more than our fair share of houses. The irony was that we owned so many houses and yet were homeless.

Oh yeah! And don't forget that after you've lived there for only a couple of months - things will start falling apart! :)
