Last pictures before move-in!

We wanted to take some last pictures of the house in its pristine state, before we clutter it up.  (Although seeing it this way has inspired me to get rid of a lot of stuff and try to keep it as simple and spare as possible.)

The downstairs is now completely finished (except for the odd trim pieces here and there).  The upstairs is lacking walls...but the floor is finished so we can move furniture in and sleep up there while we save up to finish the walls.

The next big project will be putting the shakes on the outside...luckily those are already bought and paid for.

At the end of the day on May 1st we will be officially moved in!  Stop by and see us when you have a chance.  The glow of the room by propane lights is a sight to behold.  ;-)

Moving date set!

Finally we have an answer to the question everyone's been asking...the movers are showing up to the apartment on April 30th, and delivering our stuff to the new house the next day on May 1st!  4 weeks to go, and the downstairs is nearly finished.  We'll finish the upstairs after we move in.  We were hoping to get it done beforehand, but we can't stand paying rent any longer!

New pictures have been posted...see the April 2012 page at left.  It's really looking nice now that we've started getting some paint on the walls!
