The new house is moving on nicely!
We met with the builder last week for a pre drywall meeting to ensure that the electrical and low-volt (CAT5) wiring is where we spec’d it out. The builder missed the data port in my study and had to come back. It’s all good now.
The insulation was just installed yesterday so that means that the drywall is next.
Once the drywall is in, the structural portion is basically complete and the rest is cosmetic. The cabinets, quartz countertops, euro shower enclosure as well as the hardwood flooring and other options will fall in line.
The builder is going to provide us with a timeline that we can use to schedule our move. We are hoping to move in the new house sometime in late July/early August.
We thought that we would check out the hood yesterday and took a look at some 600K homes down the street. DAMN. The houses were nice and big. There was only one model to look at. The square footage was 3,207 feet. Two staircases leading to the upstairs and a basement that you could live in. The price was misleading. The base price was $550K but the average lot premium was $200K. Did I mention that the lots were huge?
The house was a little too big for just us. If we ever won the lottery, we would think about that community again. Of course we would need to hire a maid service, landscaper and a pool guy as Michelle would be a little too busy at the furniture store.
Just checked out lottery numbers. We got three out of six on the state lottery. Wow, a whole $3. Not enough to retire on.
