We Have Power... Sort of...

Well, you can all uncross your fingers and toes now! The power company pulled through and they were able to get the power turned on yesterday! We went by yesterday afternoon and they had not actually turned the power on to our house yet though. They should be doing that today! Hooray! Now I can stop stressing about power :) And stop annoying our PM for updates. 

They also did A LOT yesterday - our stone has been put in on the front of the house, the fireplace has stone now, they installed our carpet upstairs and started to do so downstairs, we have real garage steps and railings for the porch, and the whole house was full of blue tape to note areas that need to be fixed. 

I had to snap a picture of our meter at 0! It will never say that again :)

It was hard to get a good picture of the stone because they were still working, so I'll have one for you later. It looks fantastic in person! We are very happy with that selection. 

The upstairs carpet was a little darker than I remembered, but I do think it will look good once we get everything in.  It also wasn't as "plush" as I thought it would be since we upgraded the padding. I am checking on the padding they used to make sure it's what we selected. 

We also got a little more sod in the back, but that is definitely all we are getting. We will have to add more once we close to fill the back yard. 

You can see the darker green sod towards the back. This is looking from the edge of the house. 

This is from the back corner of the lot. So a decent amount of area to fill in. 

Well, that's it for now! They are putting in our hardwoods today and I can't wait to see them! We should also get to see the electricity in action!!! Woohoo!!!



  1. Yay! You are so close! The stone looks so great. Love it!

  2. I am sooooo happy for power!!! I have official uncrossed my fingers! Your home is look great and I am happy you love the stone. That was a great capture your meter at 'zero'! :-)

  3. Yay for sort-of-electricity!! :-) Everything looks fabulous. I have yard envy.... :-)
