Never Say Never

It looks like we're going to close escrow next week! Everything finally got taken care of and we couldn't be more excited! Of course, I still never want to buy a house again! Ask me in five years, but I wouldn't mind doing this again in...say...30 years when the house is completely paid off. There is still much to be done on the house before we can move-in. Since we'll have the keys sometime next week, we're planning on going in and spending a good solid week getting it ready. Here's everything we still need to do before move-in:

  1. Paint living room, kitchen, and hallway (we already picked out the paint and bought it)
  2. Polish hardwood floors in the living room and dining room
  3. Rip out ugly wood loft/contraption in one of the kid's bedrooms
  4. Finish hardwood flooring in the office
  5. Finish hardwood floor edging in master bedroom, hallway, and bathroom
  6. Rip out carpet in guest bedroom and closet to replace with new carpet
  7. Clean, sweep, wash windows, etc.
  8. Change locks (it was a foreclosure and you can never be too careful)

Once everything is done, we'll be ready to move-in. This summer, in between weddings, graduation parties, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, and European vacations, we're hoping to tile the second bathroom and laundry room (which has linoleum right now). At some point we'll also need to work on the landscaping in the front and back. Sometime before we have children, we'll also need to add some grass in the backyard - so that they have some place to play, other than rose bushes and concrete.

Now that I feel like it's pretty much a done-deal, here are some photos:
