I have been working on a photobook of our Building a House Journey, and I thought it was about time I updated you all.
First, the photos of what our construction crew has been up to.
We learned some important features that our builder uses. They use "water wise landscaping" which means they use California native plants. Plus they use irrigation systems with programmable "smart timers" that deliver water in gallons per hour instead of gallons per minute and even turn off automatically if it rains. Did you hear that?!? Thank goodness. Because I am always the jerk whose sprinklers are going off while it's raining. Yikes! They also have a pump system for hot water that has remote switches in every bathroom and kitchen, so that you don't have to turn on your bath for 10 minutes and waste all that water while it's heating up. Amazing!!
The moment we were most excited about was when we got our 100% completion date!! The house should be completed on April 29th and then we'll be able to close escrow a few days after that!
In the meantime, we spent about two hours looking at fans at all sorts of places. We've picked out all five bedroom's fans, but we're stuck on the living room. We know what we want in our head, but can't find it anywhere. What we really want is to pick up the one from the living room of our old house. You don't think they'll care, right? Ha!
