We’re also making sure to find time to enjoy the spring weather and sunsets in nearby Golden Gardens!

Another bi-weekly post. We haven’t been super-busy at the house since the drywallers have taken over and we’re just waiting for them to finish but we did have to move out of our rental and since Dibble isn’t move-in ready, we had to find another temporary place.. Continue reading

We passed cover inspections! It took long hours and several last-minute, late night fixes but we passed with minimal remarks! That meant Mike could get his framing inspection done which we passed as well and now we are eagerly looking forward to insulation and sheetrock next week. Continue reading
