Hot Time in Pokeberry

We'll be about 90 today in Charlotte. I'm heading out to our new place quite soon to get some planting and garden tending done before noon. Then its home to tend to this house and dinner and get the young adults out to the house to do the various things they are doing to complete it so we can move.

We now have a kitchen sink and two functioning bathrooms--one still needs a sink installed. Doors are up on most of the rooms and except for some last minute re-arranging all the dry wall is up and taped and mudded.

We're going to talk to the permit inspectors about doing a walk through again and giving us some idea what MUST be done to get an occupancy permit. We are thinking we will edit our plan a bit and not put in a master bathroom right now--instead use that large space for an office for Hubby's computer stuff.

The way the economy is, and with the rules for tuition for students who are new residents of a state--as our kids will be when we move-- we think our kids may not be moving out for a while. There are just about NO jobs to be had, right now we even have an extra out of work young man in the house as he basically has no place to go. Not sure if he'll be staying with us or not--Hubby is thinking about it.

We think-- we could probably use more space for folks to sleep and thus the downstairs office will be used for sleeping--and probably the master bath could then be office--and we'll be fine with just two bathrooms.

Also-- it will cost much less right now in time and in money.

Anyhow-- so much left to do--but maybe most of it is not 'essential' to the cause of moving in?

We shall see.

  1. I know what you mean about the kids. My oldest is out on her own right now, but is only working part-time. She may end up having to move back home.

    Was that you that left a comment on Jackie Clay's blog about painting the shed/guest cottage? lol

  2. Hi Darlene. Yes that was me. Jackie has outbuildings that are made of osb too, so I figured she would have some idea. Hubby wanted to tear it down when we bought the place--which he did do with the old chicken coop, his mother prevailed on him to let her have it for a 'guest room'. We all were sort of surprised she'd want to sleep in it--but she does. In fact she's all excited about making it cute.
