Time to Redefine our Lives in Oregon

A Great, Great Week!!

What would it be worth to you to have your house cleaned after the dust and debris of construction….would it be worth having an Open House by your builder??  We weren’t completely sure, but the idea of not having to wipe down cabinets, trim, and other surfaces….having the house vacumed, and just plain making it look all clean and tidy was quite tempting.  We felt that along with the temptaion of having the house cleaning, Charlie, our Adair “Front Man” was so helpful, and Kyle, our Foreman was always there to field our questions and concerns. They really worked hard for us…having an Open House was a way that we could say, “Thank you!”  THANKS you guys!!!

So if you are wondering…..OUR HOME IS FINISHED!!!! (Well, there are a couple of small items to be finished, but…) Here is the real news…..WE HAVE THE PERMIT OF OCCUPANCY from the county…..WE CAN MOVE IN!!!!!

We have a lot of work to do around our home. To get the permit signed from the county, we had to have a landing for doorways. Our temporary fix was to build up the landing with gravel, but that will be replaced with a paver porch and stair.  We still need to construct our patio, the power company needs to come out and disconnect a power source that goes across the front of our home, stuff like that. We are starting to move our things in, still waiting for our refrigerator, and we can’t wait to be fully in.  I can’t tell you the joy we have when we walk into our new home.  It has been 6 years of saving, and planning…and 20 years before that of hoping and praying that someday we’d be able to do this…in the Lord’s timing, we’re here and our home is completed.  Can you feel us smiling!!! 🙂

So here it is, the last 6 months in a quick shot…our house…our Father’s house……THANK YOU for your prayers and well wishes along the way!!  I’m sure there will be more to this adventure, this is just the beginning……
