Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! This year Santa brought us a list of what is left to do on the house. This is a major milestone because until now it's always been "what is next" or "what has been done recently". It may be slightly incomplete, but here it is, in no particular order:

  1. Finish putting-in the banisters
  2. Put in the cabinets
  3. Put in the countertops
  4. Put in the appliances
  5. Finish the electrical
  6. Finish putting-in lights, inside and out
  7. Put in the baseboards
  8. Paint the baseboards
  9. Finish putting-in linoleum in the basement
  10. Put in carpeting in basement
  11. Finish basement window sills
  12. Finish putting on siding over the front porch
  13. The Dreaded Driveway
The driveway isn't happening until after winter and the soggy spring are over, but the rest will have to be done before we can move in. My mom doesn't want it to get signed-off as "inhabitable" until it's totally finished because she thinks that will mean whatever might get left undone would then take even longer because the project would lose all priority.

Happy New Year! We probably won't be moving in until the first weekend in January - or maybe even shortly after that - but the end is in sight!
