Well, I meant to keep up with this at the very least through closing!
It was a bit early to say anything, but early in May we found out that, in January 2015, we’ll hopefully be welcoming a baby into the home! This meant that I felt horribly ill, and had little to no energy to stalk the house or write posts… (or take care of the apartment we were in, or pack, or cook…)
But- everything went along as scheduled. The final walk-through was great, but I was in a bit of a daze so don’t remember much about it.
My biggest issue was with NVR. I was constantly trying to contact them for final approval and numbers. I didn’t have a final closing figure until almost 3pm THE DAY BEFORE CLOSING- which meant I had 2 hours to get to the bank for a certified check, since we were closing first thing in the morning. I was frustrated.
We got our stuff together, and closed on time. So much signing, but less stressful than expected.
A week later, we moved in! We still have a few rooms without furniture… also several that are halfway painted as I try to figure out what looks best (and get tired/lightheaded trying to paint). I’m also finally gaining energy (over halfway through the pregnancy), and have gotten back to unpacking. It’s quite a process for us… but we’re getting there. Hopefully I’ll backtrack and add more photos as we get settled!
