Closing in 10 days...95% done!

I cannot believe we close in 10 days. The only things I have packed are our wedding gifts and my husband's video games and movie collection (my form of torture). Guess I better get my act together since I only have one more day off after today until settlement. I've been getting quotes for a deck and buying furniture with all of the great Memorial day sales. We also purchased a garage door opener, and a Kenmore washer, dryer, and french door refrigerator from Sears that weekend.

Here are some pictures from our last trip to the house:

Missing our decoration above the door. It was supposed to be a pineapple, but when we saw it in the garage we hated it, so I called our PM and he ordered something different. The new one will be installed Monday.

Our building

The space between buildings. 10 feet. The legal minimum.

Brixton Sand tile in the foyer. Also in the kitchen and powder room.

I'm liking the way the carpet complements the tile. This carpet is level C, but I don't remember the name. It is on both sets of stairs and the entire 3rd level (bedrooms).

Finished recreation room on ground level.

High-top bar in living room.

Multi-colored shag-like carpet in living room and recreation room.

Santa Cecilia granite

Love the deep sink!

Pantry. This is ginormous for us considering we are currently using a DVD holder as a pantry.

Kitchen with the granite and tile installed. The family checking out the dishwasher.

Gunstock divider between kitchen and living room.

Dining area

Where the 2 carpets meet at the stairs. They seem to complement each other which eases my anxiety!

Living room

Powder room with tile

Vinyl in guest bath (also in master) and hall carpet. We went with darker carpet because we plan on having children and hope this will minimize the risk of noticable stains.

Guest bathroom. Maple spice cabinets. There is also a linen closet in here but it's hidden behind the door so I literally forgot it was even there for a solid 6 weeks.

Almond tile surrounds in both showers. We think it makes it look less sterile and hospital-like.

2nd bedroom

3rd bedroom/office

Laundry - didn't know it came with the tray, but glad it does!

Master bedroom

Another view of the master bedroom

Double vanity in master bath

Dual shower

Walk-in closet in master

View from recreation room of the utility room doors and down to the foyer. This was taken before the carpet was installed.

Recessed lights in recreation room.

We are really loving how all of our selections are coming together. I'm meeting with our PM on Wednesday to point out some small things that need fixed that I'd like to address before our final walkthrough/pre-settlement demonstration on settlement day.

Hope everyone is doing well!



  1. 10 days?!? That's so exciting! Congrats! Everything looks great!

  2. Thanks! We can't believe this coming to an end already!
