If you’ve been following the blog, you noticed there’s been a big gap since our last post.
Spoiler: yes, we DID move in!!
So why the delay? Well, there was a snafu with the post-construction cleaning, so we didn’t get a good chance to take pictures as planned of the place right before our stuff arrived.
The lack of a professional cleaning also meant that we ended up spending about a week after moving in fighting sawdust and making the two rooms where we and our kiddo sleep hygienic and livable. We then spent another 3 weeks opening boxes to find stuff and then moving boxes from the basement to the 2nd floor and vice versa. There was also some post move-in work (e.g. mis-sized custom appliance panels, electrical adjustments, etc.) that we had to schedule over the next 6 weeks – but which are all complete now!
So we’re mildly settled in, but no room is fully designed or decorate-complete, so it’s hard to share photos since it doesn’t feel totally “done” – but it might be a while until everything is done given the time constraints of having a 2 year-old and full time jobs.
So in the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of the first floor – we’ll do more detailed posts of each room (specifically the kitchen and 1st floor bathroom) as the final boxes get put away and decor is completed. 🙂
