As in, relief. So, I took the day off, and it was quite productive. I really needed the day to get organized, and go at my own pace! No photos today, too busy! I took at least three full explorer-loads over, and unpacked a lot of the boxes as I went. Installed my one roman shade to test it out... the verdict is still out. We realized tonight that you can see straight through them! Kind of defeats the purpose of 'privacy'. Hmmm. May use them on some of the side windows, and get more solid ones for the front of the house. We shall see.
My dad came to visit this morning, and then Charles & Veronica stopped by on their way out of town (having stayed on Kiawah last night), so we all went to lunch, Brian too. Five Loaves & Sugar Bakeshop, yum! It was nice seeing everyone, but I quickly got back to work. The bathroom & kitchen are pretty much done. And I moved most of what I could carry by myself. We just need furniture! Looking forward to all of our help this weekend! Can't wait to see Mom, Gene, Allison, Brad, & Ellie!
Forgot to mention in the midst of all of that, I met the mechanical crew, the mechanical inspector from the City, and the plumbing crew. I won't go into all the details, but we were having trouble passing our mechanical inspection, but the good news is that they fixed what was necessary to pass, just need to get the inspector back out. Also, we have HOT water! Woohoo! This of course means that the gas problem is fixed.
