Well, we finally moved in the week-end after we closed and it's been three weeks already, how time flies!!
The move wasn't too bad as we had hired help. It took us 2 whole days to get everything to their right places and by the following Tuesday we were fully settled in.
We've done a little bit of decoration but contrary to my wish we haven't painted, except for the kid's bedrooms. I know I wanted to paint so bad but it just didn't work out. We hired a painter from Craig's list who claimed he had painted for 41 years . This guy boasted so much of his experience that it was hard not to hire him. First day he painted the kids rooms and was supposed to come back the following morning to paint the living, dining and family rooms. He asked to be paid at the end of each day which we did at the end of day 1.Since I got to the house from work early in the evening when it was already getting dark, it was hard to evaluate the work. The next morning when I came back to look at the work(this was before we moved in ) it was a mess! He was supposed to come in at 8am that morning to complete the work and there we were waiting to tell him he was fired but it looks like he knew he was going to be fired so he didn't show up nor call. As I write we haven't heard from him again. I tell you some people are dubious. All the paint he made us buy is now in our storage. In a way it worked out well as I was able to hold off painting until the 10 month inspection, who would have thought?
Decorating has been fun though stressful in a way. I've been in and out of all the stores in town, buyng and returning stuff. For now, we are done. It might not be the ultimate decor but eventually we'll get there.
Here are some pictures as promised.
