Interior shots

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

These are some pictures we took of the interior before we moved in. I think it was the day before, actually – and it didn’t look this clean and serene again for… well it still doesn’t.

When my sister and brother-in-law (Alex) were visiting I asked Alex, who has a professional grade digital camera, to take some photos of the house. It turns out that we’re not nearly ready and so this is what he ended up taking. (Yes, he is doing what you think he’s doing)

Oh, and not to be outdone, here’s a really cute Joey walking down the Hallway:

Oh please please please please

…let us get our certificate of occupancy. We are scheduled to move in this Saturday (!!!) and we still need to have the final inspection by the City inspector and process the final bank draw request and get the bank inspector to sign off too. How did we come to cut it so tight? Why didn’t we give ourselves some wiggle room?

Well, have you ever noticed that whatever time you are given to complete a task you do it in that time? It’s like some kind of law or something.

Oh, we went to our first Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association meeting last night. They have their s*** together, boy. They are ORGANIZED! They have sector reps (we are in the yellow sector), website, steering committees, many other committees, officers, etc. Last night the City of Austin Clean Water Program department was the main attraction, and when I say the department I mean like all of them came. It was all about the sewer line replacement program and it was pertinent to us because one of their major line replacements skirts right along our new house. If they time it right it could be happening exactly when we have my family in town for Christmas. Yay!

Here are some pictures:

The wood panels next to the door and the railing are temporary and the concrete planters and path up to the house are still to come. Oh, and the carport too – which is one of the main reasons we went to the BCNA meeting. We need to get a variance to put up the carport.

Entry – paper still covers the concrete floor at the Entry.

Hallway w/ LIGHTS!!!

And last, the chrome doorknobs by Baldwin Brass. They are just adorable – I want to wear them as earrings. :D
