4 years, 1 month.
This past weekend, in between going to Marvel Universe Live, seeing Santa with Sophie, and going to Jacob’s birthday party, we also penciled in some to visit our new house that we are building.
We started off with lunch at Whole Foods, of course.
You and Mommy had some good times playing around in the back as I enjoyed driving what I have referred to as the “Super Mario cloud,” the Lexus RX 450h, around Nashville.
We arrived to see some subtle changes that helped make our new home seem even more like a real house and not simply a construction project.
There is now a mailbox in front of our house! As long as we’ve lived in our townhouse, nearly 7 years, we’ve never had an actual mailbox.
But now we will. You can help Mommy and me check the mail. That’ll be fun!
I also noticed that they were actually finishing up the curb there as well. It wasn’t until we pulled away in the Lexus RX 450h that I realized the workers were actually waiting on us to leave so we’d be out of the way to finish the job.
As we stepped into the driveway, we were able to see our new wooden shutters, which I assume may be stained darker by the time the house is finished. I love them!
We saw in the garage that our ceiling fans have arrived and will likely be installed in the next couple of weeks.
Inside our house, we noticed the interior doors are now all installed.
And… the walls are now painted! They are the shade of crème that we chose, contrasted against the white base boards. Eventually, we will probably paint some of the downstairs that willow green color that we used in our townhome.
We drove back over to the model home and checked in with the in-house agent. You insisted on showing her your new sword from Marvel Universe Live. She was very impressed.
Then you had to check in on the snowman doll, as well as your “pizza parlor” that you hid under the Christmas tree last time we were there.
Linda, the agent, told us that she’s had many visitors curiously ask about that piece of foam under the tree so she has explained that you were behind it being there.
She also told us that one of the next major changes on our house will be that the hardwood floors and carpet will be put in.
Our closing date is January 29, just about a month and a half from now. It won’t be long until we’re in our new house… as long as everything goes according to schedule.
We finished off our visit by driving by preschools in the area. I wonder where you’ll go…
Catch up on the entire series of the Lexus RX 450h Weekend. A lot of exiciting things happened!
