House Update - September

I know, I know…there has been a serious lack of posting for the past month.  What can I say?  Us Craders are busy people!  Besides building a house, we had an unexpected vacation in Virginia, C had his 10 Year High School Reunion, and I was helping plan a wine tasting event in our downtown area.

Lots have things have been going on around the new house.  Cabinets have started showing up, the tile is almost done, doors are installed, etc.  Even though it should all be complete in two or three weeks, it still seems like moving day is so far, far away!

But here’s some progress photos for your viewing pleasure:

So what do you think so far?!


  1. Val! I didn't know you had a blog! I love it. You should do a guest post on mine sometime.

    The house is looking really good!! Can't wait to see it in person.

    P.s. I heard from several people that the wine tasting was really nice, and hope it's an annual thing!

  2. Everything looks good! Sounds like you guys have been busy since Virginia!

    As a former user of a yellow bathroom I say keep it around for a while and see how you like it. I sure liked mine!

  3. Thank you so much Sarah! I'm going to need some decorating help from you after we get moved in. I'm not crafty like you are!

    Hed - I really like the yellow, but Cal thinks there's too much of the yellow in the basement and that we should break it up a little.
