First Weekend

Our closing was scheduled for December 18th, but as it turned out we didn’t close until the 23rd. The mortgage company was a bit ridiculous to work with, but from talking to other people this is not unusual.

We started staying at the house the day we closed. We brought down air mattresses and sleeping bags, a lots of cleaning supplies and started getting to work.

We started taking down the bookcases in the living room today. This will make way for us to increase the size of the opening in between the kitchen and living room. #1 this will make it have a more open feel. But we also need to get some more furniture in here that won’t fit through the small doorway.
