The Final Stages
Mood:  celebratory
Ok, we are within the final two weeks of construction - FINALLY. I scheduled our final appraisal for Monday the 29th of January. Remaining to be done, we have to finish taping the entryway and garage, then do all the mudding. The garage and laundry room only need one coat of the mud because I'm not painting those, but the entryway needs probably at least 3 coats. Then I have to paint that - probably a coat or two... I also need to start painting the boards for the exterior window and door trim so we can get all that put up. The rest of the interior trim has to go up: the master bedroom ceiling, door, and closet; bathroom floor pieces, a couple of fixes on ceiling pieces, and the closet; a fix on the hallway ceiling piece that's all funky; finish ceiling trim around the kitchen and pantry; floor trim around all the doors that aren't trimmed yet (i.e. closets and the main entry door); and all through the entryway... gotta install the main entry door... then there are still a few sheet rock patches to be done, such as the hole in the kitchen ceiling where we were going to put a light, and some screws that didn't get covered by door trim. Then all the patches have to be painted. We have to put up the under-cabinet lights, which will be quick, and patch a couple of various silicone spots in the bathroom, and put up some shelves in the bathroom closet, part of the master bedroom closet, and the pantry, and install all the closet doors in the bedrooms. Then we just have to get everything all cleaned up and ready for the appraiser, and we're DONE. Not too long a list, right? :) Wish us luck!
