Appointment with a House

We've been setting up appointments left and right for a house we don't even own yet. We close on the house a week from tomorrow. The bank who owns the house currently announced last week that the roofer could not install the new roof that's required for our loan approval until after we offically own the house. So there are roofing materials sitting on top of our house now that will be installed on the 21st.

We've had to go out to the house so that Carpet Mill could measure for the new carpet and tile we are having installed. We happened to catch a really good deal on the flooring materials. Both the carpet and tile including installation will be about $2 per sqare foot. We called a painter to give us an estimate on painting the exterior of the house. He said he'd drive by it and call us with an estimate, but he never called back. So we're still in need of a painter.

We have to carefully schedule everything. We have to paint the interior and let the radon guy install the mitigation system before the carpet and tile can be installed. We also have to get the new garage door installed before the exterior paint can be done so that the door will be painted at the same time. If we have enough money to change out the bathroom mirrors and light fixtures, and the light fixtures in other parts of the house, it would be best if we could do that before painting those areas, so that we don't have to go back and re-touch those areas later. We also have to have an electrician possibly run power for a new central air conditioning system, and I don't know how that will effect things.

Today we bought a refrigerator and stove. They'll deliver those on the 26th. I can't believe we're only a week away from home ownership!

I told them to stand by the house, but they posed themselves. Thanks for being quick about the adoption papers. Pray that the FBI check will come back quickly!
