Home Sweet Home

We did it, we finally did it. My wife and I bought our first home, a 2 bed 1 bath upstairs condo. Our new place is cute in a nice family-friendly complex. Its also a bit dated and needs a little love, but regardless it will be a work in progress.

Last week was crazy, we got our keys on Tuesday, began renovating on Thursday and moved in on Sunday.

But dang, I'm beat from this weekend. In less than a week we coordinated the all the contractors (paint, flooring, plumbing & electrical), hired the movers, packed everything and moved in. The last few days have been all about long days and short nights.

I can't even count anymore how many times I bought and returned stuff at Home Depot. Really saved a lot buying all the supplies for the contractors, but it was crazy finding my way through the halls of HD.

Anyways when it was all done, we painted our master bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen, changed floors in kitchen and bathroom and updated our plumbing and electrical outlets. Phew.... the place is starting to look awesome.

Nevertheless, right now our home is disaster. We still have boxes everywhere and its kind of hard to decide where to start. I'm confident we'll get there. For now we just need to clear the living and dining room for when we get our furniture delivered tomorrow.

Ahhh, the work never ends.
