The house received it’s Final Cleaning today at the hand of our builder. Oh, how I wish that meant I never have to clean it after I move in. Tomorrow, final building inspection. Tenterhooks! Then the Town of Vienna just has to look at the numerous copies of paperwork we’ve all sent them, cash yet another of my big fat checks, and give the all-clear for us to move (our furniture) in.
What does that mean for you? It means you can come see mah house if you’re in the DC area–or just really a die hard fan from like, Australia. I see you Aussies on my view tracker, and it makes me very happy.
Seriously, if you’re interested in checking out the house, send me an email so I can give you the details.
1. No, you don’t have to be in the market for a new house.
2. No, you don’t have to be best buds with me.
3. No, you won’t be the first or only complete stranger from blog land that sent me an email asking for the details of the open house. If you see me there, please say hi!
I tried very hard today to get a schmancy mailbox assembly onto the old mailbox post. First I ripped off the rusty, doorless mailbox that was hanging on there and pounded in some nails along the side of the post. Then with a borrowed handsaw, I cut off the post to the right height. And then! Well, then I tried really hard to get the sheath over the post, but the post was so old and swollen from water exposure that it is no longer a true 4×4 and was too darned fat. BOOOOOO! I was really trying to avoid figuring out how to remove and replace a mailbox post. It just seems like anything you did to get the first bugger out would just make the next one unstable. Well I tried to impress you open house-going people with my mailbox, truly I did.
And since my builder made free to use pictures from my blog in their promotional materials, I’m returning the favor. (I don’t mind at all, just to be clear.)
Try to picture this with a cone of crystals all over those pendant chandeliers, polished nickel cabinet pulls, a french door refrigerator (this one is photoshopped in) and…some kind of polished stone backsplash that I haven’t settle on yet. I love my kitchen transom windows!
Yes, that sleek black thinger in the island is an induction cooktop from THE FUTURE!
