We have an estimated date of completion!!!!!!!!!!
Our house, which has been under construction forever, has an estimated completion date!
Of course, the mortgage company says that I should add a few weeks to that date. Same from the real estate agent. But still, we are closer to the end!
Here's a photo from today:
I think my favorite thing is going to be the view. I better like it, I'll be driving around to the other side of the lake every day I work. See, way over in the distance, that city, that's Orem, where I work fulltime. Not that I live much closer right now! Of course, if they ever build a bridge my drive will go from 45 minutes to 1o. Not that it will happen in my lifetime ;)
I met also got to meet with my landscaper today. Saratoga Springs requires all front yards be fully landscaped prior to closing. They even have a minimum requirement on how many trees and shrubs. That's okay, it's needed. There is so much construction (I heard Utah County is in the top 10 nationally at 25.9% growth) so this will cut down on the dust a LOT.
I do want to have some control over my sprinkler system set-up and where those trees and bushes go though.
The landscaper said that I could draw out a plan and he would work with me on it - so, guess where my mind will be over the next few weeks! I LOVE setting up landscape ideas. It's the weeding afterward and and upkeep that kills my enthusiasm. But, if I do it right this time, maybe I can eliminate a lot of headache by planting smart :)
p.s. See that bay window there on the top floor? That's my future craft room!!!
