We bought our first "home" items - lights for the kitchen and exhaust fans for the bathrooms. We chose two overhead lights for the kitchen, each with three light bulbs, and one small light for over the sink. With only one small window in the kitchen, I wanted to make sure that we would have plenty of light!
My project this week has been to look for siding for the house. Our contractor gave us a start date of July 19th for the outside work, so I've been looking for wholesale places in the Pittsburgh area. Again, if you know of a place, drop me a line! Daniel and I are going on vacation July 14-21, so we need to have siding ready to go for the contractor before we leave. I'm hoping to find a dark grey siding, similar to the stuff in this photo, perhaps even darker.
I think that the best news is that our jobs are done! We can run a few more wires, but at this point, it's up to the various contractors to put everything back together. How awesome is that?
Oh, and just as an FYI and because a number of people have asked about this, we are hoping to move in by October, if not before. Our apartment lease will be up for renewal at the end of October, and we don't plan to sign on for another year :) This way we also give the contractors some time to work around any issues that may arise, or delays that inevitably come.
