We closed on our new home a week ago! Since then Tony has been busy completing all the needed repairs so we can start moving: plumbing, appliances, wood stove. So far everything has come in under budget, lots under budget -- praise God!
This is great because there are always extra "unplanned for" expenses -- extra gas for the many trips made from our current house to the new house, extra trips to town for supplies, etc. Propane for the furnace, wood for the wood stove, bins for storage/organization...
We are planning to move next week. Since we are only moving about 10 miles, we can do it in multiple trips. Don't know yet when we'll move the bedrooms and kitchen, but soon!
Here is a picture of our new wood stove with its first fire:
