As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, we were hoping to see doors installed when we drove by our new home after work. And doors we have – all but the garage door. It’s exciting to see progress being made. We also noticed the spindles on the staircase have been installed, the backyard brick fence is almost finished, interior doors and white baseboards are in place. Oh, yes, the roof is also done. It’s starting to look like a real house!

Front door to be painted to match roof tiles – front bedrooms shutters installed to be painted – driveway and walkway done.

I can’t wait to be home again. Much easier to cope with life when you’re home. I also can’t wait to live in a “real” house again on a real street with a real 2-car garage with a garbage disposal, working cooktop, etc., etc. It’s been quite a challenge living in this rental. And, to top it all off, it’s situated in a courtyard and often delivery people can’t find the front door. And the neighbor lets his dog out unsupervised and he always seems to “go” in front of our house.

Three-story courtyard house with 3 houses on the left side and two houses on the right side and one behind. Ground floor is a bedroom suite and laundry room with entry to garage. The second floor is the living room, kitchen, and half bath – living room extends to the right over the garage, next to deck and separate casita (not in photo). The third floor is the master suite only.
