We had our final inspection from the building department. He didn't pass us because he wanted more stuff done to the stairs and the ground wasn't level in front of the front steps.
Thursday Feb 28th
Scott got off work early and was able to get most of the cutting done for the stairs. So we added 2x8's on the back side of the kickplate and a 1x1 under the front of the tread. It took an hr and a half to fix up what we needed.
Friday Marcy 1st
In the pouring rain it was finally warm enough and softened our dirt pile enough that I could shovel some of it to dump it in front of the steps to level it out. Soggy and muddy I went down to the building dept and asked for our reinspection. He came by and complimented my mudslide and approved of the stairs. He signed the permit and said that I could go down and get my Certificate of Occupancy before 12 as the secretary was leaving early. So I went and picked it up! Scott was so sweet he sent me flowers :) I called Comcast to set up for our phone/tv/internet installation so they were going to come on Tues.
Saturday came and since we were official we moved alot more stuff in. We still weren't staying here since we had no tv, phone, internet; you know the necessities. Scott ran the lines for all the stuff we needed while I did some unpacking of food and stuff.
Sunday we did have Justin's bday party here and it was pretty fun. He turned 6 on Monday. We even hung some curtains that Scott's mom gave us. Makes it feel a little more homey.

Comcast got here about 9 and worked until almost 1 getting our stuff set up. Since we were transferring our account from our old house to the new one we were able to spend our first night in our FirstDay Cottage. Everyone slept pretty good.
It's pretty exciting to finally be in. Scott has our wireless connection set up but my computer isn't moved over yet so I'm using his laptop for now. I will try and get some pictures up soon. This weekend we have more stuff to move and hopefully our bed. We've been sleeping on an air mattress.
Hope this gets everyone up to date. Sorry for the delay.
