Open House and Occupanc…

21 Oct

I’ll save the “y” for when we see Doug’s signature on our Inspection Sheet, but we got temporary occupancy today! We had our final inspection and he was able to sign-off on everything except the duct test because we didn’t have the paperwork on-site. As soon as he can see them, we’ll be completely official! Yahoo!

We had our Energy Star tests earlier in the week and passed with flying colors. The state looks for a rating of 200 at a minimum to pass. We were a 90!

It will still be another week until Adair is fully done, but by next weekend we’ll be back in our old location, in a beautiful new home!

But first…

This Saturday Adair is holding an Open House at our abode. If you’ve been following along and want to see it in real life, this is your chance! If you’ve been driving by and peaking down the driveway, this is your chance to snoop! If you’ve been stopping by and poking around when we weren’t home and are frustrated now that there are locks on the doors, this is your chance to come on in and see the progress!

Jackie will be on-hand to talk about Adair and Sara will be there to talk about our experience and lead tours. I’ll be there too, but not until after 2pm or so. Details:

You’re Invited: OPEN HOUSE!

Saturday, October 22, 2011

10:00am – 4:00pm

4837 Blakely Avenue, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110

Light snacks served.

Next week we’ll have any necessary subs back up to tweak things, our fridge will be delivered and we’ll have our walk-through with Chad where we learn more about the products that were installed and learn about what happens now that we’ll be on our own.

The finished mantle. Just needs some paint and some propane so we can light that beauty up! I wish I could say it was going to be painted by the open house, but I can’t…

The kitchen again! We love the floors and cabinets and… ALL OF IT!

    It’s so beautiful, Sarah! I’ll be out of town, too bad I’ll miss the open house. I am definitely one of those who has been peeking! Congratulations. Karen

    I love your blog and your homesite is beautiful (your old house was really cute, too!) We’ve been looking at building the 2830 for awhile now and are wondering what upgrades you went with on the Traditions? (I couldn’t find it in any post.) Also, how did you convince Adair to add the cute front porch area and the belly board on the sides of the house? How much did they charge you for that? (That’s the one thing I don’t like about the Traditions line – the plain side walls.) This will be our second Adair home and the price is right, but they dig their heels in at the smallest changes. What was your experience?

      Thanks for the feedback! It has inspired us to go back and finish this blog. We moved in almost 10 months ago! We’ll happily comment on our changes too (but first we have to remember what they were…).
