House Checklist - its happening!

Things have been a little crazy in our new place (well kind of our old place but our new permanent place). We will be (fingers crossed) looking at our little home about 8 feet up in the air by the end of next week! We're getting the house raised to add a floor, I just can't wait to have a bedroom!! Right now we are sleeping in our loft! We received the bright blue portapotty today and its sitting in our yard, lol I guess this is the first step! There are so many things on our checklist for the house:

Apply for permit, pick up permit, pay for permit - check
sign contract for mortgage - check
sign contract for builder and book builder - check
sign contract for plumber, book plumber - check
sign contract for well fix to go inside the house so that we have water in the winter! - check
get portapotty for the month for builders - check
buy cooler for food while we have no electric
I had thought that our inlaws would be able to watch the puppies, thats not happening, so I think I'm going to have to take the puppies to my dads during the day while they do the work. Lealu isn't good with loud noises, so we'll see how that goes!

Still has to happen - take all pictures off walls, clean our fridge because we will be out of electric, and I think thats it for now!

Here's our porta potty:) Its kinda like the blue box in Dr. Who right!? I wish! :)

Hope you're having a great week!


  1. Eeeew I hate those port-apotties! But I guess if you guys are the only ones using it...I didn't know you could raise a house! hahaha. Can't wait to see the progress and finished project.

  2. I know Lourie, its kinda yucky! its actually just for the construction people, and I we're getting temp plumbing inside for us. Wedidn't want the dirty construction boots walking inside all over the place! :) the guy put a bubble gum smelly thing in there, kinda gross. who wants to smell bubble gum mixed with ... other stuff??? yuck!
