the husband + I are in the final stages of closing on our very first home! it is a new construction, that we fell in love with when it was “30 days from completion”. we get a new home to make our own + didn’t have to make a million from-the-ground-up decisions. if I had to pick everything from insulation to cabinet hardware, it’d be a few more years before we moved in. quite seriously. I’m already struggling with window treatments + paint colors ..
as of lately | home sweet diehl.
the keys to the house will (tentatively) be in our hands on april 8th.
the first items we’ll be carrying into the house: gallons of paint + subway tiles. the
verbal plan for our move in is to spend the first weekend as homeowners starting the process of turning our spec home into our dream home. at the top of the list: new paint for the main level, a subway tile back splash in the kitchen, and tackling the half-bath. I’ll be documenting the adventures + progress for entertainment and hopefully some value. we’re first timers. wish us luck!
have tips to share with new homeowners? any items you didn’t even think of?
