The Walk-Through

So I couple weeks ago I talked about how we decided to sell our house and buy a new one. It definitely seemed crazy but we are also very excited about this move. We have been talking a lot lately about the house and what we are looking forward and the move itself. But we haven't actually seen the house again since the day we made an offer on the house. So we were definitely excited about doing the walk-through and seeing the house again.

Since we are buying a brand new house we weren't doing an inspection you would normally do but we would be doing a walk-through on the house to make sure everything was perfect and there weren't things that that the builders needed to fix before we moved in. This was also going to be the first time we took the kids to the house. Connor was completely clueless about what was happening but Addison was definitely excited about seeing the house and picking her room.

So when the time came last week for our walk through we loaded the kids up and headed to the house. The yard finally had sod down and the numbers were up on the house. When we arrived a crew with cleaning supplies was leaving. We headed inside and I was almost giddy (although I didn't actually jump up and down and squeal - even if I thought it) because the house was even more beautiful (and bigger) than I remembered. Addie was instantly shy with the people there but she managed to squeak out to me that she liked it so far.

Turned out she really liked the house - actually they both did and easily got comfortable, going to running around the main level. And she was excited to explore the bedroom floor and pick out her bedroom which connected to Connor's room via a bathroom.

We meanwhile took the time to walk through each room, talking over things about the house and looking for things that needed to be fixed. There was a few things in each room but mostly just little chips or spots that needed to be touched-up. And we had to go over a few things like the sprinkler system which we had never had before.

All in all the walk-through took about an hour (which was good because right after we were meeting the landscaping company at the house to go over the landscaping - and hello I'm clueless there but got through it). By the end of it I was definitely even more excited about moving in and getting our family into the house. The kids loved the house and I will love having the living room and the kitchen on the same level, and even having a bathroom on that same level. It will be glorious!

But alas we have to wait still a few more weeks before we close and move but we are making progress here - slowly, I got sick this weekend and got nothing done and of course it is our last weekend at the house since our other weekends are busy. But I'll get it all done.

And the best part is that when we bought this house I almost regretted it immediately but I definitely don't feel that way about the new house. I am just ready to go and want to move in now!
