Happy Two Months, Little House

It's been two months since we've signed our closing documents.

What a strange, wonderful trip it has been.

Our team has ripped out the walls, tore up the yard, installed new pipes and plumbing and electrical.. We sealed the cinder blocks, framed the sides of the house, removed the chimney, fixed the power line, patched the roof, and insulated the whole thing within 2 inches of its life. And I've planted strawberries, rhubarb, 7 different types of herbs, mimulus plants, and a 64 square foot garden.

And it's safe to say that this is the happiest I've been in a really, really long time.

Here's to our sweet little crusty house, which is starting to look less crusty as time goes on, and more like a home. Our home.

Happy two months, Casa Crustante.


  1. Very cool. How much longer til you're in? Looking good. Very cool. How much longer til you're in? Looking good.

  2. Thank you! Not sure, probably two more weeks or so. Hoping by the end of August, but trying not to be too attached to any particular date. I'd rather get things done right and take it slow than to rush anything. :)
