House Cleaning

There was one small car in front of the house this morning.

The garage door was closed and all the debris (plus the box with the trellis for the jasmine) was in the driveway in front of the door. I noticed that the ladder belongs to the electricians.

Inside the house, the door to the garage had purple tape over it.  Ah ha!  The garage floor has been painted.  That bucket in the foreground is another clue.

Out the back door, I could see that they added some grass to the slope down to the golf course.  That is not our lawn; our lawn ends at the stick.  We have very little backyard.

I was so excited, I walked down the slope to have a look from that direction.

They had also patched the bald spot that had been left beside the house.  I may not have mentioned that before.  It is the bluer grass than the rest.

The patch on the back wall where the electrical outlet had been is dry and invisible.

Three women were busy cleaning the house.  They were sweeping, vacuuming and mopping. The one in the dining room had a scrubbing pad under her foot and scrubbed tough spots with it.

The chatty one in the kitchen was using a shop-vac to vacuum out the kitchen cabinets and drawers.  They were littered with sawdust and other bits of trash.

This tiny lady did not speak English.  She was just finishing vacuuming the master bedroom.

Andy’s leg was quite swollen from that fall on the boat in Washington, DC.  I was worried about it and took him to the Urgent Care clinic.  The doctor was a little worried about it too.  She said for him to stay off his feet for the knee/leg to heal faster.  Then she wrote an order for a sonogram to check for blood clots. She said that if they see any blood clots, he was to go directly to the emergency room.  They did not see any blood clots.  Whew!  Andy was relieved.  The swelling and discoloration are a bit scary.  Now it is just a matter of slowly healing.

We went back to the house on our way home.  The door was locked!  We could be getting to the end of the house construction series folks.  Tomorrow, we will stop in the sales office to see if we can get a key. The only things we can think of now are the screen cage out back, a refrigerator, and a washing machine. Oh, and some landscaping improvements.

    Nearly ready to move in. I trust the leg will heal soon

      Today, Andy said that he can tell it is getting better. He has been better about keeping it elevated and that must help.

    My wife it so jealous of you, she wants us to build the same. It would cost an absolute fortune in the UK.
    What am I going to do without my daily dose of house build news?

      I think this is a fairly typical Florida design. Many of the ones I’ve seen have a large room in the center with the master bedroom on one side and the remaining bedrooms on the other. With hundreds of variations, of course. We looked at a lot of houses in Tennessee and Florida and this one was reasonably priced in comparison. I don’t know what I am going to post when the house is done!! I guess moving in for a while. Then, we’ll have to do some exploring in the area.

        Have you decided on RV downsize yet or is that a decision for later?


      • Dinata Misovec September 23, 2017 / 10:03 pm

        Yes, we want to downsize since we will no longer be living in it full time. We are thinking of a Class B. We miss some aspects of traveling in a smaller motorhome. It is so much more flexible. We will wait to we get settled into the house before working on that.
