If you didn't know, hubs and I moved from Hong Kong six months ago to build our dream house in Georgia. We came with the goal of building a modern and energy efficient home on our land. Well, a little bit of time later (and a lot of extra cash later) than we expected, but it's nearly done!
I love this house! What makes it so special for me is that hubs designed the entire thing himself, from the layout to the materials to the roof heights. Truly one of a kind! The house itself is completely finished, painting, and air-conditioned (woo-hoo) but there's that small issue of furniture. Although at this point, I'm pretty ok with sleeping on the floor!
The kitchen is completely from Ikea--cabinets, appliances, the whole kit and caboodle. Here's the most recent picture, but more has been done since then:
The countertops have been measured and will arrive in a week or so--I can't wait! We have a (completely unassembled and in boxes) couch and bed, so we're getting there. For some reason I have to wait to buy a treadmill until there are things like toilets and tables. Lame, I know. OBVIOUSLY I would rather run sheltered from the Georgia summer heat than eat off a table.
Tomorrow I'm going to be sneaky and do a trial session at a local gym I have absolutely no intention of joining. I just want to run my 17 miles in air conditioning! Hopefully they don't think I'm crazy when I turn the "free trial" into a 3 hour run fest. Wish me luck--17 miles is my longest run ever!
Have you ever used a gym's free trial before joining, or just because?
I usually use the free trial even if I know I like it, to save a bit of money. There are a few gyms around me though, I might as well try them all out for free, right?
What could you not live without, if you were getting ready to move into a new house?
No bed? Ok, mattresses or sleeping bags will do. No oven? Sandwiches and salads are fine. Toilets? I draw the line at toilet people. That's gross.
