They laid more sod (they ran out before they could finish though) so the yard is really starting to look great!
The trim guys came and finished up the trim. They installed the trim in the last few rooms and then sanded and painted all the trim in the house.
We were so excited to see the finishing touches being done on the house and then last night we decided to walk down one last time and as we approached the front door (just to see if it might possibly be unlocked) I saw the door and screamed! Scared Micah! I screamed because this is what I saw ...

We also made our first purchase for the home (kind of). Our finances are on complete LOCK-DOWN due to our mortgage. We cannot open new credit, we cannot use the credit we have, and we certainly cannot spend any of the cash we have saved. But we knew that Labor Day was our best chance of getting a good (or even a great) deal on a refrigerator. And since we did not buy a refrigerator through Ryan Homes we also knew we had to buy one as soon as we closed. So we headed to HH Gregg to check out their refrigerators and see how they could help us. We found a refrigerator that we loved (we decided not to go with the GE that matched our other appliances) and the store manager told us that we could put a small deposit down (100 dollars) and that would lock in the Labor Day sale price for us. We scheduled delivery for October 2, though we can change that if we need to (Praying that we don't have to). I am so excited that we bought our first thing for the new house and I LOVE the refrigerator that we picked.
The painters are supposed to be back today for a final coat of paint and touch-ups. Then a cleaning crew is schedule to clean the entire house Tuesday. After that our PM will start going through and fixing and finishing up things. Cannot believe it's almost done!
27 days till closing (praying)
