We've moved in!! Beköltöztünk! :)

Recent posts
I've always dreamed of  HGTV-kind of moving- in moments, when the inspector gives us the keys to the house and we enter the front door with huge anticipation and excitement...:) Well, things do not normally work this way in real life :) Our move-in moment is more like move-in moments, meaning that we are moving in "step-by-step".
1. step was finishing Reni's bedroom, so she was the lucky one to occupy her bedroom first:)
2. Noemi's bedroom followed about half a year later.
3. One of the bathrooms is (almost) fully functional, except for hot water (turning on gas is only allowed after full occupancy), but at least we don't have to line up in front of our tiny bathroom in the motorhome :)
4. After flooring was done throughout the house, we could finally put our bed in the master bedroom, so we have some elbow room, too! Yay!
5. Progress has been made in the kitchen, too. Granite countertop is in, oven is in, so I can actually cook! :)

We've been through up…

Still alive and kicking:) Még élünk és virulunk:)

It's been more than a year since my last post....my bad:) Well, seems that our project is getting closer to the finish line...Thanks to my in-laws' generosity, we can keep going. Noemi's bedroom is done, so she could move in, too.
Flooring and tiling is done throughout the house, now we're working on the details. Final plumbing, getting appliances, shopping for bathroom vanities etc. I can't wait for shopping for furniture and accessories...Hopefully soon:)

Több mint egy éve irtam utoljára...az én hibám:) De úgy tűnik, közeledünk a célhoz. Köszönhetően a család segitségének, előre tudunk lépni ismét. Elkészült Noémi szobája, igy ő is beköltözhetett.
A burkolás, csempézés kész, most már a részletek következnek: vizvezetékek "beüzemelése", háztartási gépek beszerzése stb. Már alig várom, hogy a lakberendezésnél tartsunk...remélhetőleg hamarosan...


Another small step in the kitchen - egy újabb kis lépés előre a konyhában

Well, yes, this is a small step, but at least we are moving forward :)
The handles are here :)

Hát igen, tényleg kis lépés, de legalább haladunk :) Megérkeztek a konyhaszekrény fogantyúk. Ki gondolta volna, hogy ezt is meg kell ünnepelni:)



A big surprise :) Nagy meglepetés

As parents we try to make our kids happy, and I think that was in the back of Wayne's mind when he came up with the idea of finishing Reni's bedroom by the time she gets back from the orientation week at her college. I thought it was a brilliant idea, except for the fact that we only had 5 days to accomplish it :) But we like challenges, so we decided to do our best. I got really excited, since this is something I've been waiting for months: start shopping for furniture, accessories. I'm sure you guys (especially women) can relate to this, right? :)
So I started my frantic online shopping on Monday, trying to find the bed that Reni likes (dark wood, not too low profile), but I couldn't find any nice one in the price range we can afford, and the one we had picked earlier with Reni, couldn't have been delivered on time. So I gave up on the new bed, and decided to use the one we had in her old bedroom (a white twin bed). 
Besides shopping for accessories, the main c…

Stucco is finally done - Végre elkészült a vakolás

Yay, another step forward...I don't count the days, weeks any more...:) I know that God's timing is the perfect timing. So we've been hanging in there for a while, and know that in the end it'll worth it :)
 Stucco is finally done, so no more scaffolds around the house. From the outside, it looks (almost) finished :)
Several interior doors have also been put in, but as usual, we have some problems again:) Not all of them were the right size, and our contractor cut them to fit them in...It is not a big deal for me, but Wayne thinks that now the handles are too low...

Hurrá, ismét egy lépést tettünk előre. Már nem számolom a napokat, heteket, tudom, hogy Isten ideje a tökéletes:) Szóval jó ideje kitartunk, és tudjuk, hogy a végén majd elmondhatjuk: érdemes volt!
Néhány beltéri ajtót is beraktak, de mint általában, itt isprobléma akadt:) Néhány ajtó nem a megfelelő méret volt, igy az aljából le lett vágva kb. 5 cm. Nem nagy ügy nekem, de Wayne szerint igy túl alacsonyra ker…

Entry Door- Bejárati ajtó

Finally we got our entry door installed. Gave up on the arch on top of the door, it would have cost too much. Much to Noemi's regret, we had to "evict" the little sparrow chicks that had been living hidden in their nest above the arch:)

Végre megérkezett a bejárati ajtó. A felső ivről le kellett mondanunk, mert túl sokba került volna.Noémi legnagyobb bánatára, ki kellett "költöztetnünk" a kis verbfiókákat, amelyek az ajtónyilás feletti résben fészkeltek.
