I'm proud of my man:)

The motorhome in the backyard..It was quite challanging to park it there:) A lakókocsi a hátsó kertben...elég nagy feladat volt beparkolni!


Wayne, having fun with the forklift:) Wayne, amint éppen "jatszik" az emelővel:)

I'm proud of my man, because he managed to park the motorhome in the backyard..It wasn't easy, took quite some effort to manoever there, but finally the motorhome is where it should be -and where it will be for the next 6 months. Not only did my hubby park the trailer, he also had some fun moving the blocks around:) He rented a forklift..it was fun watch him "playing" with that machine:) Well, when it comes to machines, men are big boys, aren't they?
The other good news is that we finally signed the contract with the contractor, and now are ready to demo the old house and build the new one! Even if we can't start to build the backwall, we still can go ahead and take the next step, since we have the permit for the demo and excavation...The only problem - as I mentioned earlier - was to move the motorhome and make room for it..That's being done, we're now getting ready to say goodbye to our house:) I'm getting excited :) So are the kids:) Good thing, Reni's last day at school is June 4th, so she doesn't have to study in the shed:)
All of a sudden, the things seem to speed up: today (Thursday, June 3rd) the gas was disconnected, and if I hadn't told the DWP guys to wait till Monday, even the electricity would've been disconnected too:-)

Büszke vagyok az én emberemre, mert sikerült beparkolni a lakókocsit a hátsókertbe...nem volt könnyű feladat, elég sokat kellett manővereznie, de végre ott áll a lakókocsi, ahol kell lennie - és ahol lesz közel 6 hónapig. Az én páromnak nemcsak sikerült beparkolnia, de még jót "játszott" is, amikor a beton blokkokat pakolta át az emelővel...Bérelt egy motoros "békát"...jópofa volt nézni őt, amint élvezettel "játszott" a géppel...Hiába, a férfiak már csak nagy gyerekek, amikor egy gépről van szó, nem igaz?
A másik jó hir, hogy végre aláirtuk a szerződést a fővállalkozóval, és igy most már nekikezdhetünk a ház bontásának, és az új ház épitésének. Még ha nem is tudjuk elkezdeni a hátsó fal épitését jun. végéig, de el tudjuk kezdeni a bontást és az alap ásást, hiszen erre megvan már az engedély. Az egyedüli probléma, ahogy már korábban emlitettem, csak az volt, hogyan helyezzuk el a lakókocsit. Azzal, hogy ezt megoldottuk, most már készen állunk arra, hogy végső búcsút mondjunk a régi házunknak:) Kezd izgi lenni! A gyerekeknek is! Szerencsére Reninek ezen a pénteken vége van a sulinak, igy nem kell a szerszámos kamrában tanulni:) (ez tűnik egz alternativának, ha már nagyon hiányik neki egy kis egyedüllét:) Ha a Gondviselő is úgy tervezi, egy hét múlva indul a munka!

We've moved in!! Beköltöztünk! :)

I can hardly believe that - even if it's still not official - we're in the house! I am way behind with posts, but here I am:) So I left off with some photos of the kitchen and master bedroom. As soon as we put a bed in the master bedroom around early September 2014, we could finally move in. It felt like being newly weds, with just a bed and a chest of drawers there, but we were happy campers to sleep in a king size bed! :)
Along with that I could also start using a bigger bathroom. Wayne figured it out that the propane tank could actually be hooked up on the gas line, so we had hot water in the bathroom.
Since then we've finished the railings on both balconies, and some touch-up work in the kids' bathroom.
My happiest moment, however, was when I could move in the kitchen! It happened in early January 2015. Oh boy, how long I had been waiting for that moment!
Now I'm a happy owner of a nice, big kitchen. Some touch-up work still has to be done, but there's n…

What is it like to live in a motorhome? Milyen is egy lakókocsiban lakni?

Since it takes a few days for the concrete to dry, I thought to "take a brake" and show you around in our little, cozy motor home :) Though Wayne is an expert when it comes to living or traveling in a motorhome, I had no idea what it was like, until we first were "introduced" to this guy. It's a 1985 36' Titan, and still running. Of course a lot of stuff have been replaced or changed in it. Until about 3 years ago, my parents-in-law used it, and as far as I heard, they had had some adventurous trips, as far as Alaska, British Columbia etc. Well, seems that after 20 years it was time for a change, so they bought a nice new Rexhall push-out giant, and we "inherited" the old one. As a new "homeowner" I had to learn how everything worked. By now I've been familiar with most of them...air conditioning, gas stove and oven, ceiling fans, shower and bathroom (well, that's kind of an exaggeration, since there's only a sink and a toile…
