Back on track! Sinen vagyunk...:)



YAY! After a two-month setback we're finally back on track. I can hardly believe the work has actually started today. It turned out that we can't get away without shoring. So our engineer had to draw the shoring plan and we had to wait for it to be approved...Boy, it's been the longest two months ever! Especially when you can't do anything but wait, and you depend on other people's schedule...We had hoped that by the time we would be back from our month-long vacation in Hungary, the foundation would be done...well, it didn't even start by the time we got back at the end of July.
But  here we are, August 17th, and from now on we can wake up at the beep-beep sound of the forklift, as Dave is backing up trying to lift up all those I-beams :) So good-bye nice, quiet sunny mornings, and welcome construction noise:) I would have never thought that one day this noise would be a charming sound to my ears:) It actually is, because it means we're making progress. Thank You, Lord, for giving us patience so far! :)

Hurrá! 2 hónapnyi csúszás után végre ismét sinen vagyunk. Alig hiszem el, hogy tényleg elkezdték a munkát ma. A csúszás oka, hogy kiderült, mégsem úszhatjuk meg támfalazás nélkül az alapozást. A mérnökünknek igy erre is el kellett készitenie a tervet, beadni, jóváhagyatni...Te jó ég, ez volt a leghosszabb 2 hónap az életemben (majdnem). A legnehezebb az, amikor nem tudsz mit csinálni, csak várni, mert más emberek időbeosztásához kell igazodnod.
Azt reméltük, hogy mire visszajövünk július végén az egy hónapos magyarországi nyaralásból, az alap már kész lesz. Ehhez képest még el sem kezdték akkor!
De végre itt vagyunk, júl.17-én végre ismét munkába lendült a csapat :-) Mostantól aztán búcsút mondhatunk a szép csendes nyári reggeleknek, és az emelő tolatódudájának hangjára ébredhetünk, amint Dave rakodja a vascölöpöket. Soha nem gondoltam volna, hogy valaha is kedves lesz számomra ez, meg a markológép hangja. De bizony az, mert azt jelzi, hogy haladunk előre a munkálatokkal. Köszönöm, Uram, hogy türelmet adtál eddig! Reméljük, továbbra is simán halad minden.

Szia!
Már vártam, hogy elkészüljön az újabb bejegyzés és látom, hogy az oldal is megújult és nagyon szép lett!:)
Remélem most már minden a rendes kerékvágásban fog menni és drukkolok, hogy ne legyen újabb csúszás!

Bence, köszi:) Igen, most már remélhetőleg nem lesz csúszás, és gyakrabban is tudok irni, ha halad 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…
