Digging deeper - Mélyebbre ásunk

It's been a while since I last posted something on the blog, but life hasn't stopped and I need to catch up :-) So what's going on now? We have a big hole just in front of our motorhome! Our dream home is starting to take shape...well, at least we can see where it's going to be :-) The initial excavation started just before we left for our regular end-of-August visit with Wayne's parents up in Cupertino. We (the girls of course) felt like Rapunzel being "rescued" by prince Charming:)) Instead of letting our hair down though, Dave, our contractor helped us down on a ladder - into the big hole and out on the street...because there was no more "front yard" in front of the motor home...just the huge hole -  where our house is going to be:-)
Coming back after a week, we found an even bigger and deeper hole. Man, it is scary! :) Basically, the entire lot is a big hole:) The only way we can get to the motor home now is going around on a narrow pathway. Good thing we're not afraid of height :)
Dave and his crew has finished the excavation and now we're ready for the next step: foundation...making good progress!

Elég régen irtam a blogra,de az élet azóta sem állt meg, igy ideje, hogy beszámoljak az újabb fejleményekről. Szóval mi is történik mostanában?  Egy jókora gödör tátong a lakókocsi előtt. Az álom ház kezd alakulni...legalábbis látjuk, hol lesz az alap:) Pont a szokásos augusztusi cupertino-i látogatásunk előtti napon kezdődtek a munkák. Úgy éreztük magunkat (mi, lányok, természetesen) mint Rapunzel, akit éppen megment a herceg...:) Csak épp a hajunk leengedése helyett egy létrát engedett le Dave, hogy lemászhassunk rajta a nagy gödörbe, majd ki az utcára a másik oldalon. Ugyanis a lakókocsi előtt már nem volt semmi, csak egy hatalmas lyuk...
Egy héttel később, amikor hazaérkeztünk, még nagyobb és még mélyebb gödör fogadott minket. Mondhatom, elég ijesztő! :) Gyakorlatilag az egész telek egy nagy gödör...A lakókocsiba csak egy keskeny ösvényen juthatunk be a gödör szélén. Még szerencse, hogy nincs tériszonyunk:) Dave és a csapata befejezte az alap ásást, és most következhet az alapozás!

Digging deeper- mélyebbre ásunk

The excavation is done - az alap ásás kész

Doesn't it look like an archeological site? - Nem úgy néz ki, mint egy régészeti feltárás?

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…
