Let the fun begin / Kezdődjék a móka :-)

...well as far as I'm concerned, the fun begins now:-) Since I don't really know much about drilling, rebars, sump pipes and pumps, and who knows what else, I haven't had a chance to get involved in the project so far. But now, as we're transitioning to "my territory" ie. interior design, I'm getting more excited. I talked to Dave, our contractor yesterday and I was also introduced to our plumber (not Joe :-) I'm going to get a list with the number of faucets and sinks we'll need (it's not that I can't count them on the house plan)... So I'm ready for my first "designer" challenge :-) Man, I've just checked a website, and found thousands of different faucets... Good thing the price tags help me to eliminate quite a few of them, and I also got some good advice what to look for when we pick a faucet.

I just realized that I haven't shared the house plan with you guys yet, so high time to upload it.  (Click on the picture to see the original).I can't wait to upload "real" pictures of the real house as it's being built :)

...legalábbis ami engem illet, a móka csak most kezdődik. Mivel nem igazán tudok sokat a talaj fúrásról, vasbeton oszlopokról, vizelvezető csövekről és szivattyúkról meg még ki tudja miről, ezért eddig nem nagyon voltam aktiv részese a projektnek. Most viszont, hogy az " én területemre" evezünk, már inkább izgalmasabb a dolog. Tegnap beszéltem Dave-vel, az épitészünkkel, aki bemutatott a vizvezeték szerelőnek is (nem Joe:-) Kapok majd egy listát, hogy mennyi csaptelepre és mosdókagylora lesz szükségünk (nem mintha ezt nem tudnám megszámolni a tervrajzon:)
Szóval készen állok a első "lakberendezői" kihivásra. Te jó ég, most néztem meg egy weboldalt, csaptelepek ezrei közül választhatok...Még szerencse, hogy az ár némileg segit a szelektálásban, és kaptam pár jó tanácsot is, mire érdemes figyelni, amikor csaptelepet választunk...
Most jöttem rá, hogy még meg sem osztottam veletek a tervrajzokat, ideje feltöltenem....(Kattints a képre, hogy nagyobb méretben lásd).:( Alig várom, hogy a valódi, készülő házról töltsek fel képeket...

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…
