Garage floor's done! Elkészült a garázs padlózata

Another step closer....we've got the garage floor done ( or basement ceiling)! It's good to see the progress, and how Dave's crew is working on our house. As I told Dave the other day, I didn't really like Mondays in the past, knowing that the whole week is still ahead, and the weekend is so far....but now I kinda like Mondays, because after a "long" weekend when they're not around, the crew is back and back to work...:)
So yesterday I was talking to Dave and he said they'd probably be done with all the floors by the end of next week, and then they can start working on the framing of the first floor..and I was like, "so when is the concrete coming?" Since I'm from Europe, I can't imagine a house, especially floors, without solid concrete:) Dave started laughing and pointed to the floor saying, "hey, this is SOLID...you'll have concrete on the driveway". OK, I trust them, they know it better than I do...:)) Just in case, though, I checked the floor if it was really that solid :)) So walked up there with Noemi, and tested it by jumping, stomping on it. It is OK :))

Egy újabb lépéssel közelebb...elkészült a garázs padlózata (ami egyben a basement mennyezete). Jó látni a haladást, ahogy Dave csapata dolgozik a házon. Dave-nek mondtam a minap, hogy régebben nem szerettem a hétfőket, mert olyankor az egész hét előtted van, és a hétvége még nagyon messzinek tűnik...mostanában viszont valahogy kedvelem a hétfőt, mert a hosszú hétvége után, amikor nincs itt a csapat, a hét első napján ismét itt vannak, és megint dolgoznak:) Tegnap beszélgettem Dave-vel, és azt mondta, valószinűleg jövő héten befejezik a padlózatot, és kezdik a falakat..én meg rákérdeztem, hogy a beton mikor érkezik? Hát, igen, európai agyammal nem tudok egy házat, főleg a padlózatot szilád beton nélkül elképzelni.. Dave elkezdett nevetni, és a padlóra mutatva mondta: EZ SZILÁRD, nézd csak meg. Beton majd a kocsifeljárón lesz...:) Na jó, rendben, bizom benne, hogy tudják, mit csinálnak:) Azért biztos, ami biztos, leellenőriztem a dolgot, és Noémivel felmentünk rá, ugráltunk, dobogtunk...Minden rendben, tényleg nagyon stabil:)

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…
