I've always dreamed of  HGTV-kind of moving- in moments, when the inspector gives us the keys to the house and we enter the front door with huge anticipation and excitement...:) Well, things do not normally work this way in real life :) Our move-in moment is more like move-in moments, meaning that we are moving in "step-by-step".
1. step was finishing Reni's bedroom, so she was the lucky one to occupy her bedroom first:)
2. Noemi's bedroom followed about half a year later.
3. One of the bathrooms is (almost) fully functional, except for hot water (turning on gas is only allowed after full occupancy), but at least we don't have to line up in front of our tiny bathroom in the motorhome :)
4. After flooring was done throughout the house, we could finally put our bed in the master bedroom, so we have some elbow room, too! Yay!
5. Progress has been made in the kitchen, too. Granite countertop is in, oven is in, so I can actually cook! :)

We've been through ups and downs, but the fact that we are making progress is encouraging. So we just keep going, and I do hope and pray that we'll be celebrating our first Christmas in the house this year! :)

Mindig amolyan HGTV-féle beköltözésről álmodtam, amikor az épitkezési ellenőr (? fogalmam sincs, hogy mondják ezt magyarul :) a kezünkbe adja a ház kulcsait, mi pedig roppant izgatottan belépünk az ajtón. Nos, a dolgok a valóságban általában nem igy történnek :) A mi beköltözésünknek nincs ilyen pillanata, hanem inkább pillanatOK voltak-vannak :) Egy nagy pillanat helyett több apró:)

1. Az első lépés az volt, amikor Reni beköltözött a szobájába, ő volt az első szerencsés!
2. Második lépésként Noémi követte kb. fél évvel később.
3. Az egyik fürdőszoba gyakorlatilag teljesen fukcionál, kivéve, hogy nincs meleg viz, ugyanis a gáz szolgáltatás csak a hivatalos lakásátadás után indulhat el. (biztonsági előirás) De legalább nem kell sorban állnunk a lakókocsi ici-pici fürdője előtt :)
4. Miután a padlóburkolás megtörtént az egész házban, végre betehettük az ágyunkat a hálószobába, szóval most már kicsit szellősebben vagyunk:)
5. A konyhában is haladunk. Gránit munkalapok a helyükön, sütő működik, igy már használni is tudom.

Sok hullámvölgyön vagyunk túl, de a tény, hogy haladunk, bátoritó. Igy aztán megyünk tovább, és azt reméljük, hogy az első "igazi" Karácsonyunkat végre a házban fogjuk tölteni idén:)

Island - munkasziget

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 toilet

We've moved in!! Beköltöztünk! :)

I can hardly believe that - even if it's still not official - we've moved in! 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 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 nothing bett

A big surprise :) Nagy meglepetés

As parents we try to make our kids happy, and I think that was in the back of Wayne's mind when he came up with the idea of finishing Reni's bedroom by the time she gets back from the orientation week at her college. I thought it was a brilliant idea, except for the fact that we only had 5 days to accomplish it :) But we like challenges, so we decided to do our best. I got really excited, since this is something I've been waiting for months: start shopping for furniture, accessories. I'm sure you guys (especially women) can relate to this, right? :) So I started my frantic online shopping on Monday, trying to find the bed that Reni likes (dark wood, not too low profile), but I couldn't find any nice one in the price range we can afford, and the one we had picked earlier with Reni, couldn't have been delivered on time. So I gave up on the new bed, and decided to use the one we had in her old bedroom (a white twin bed).  Besides shopping for accessories, the mai
