New House almost ready

I haven't talked much about our new home since we left but it appears that it is nearing completion.  From what I've been told by the builder the only outstanding items are installation of the appliances, which should be taken care of in the next week, and some seasonal exterior deficiencies which will be finished as soon as the weather allows.  After repeated request for some pictures we have finally received some and I have posted them below.  I don't think the lighting in the pictures does justice to some of the colours but I think we will be pleased when we see it live on April 7th, the day scheduled for our tour and takeover of the house.  Very exciting.  Next comes furniture shopping and construction of a sun room and patio.

I will say that this hasn't always been a smooth road and frankly I expected a few bumps and turns in our journey.  Being this far away during much of the construction process has not helped and little problems that have arisen have required a lot of trust on our part that our instructions will be carried out.  

Anyways here are a few shots of a couple of the rooms.

Living-room and fireplace.  You can just see one of the 5 in-ceiling speakers.
Now the important question.  How big a TV do I hang on that wall?

Lori got her Farmers sink and the light fixtures with Edison lights.  

Kitchen is a lot smaller than our last one so more culling may be required. 

Mud room provides some additional cabinet space plus room for our W/D and a wine fridge

Ensuite. Lots of room for us to both get ready for work in the morning.
Wait a minute.  We don't have to do that anymore.  
So there it is or at least part of it.  Just enough to wet our appetites and motivate us to get home.  While we have thoroughly enjoyed our trip, despite my periodic complaints about the rain, it is time to get settled into our new place.  If nothing else the last 9 months in the trailer has confirmed that full-timing is not for us.
