Our home will ready July 10th Wednesday, Jun 27 2012 

DSLD is planning to have the house completed by July 10th.  that’s like 14 days or something…(2 weeks from now) then it will sit and just be pretty while inspections and walkthroughs and punch-lists are corrected then we close.  Erika is so essited she can hardly contain herself.  I too am essited.

I spoke to Tom, our landlord and advised him we are planning to close on July 20th so July will be our last month.  Tom is terrific, and super-nice and generally great.  If anyone needs a great Condo to rent in Port Louis, be ready in August, because Tom is the best landlord we have ever had and the property is a wonderful condo.  We have really enjoyed living here, but as soon as La Maison du Rustre is ready, we’ll be there.

We have a sodded lawn, end to end.  I gotta say it’s an aweful lot of grass.  Our lot is not in an acre sized lot subdivision or development, it’s in a regular development in Covington.  that being said, I think we might have gotten one of the largest lots in the hood, it sure feels that way looking at it with a house and all the grass on it.  So I am left with a bit of a quandry.  I have a teenage boy who I could coxe into mowing our lawn for us, but, I really like cutting the grass.  It gives me a sense of pride to have a well maintained lawn, even while renting, I really hate having a disheveled lawn.  But this is a big lot.  I am considering what type of lawn mower to get for the new place.  A Simple push mower, a riding mower, a self propelled, oh the choices are endless.  On the one hand we had a clunker of a lawn mower when I was tasked with the responsibility as a teenager, but that thing ran like a champ, chewing through downed branches, endless pecans and a dry, dead patch the sixe of Rhode Island in the back yard.  Every week it took the pounding and the dust

We stopped by this morning and Steve the supervisor was there. He was kind enough to unlock the door and let us check it out. Just have to say, we heard Steve was a great guy, and the few minutes we spent with him proved that to be true.

Another update from Kassandra at DSLD

Punch Out Stage Update

Here is the final update on your home is starting the Punch Phase. This includes putting the finishing touches on your brand new home! In this stage we will get the gas and electricity turned on. Landscaping and sod will be installed.  We also use this stage to do final inspections necessary by the local municipalities and quality inspections by our staff. Please wait  to hear from us before making any final plans for moving. 

This stage will bring your home to completion.”

We have also headed full speed ahead on the nitty gritty loan stuff.  Nerves are shot.  But so excited.
