^^ no claim with insurance. The builder is taking care of everything.
I (fairly easily) convinced them to pull down the ceiling drywall and replace everything. The drywall isn't that bad, but the mold concern is too great. That is in the works and hasn't happened yet.
Besides being a sucky situation, it hasn't been that hard to deal with yet. Going to test all the plumbing again when the ceiling is out.

^ Good idea.

Yes, there are a couple updates.

We painted a couple rooms. We nearly double the usable size of the back yard by removing small trees and bringing in 6 dump trucks of dirt, then reseeding.

I also installed more cabinets in the kitchen. The builder wanted $6k for the cabinet extension and it would have had glass fronts and a lower writing desk height. We spent $2400 on cabinets and $500 on a piece of matching granite.

We all bought a wool rug for the living room. James is a bit bigger now.

As long as the sale of our house goes through we will be moving into this house in about two months. Not sure it is our forever home or not but it certainly could be.

Looks like a nice secluded lot

It's in a new development so there will be houses built on both sides eventually. It is the biggest lot in the neighborhood (.55 acres) and it backs up to a creek so that part will be fairly secluded.

Pic from yesterday where more siding was added. Can't wait to see the stone


Here is a pic looking out back from covered deck. You can see the rocks where the creek is. Right now there is farm land on the other side that will hopefully never be developed.
