We left on the 9th for Amarillo. I haven't seen my Amarillo grand kids, son and daughter in law since July so it was time for a visit.
One thing I will say about Amarillo, it has the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.
We are here until first of December. We are going to celebrate two holidays at once. That is because this lucky family is going to Disney World for Christmas!
Of course, we leave and they install our granite counter tops and sinks. This is the picture Mike sends me. As you can see, you can't see much because everything is covered up so they can paint. Mike is just teasing me.
Christmas tree is up but so are the pumpkins and thanksgiving decorations. We are ready for both holidays!
Off the subject and back in Houston, we came across this setup at the resort. I have never seen this type of hook up on a fifth wheel.
It's starting to look like a house. Cabinets were installed today.
Look at those kitchen cabinets! We don't have electricity, so it's dark but the cabinets have a grey stain on them. I know they look brown but they are a brown/grey.
This picture is of the living room standing at the bar. You can see the crown molding in this picture and all the dirt from the rain. The front doors are not the ones we will have when it's finished. These are just temporary ones.
Another view of the kitchen. The granite has been ordered and should be in next week.
This is our pantry.
This is the view from kitchen to back door and mud room.
Our bedroom. I love the five panel doors.
This is our bathroom.
This is our closet.
Guest bathroom. I didn't get a picture of tub/shower. It's to the right.
Next pictures should show granite, flat work (concrete outside) and flooring. Electricity should be hooked up by then too so that pictures wont be as dark.
All the dots or what looks like dots on the walls, are the texture that has been applied. Paint is a-coming soon.
This looks like some kind of monster but it's just the septic system. It keeps growing!
This is a view from the laundry room through the kitchen and mud room to the back door.
part of our bathroom...mostly the shower
the living room, bar and kitchen area
They are ready to tape and mud the drywall. I am picking out appliances now.
Did I mention that I lost my small coach purse. The little one that hangs off my arm. Well, I guess it fell off, I left it on a table or Doug threw it away with the trash. I have cancelled all my credit cards and tomorrow I will go get new drivers license. What a pain!!! Insurance cards should all be in the mail too. I hope I haven't forgotten anything. I think I am going to take a picture of everything in my new wallet so I will know what is in it, if there ever is a next time.
We sat outside most of the day today on this back porch. Though there was a nice breeze, I wish the ceiling fans were up to help when there was a lull in the breezes.
There was a lot of sheetrock going up today. It amazed me at how fast it was going up.
Then the guys showed up to put in the septic system. Things sure have come a long way in that department!
After digging a 6x7 ft hole they installed the first tank
Then they lengthened the hole another 5 ft.
and put in another tank
Then dug out another 5 ft. and added the third tank. Tomorrow after inspection, they will cover these up and dig the lines. Don't fully understand how but from the time "it" goes from tank 1 to tank 3, "it" will be "clean" water that will water the back field. 😅
Now back to inside the house....
There were 4 guys working sheetrock today.
This is a nook in the walkway to the master bedroom.
one of the guest bedrooms
master bedroom, trey ceiling still undone
They should have Mike's house completed tomorrow and will start on ours. Ours should be done in one day at the speed this crew works. For some reason my pictures didn't all upload. I will add more tomorrow. Doug has a doctor appointment tomorrow so it will be late.
