Gas, springle system, interior

After a long pause(at least for me), the house gets some work done. Questar gas already installed the meter for the gas, the electricity is still pending. I could not enter inside of the house today because they are working in sealing all the sheet rock, ceiling and walls. The interior doors are ready to be installed. Yesterday and Today I started asking for quotes to get my mortgage insurance, after consulting several companies and read some reviews, I decided for Travelers. They have excellent rates and excellent reviews.

After this long weekend that the workers were away I noticed how hard they worked today. They worked in the ceiling and walls. They finished most of them. Addiel's room is finished and they are still working in Joel's room and our room. With this new addition, The house feels more and more a home.
Today I started to receive some mail into my new mailbox and I asked Progressive for a quote for my mortgage insurance and I got a big discount since I have my car insurance with them. I will ask for some more quote to compare, but the one progressive is giving me is $155 less than the one offered by the lender in the GFS.

Doors, Insulation, sheetrock installed

The house is completely closed! The front door and the garage entrance door are placed.

Now the insulation is convering all the walls of the house and you feel less cold once you are inside. With a little extra , my garage will be insulated too and I have to thanks my brothers in Christ: Sean and Baltazar for the idea.

The sheetrock arrived and hopefully next week all the walls will be covered and ready.

Today the windows were installed. Through the windows we can see the mountains. Because of that the kids decided which room will each of them will take. Addiel will take the front room and Joel the back room. Our house will be the only model with small windows in the bathrooms. Thanks Sean for the great energy saving idea.

Brag approved my application for the First Time Home Buyer Program

Today Bear River Association of Government approved my application for the funding toward closing cost or down payment. The application required to take a home education class, be pre-approved by a mortgage lender, picture of the house to buy and incomes. With this program and the IDA program plus the closing cost being covered by the seller and the tax credit, build my house will be much easier. I believe anyone can do it.

Heater, Plumbing, Wiring

Today I stopped to see the construction like I do every evening and I saw the heater installed and the rough air conditioned. The plumbing is all set and they started the wiring. Most of the house electrical outlet are installed and the lights too. All the wiring was done today, so I guess this week will be finished. I also saw some blue materials in the roof, but I don't know what are they for, I guess the roof is not finished yet, well tomorrow as normally I will check.

I am exciting for my tax refund. Hopefully I will be able to get the $8,000 tax credit.
