This last week, we were handed the keys to our new home!
Actually, I found them while cleaning the upper cabinets of the kitchen.
None the less, the house was turned over to us on Friday!
All the contractors were finished!
We were almost finished sealing the floors.
We sealed the Paper Bag Floor.
We sealed the Paver Brick Floor.
We finished sealing the Pallet Wood Floor.
On Saturday, we were driving to pick up our furniture from the Santa Fe Company and buy a mattress, when we realized...
Friday was May 3rd.
May 3rd, for some people in Oklahoma, is the anniversary of an F5 tornado that caused major devastation to our state.
May 3rd to us is the 8th month anniversary of the HOUSE FIRE!
We went from this
To one of these
To this blessing
To Our Beautiful New Home
IN EIGHT MONTHS!
September 3, 2012 - May 3, 2013
Although it was eight months from the loss of the old house to the completion of the new house, the house build only took a total of 159 days!
