We just got back from visiting our in-progress home. Yes, we’d been there just 2 weeks ago and saw that there was some major progress made as drywall had been put up!
In two weeks time though, a lot has changed! First thing we noticed once we were there was that the drywall had been pretty much sealed up. If you look at the pictures from the post above, the drywall was up but it didn’t look finished yet. It looks finished now. What got us over here today though was that we had confirmation that all the cabinetry was up!!! And boy oh boy, finished walls and cabinetry up in all the rooms makes this place look that much more finished. It’s fucking fantastic. Look for yourself!
Cabinets & Finished Drywall – Sept 23, 2018
You’ll see in those last few pictures that we ended up going for a long walk. Larry’s commute will be markedly improved once we move, as he’s no longer going to have to cross the 101/170 interchange or the 5/134 interchange – both of which are terrible and soul-killing. Mine though? It’s going to take some figuring out. For going into DTLA, I do have plenty of options but none of them are like, super easy. There’s an Orange Line stop about a mile south of the house, so Larry suggested we walk it to see how it goes. The day was right for it, so off we went. Saw the pretty Valley Glen Community Park before getting to the Orange Line stop. Definitely a do-able walk, but I’m thinking some kind of bike or scooter would make this easier. Anyway, on the walk back to the house, we walked up Coldwater Canyon and saw the Great Wall mural of California History. It’s pretty cool. Walking through the neighborhood was a nice way to get a better feeling for the area, and I think we’re gonna like it here.
YESTERDAY was the Sound of Music Sing-a-Long at the Hollywood Bowl, and it was wonderful. I don’t have to explain it again, do I? It’s what we do every year and we’ll continue to do as long as they keep having it. Based on yet another sold out crowd, I doubt it’s going away any time soon. Melissa Peterman was the host (for her 14th time in a row!) and is just fabulous and glorious and so quick on her feet. Love her. There was a marriage proposal this year, which was new! Anyway, The Sound of Music is just as glorious as it ever was, and I love it so.
