That was what I was thinking, guys!

Do you know the concrete steps? There are built-in planters there. You can barely see them, because they are no longer in use, and they are very shallow, but they are there.

I'm glad that you see my vision!

I like the sound of that grayish moss green. And then a red door!

Everything is still on track! There's nothing left to do. I got the insurance today. Added my autos to it.

There's a sold sign out in the front, Freddie says. I think I'll take a picture of it, tomorrow.

There's been a lot of workers buzzing around the house.

We are so excited!

I have tomorrow off, but there is not much to do.

One more week.

Gosh, when will this come?

Get a hammer and knock me out until next Friday, gem.

YIKES, fallfanatic! Now, you did it! Nobody ever misspells on the Knoxville forum.

Hiknapster, we are all so proud of you and Fred and the way you have handled all of this, that it is smooth sailing from here. Promise. Just enjoy! This is almost as exciting as having a baby!!

This next week is just time to catch your breath. Thanks for sharing all of this with us. We have loved every minute of it.

I'm moving June 27, so I gave them almost two weeks. You don't need to give them that much time. But don't expect the same day or even the next. If you want, give me your number and I can set you up. I work at Comcast.
You are awesome! As soon as we have our address I will do that!

and I LOVE slate gray! Just give the door a "poppy" color...well, not a POPPY color...lol...u know what I mean--something to stand out!

Can't help myself here...Maybe not quite Slate but something abit lighter, then all white trim, white shutters a bright red door, use the planters with red and white flowers to bring the door forward since the door appears to be a set back, this will bring guests toward the door. For a sleaker front light go with a chrome and glass lite, use a silver kick on the bottom of the door, ect. ect. ect. But now you had some good advice WAIT a year, live with it then decide. this goes with the inside to, wait. You will have a better feel on the house if you are not sure of a style you are wanting to obtain. Not to mention any other expenses that may pop up in the next couple of months. I always tell new home owners that are unsure to wait on the interiors for at lease 3 months, unless of course, there is some gawd ugly color that needs to go asap. Take your time and enjoy the house, then make your decisions!! Was there any bets on how long till I had to put in an opinion on this one????
