The big pour! It took 6 of these trucks to do the whole shop floor and driveway.
Smoothing it out. This whole thing was cured in just hours with the heat we are having. The guys raced to get the texturing and accents in before it was too late.
Ahhh, that looks scary to me!
From start to finish on the wood portion of the shop took just two days! Next comes siding and roofing.

Guest Bed Room is open for business!
Hot tub has been installed but needs to be drained and moved right under the windows to meet code. It seems the electricians are worried that one of you visitors in a drunken moment will reach up while standing in the tub and grab a hold of an outside light fixture, there by sending all occupants of said Jacuzzi... On to the afterlife.
Note: stairs to back door, one big hunk of concrete I tell ya!
Those boxes contain the computers and about 10 hours of hook up once we get to Kuna.
Hello there my name is Dennis! My job is to make your move go just as smooth as possible. I however will not do any of that, but instead almost kill you with my stupidity and ignorance!
"We gotta pack it tight or it will move around and make the truck unstable." Famous Dennis quote, heard often... Way too often.
This might take some time to sort out!
As we have been unpacking there has been one consistent theme: melted candles. Oh sure they still smell nice and you could some how light them, if only you could just pry the damn things off of what ever they have melted themselves around!
We both are drinking gallons of water, not for enjoyment or to wash down a meal... But to ensure we don't dry up and blow away!
I think between the time change, the altitude change (we are around 2600 feet) and the change in temperature I deserve another week of "vacation?"

I relax now on a couch looking out a bay window watching the sun rise while air conditioned cold rains down on me. This is good because yesterday the temperature was 102 degrees! The A/C has run non-stop to keep the house at 70 degrees day and night. I don't think it got below 75 over night, but today has started with some cloud cover, so I am hoping for a cooler day.
The master bedroom has been our unpacking focus so far, as having it completed brought a certain feeling of calm to our lives. The guest room, sitting room, laundry room are also pretty much done.
Mishra the cat has not missed a beat! She is doing well and if you need to find her just head to the nearest A/C vent or under a ceiling fan. For her the day consists of sleeping, the night learning the new house and trying to wake Deb and I up.
Today we are going to lay low and not do too much, as a break is well deserved and much needed. Breakfast is on my mind right now. We found a small cafe in Kuna where we both had a huge breakfast with coffee, the bill was only $11.43! Gas here is currently $2.81. Trash service is $32 dollars a quarter, no limit on how many cans! I guess with as hot as it gets here no one has the heart to charge you.
I plan on heading to an internet coffee house today and uploading some photos, so get ready.

The house will not be ready until Monday morning, so when we arrive we will move into the builders motor home for the night. The hardwood floors are getting their final layer of sealant and it will need Sunday night to cure. Even then, we will have to lay moving blankets all over the floors on Monday and allow only rubber inflated wheels on the movers dollies. This last little but of stress only makes us laugh! "Is that all you got left?"
It is supposed to only take one day to unload the contents of the moving truck into the new house. I feel the sweetest day of my life so far just might be Tuesday morning when I wake up and control my own destiny again! We will see. Each day brings us closer to the end of this adventure and then, the beginning of yet another.

Tomorrow brings the packers back and begins the shuttle truck run to haul everything to the mother ship down the hill. This large truck is parked in the field at the first corner of the gravel road coming up to the house.
We are ready to be done, but still have a ways to go. Home phone is now disconnected so please use my cell number to contact us as Deb's new number is in the 208 area code. Also, the MSN email is no more, so use my work address or my Gmail account to contact us. Until we are back in internet action I'll be using the blackberry to post to the Blog. So no photos for awhile.

Today, July 3rd Deb and I fly to Boise for a walk through of the new house and the signing of the house papers. We actually don't close until Friday July 7th, but since we need to be back in Washington with the movers, this is the only day we could pull it off. Don't think that this means the house will be done today! The builders will be working up until the very last minute. The carpet does not go in until Wednesday and they will still be doing final touches on Friday.
Tuesday, July 4th we will make a trip to the dump with any junk we don't need and then I start disassembling the racking in the garage. The movers will transport the racking with out complaints, but they won't un-screw it from the walls, same goes for the cabinets. Also, all things like mowers, edgers, roto-tillers, any thing with fuel have to be drained of gas for the movers to take them.
Wednesday, July 5th the fun really begins! The movers show up... And the first thing they will want is the refrigerator, washer and dryer. So, we have to put all of the perishables into a large cooler filled with dry ice for the next 6 days, and then we can reload it once we get to Boise.
Thursday & Friday, July 6th & 7th packing and more packing by the moving company.
Saturday, July 8th we do a final clean up of the house, hand over the keys, and hit the road. Deb will haul the ATV's with her Jeep and I will haul the Waverunner with the Wrangler. We will drive the rest of the day to arrive at the new house that night.
Sunday, July 9th we plan on hanging out in the new house and thinking about where the furniture will go once it arrives on Monday.
Well, that is it for now, we'll keep you posted.
