The Culmination

Many friends have expressed an interest in seeing our new home. Our reply is usually something like "well, feel free to drop by anytime to see it." Only a few have taken us at our word.

To remedy this, we decided to host a "free beer" party yesterday. Thanks to everybody who came. It was a fun time for all, and the culmination of a long and rewarding process for Lisa and I.

At the risk of talking into the wind, here ends the blog. If there is popular demand, we may keep it up as we continue to add details to the house. What do you say?

Anyone who is interested in a Latitude 38 house should feel free to contact me. We have a lot of good things to say about their team.

We're in!

We moved in last Saturday, Oct 31, just in time for Gray to go trick-or-treating. Almost two weeks later, the house is starting to feel like home. We hope to get some professional photos posted here in the next few weeks. Cheers to Latitude 38 for being the first construction company to ever finish one month ahead of schedule.

Where we be living

Where in the world are the Ryans living? Among cow pastures south of Charlottesville. After we move out of The Breedings basement on Oct 20, we move straight into the house. We close on our old townhouse on Thursday. Busy times.

Lighting project

Lisa and I decided to do something different. We wanted lighting for the satirwell that wasn't something off the shelf. We bought 10 cords, 5 for the two recepticles on the staiwell. We bunched the cords, twisting and coiling them so that the lights would stagger while hanging from the ceiling. The electrician will be installing them tomorrow. More pics to come.

The first two photos: Lisa and I playing tug-of-war to unkink a cord. The third photo: we walked over to MAS (a local tapas bar) for inspiration.
