When we moved into the new house it was still very unfinished. There were no lights or plugs hooked up so we used candles and flashlights for the first week. There was no bathroom fixtures or even a kitchen sink hooked up. The kitchen stove was not wired in so we cooked on the wood stove. We still have a long way to go but we have gotten a lot accomplished in our first month here. All in all it feels very much like home and the welcome we have received from our neighbors has been wonderful. One of our house warming gifts included a dozen fresh eggs from our neighbors hens. It feels wonderful to be home.
