We are set to close on June 29th barring disaster. We do not expect any surprises during inspection as my BIL already gave it his seal of approval and he has a good eye for construction problems. Pretty much the only things I expect to do immediately when we move in is paint the nursery for Benjamin (I want to re-create the nursery I had spent all the time on in Columbus that he never got to use) and maybe paint the second guest room. We really like the finished look of the rest of the house, though it will take us quite a while to reconcile it with our current furniture. (i.e. the house is very light/cottage while much of our furniture is dark woods, Asian style lamps, etc). Our first major project on the house will be putting in a fence the rest of the way around the yard, which we would hope to complete before the ground freezes for the 2012-2013 winter (mainly to avoid those COLD dog walks).
Needless to say, we are very excited. Now just cross your fingers for us that everything goes smoothly (inspection, paperwork, financing, etc).
