Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.


Today is move-in day to our remodeled house. The final trim installation and a the last few doors should be done sometime this afternoon. It's hard to believe it's almost done. It's been a long journey since construction started in March. There were a few interesting times along the way, like the garage demolition and basement wall falling off. It's tough to mention it, but it wouldn't be right to talk about this finished house without taking a moment to remember Bob the Builder. He would be smiling from ear to ear if he was here today.

It's been 7 months since we moved into our current house. After living in sub-1000 sq. ft. houses for the last 15 months, it'll be nice to get some space again. Total square footage on new house? Somewhere around 2500 square feet! Here's a comparison between old and new (click to zoom in):

Congratulations Matt! the new one looks larger than the old, but, I think the old one is prettier.

Congrats! Matt thumbs up for your new house
did you do any automation to your home yet? saludos from Bolivia.

Thanks guys.

Javanese - I haven't added any automation yet for 2 reasons. 1) I was a little discouraged by resent responses to the idea and 2) my Dad is a smart cookie when it comes to hardware and I'll probably wait until Thanksgiving when he visits. It'd probably be a fun project to do together. Then if we screw things up - I won't be the only one to blame. ;-)

I think I am going to buy a new desk today. This one I'm looking at (in previous link) is much smaller than my old one, but I think it's time to go smaller and lightweight - just like Java. ;-)

Here is a $40 off $200 coupon at OMAX if you buy one there. Not sure if the desk costs that much. KCD1BMP6YHMKJLFBC
