Pam says she can maybe try to have the third floor basically done by then, so we could live up there. But the work won't be completed until mid-October at the earliest. Alternatively, I can suck it up and do a full move into another rental (well, half-move, since half of our stuff is just in boxes in the basement), and plan to move again when the house is ready. That's probably the sensible solution, but the thought of it makes me want to cry. I don't know.
This is a rough timeline of what's to come. Keep in mind that things could go faster, if the gods are kind, stuff arrives on time, and work can be overlapped. But it could also go slower, especially with an old house which is likely to have quirks and problems.

We'd hoped to have our families come out to Chicago for Christmas this year, show off the kids and the new house. I don't know how likely that is right now. Maybe.
