Tonight will be the night that Amanda Kloots and son, Elvis, of the late Nick Cordero, will sleep her first night in the her she and Nick had built, so Amanda today posted the family of 3 soon after they bought the home before renovating it.
Amanda thought this first day of fully living in her new home would be a terrifying moment, but so far it’s been extremely comforting, Amanda thrived on that moment before you perform on Broadway, but you just do it and it’s up from there.

This is us, the day we got our keys to our first home before we started renovations. I remember taking this picture, documenting the “before” so we could show the progress each month. Nick bought us this house. He found the listing, insisted on going to the open house and did all the work to get the mortgage. He knew we needed a home and I’m so grateful, especially now, for his foresight. ⠀ We move into our new home today and I thought I’d be terrified but it’s oddly been comforting. Isn’t that funny how the things you get yourself so worried about emotionally sometimes aren’t that bad in the end? I think this is because I know this was Nicks dream and today Elvis and I are bringing that dream to life. And in the words of my favorite Broadway director, Susan Stroman, “Do it full out with great conviction!” ⠀ This house couldn’t have happened without @lacordero64 @canyonhaus @beachwood_builders @michellegersoninteriors @mollyetuttle @zachbraff @mkmoeski @wfklk601 and Todd Kloots – THANK YOU! ⠀
Amanda also took time to reflect on last October as Amanda collaged photos of Nick and his family together, being happy for little things, shrines, and Halloween.
Amanda also feels Nick’s presences in the new house as she spends her first day today living in the home, as well as marching as a single parent raising Elvis.
