First visit to the site.

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

It's hard to stay away after seeing it the first time.  Couldn't believe the windows were already in and the roof was shingled.

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Framing and most wiring and lots of other stuff done.  We met our first new neighbor today.  Seems like a real nice guy.

Mom and Don met us at the house.  Exterior trim is up around windows.  Drywall is done.  We were a bit worried after seeing "moonlit moss" colored siding in the garage.  A quick call to the builder straightened out that issue as someone delivered the wrong color.

Deck is finished. Drywall mudded. Moonlit Moss siding is still in the garage, but at least it's not on the side of the house.

Not much has changed since the previous visit, but the Moonlit Moss siding has been replaced with Midnight Surf. Much better! It's much more blue than it would appear in the photo.

Most of the siding is up. Stonework looks to be finished on front of house. Inside, the doors are in (except for the fancy pantry door which probably won't arrive anytime soon). Trim is up around windows and on walls. Bench is in place.

Most (if not all) of the painting is done.  Cabinets have arrived but we were unsuccessful in trying to peek inside the boxes.  Exterior of house looks to be finished.

The cabinets were all in on Saturday night but we didn't have the camera.  All of the flooring is done now except for carpet.  Garage door is in place.  Wondering where the cable outlet went in the front bedroom.  Did they drywall over it?  We swear there was one in that room before and there are supposed to be cable outlets in each bedroom plus the great room.

Bathrooms are suddenly almost done.  We have our first appliance!  Check out the interesting note for the electricians.  As you might guess by looking at the recent progress, our realtor informed us that the house should be completed several weeks early--around June 7-10th!

Tiles have been grouted.   Nothing else too terribly exciting to report (or photograph).

Let there be lights!   Also, someone seems to have located the cable outlet in the front bedroom which was covered up with drywall.  I actually took a photo of it but it wasn't very interesting so I deleted it.

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Carpet and other flooring is done. Also, we finally have an air conditioner. We were afraid they had forgotten about it.

Friday, May 28, 2010

We now have closet organizers, mirrors, a refrigerator, a range, a microwave, and even the extra outlet we requested for the chest freezer downstairs.

Long time with nothing interesting to photograph. But Steph's long-awaited fancy pantry door has finally arrived. Also, meet Kermit, our new friend who we set free from the garage.
