All Wrapped Up

Tomorrow is Hubby's birthday, so I took him to see his freshly wrapped birthday present. They are really flying right along, expected to have brick up on Monday, such an exciting time. Still muddy so not able to see the rear of the house yet (morning room and basement steps). Doors still in the garage but looks like most windows installed.

I Have A House

You guys were not kidding when you said things move fast once framing has started, the picture in my previous post showed the start of framing (Friday), the picture below is from yesterday (Tuesday). I am so happy, the doors and windows are all stashed in the garage. The shingles are sitting on the roof, hopefully they were put on today, as rain is expected to move in tomorrow.  Not sure what the crane is carrying, more shingles perhaps. To much activity, so I did not get out and walk around the rear to check on the morning room.  Next will come the Home :)

Framing Has Finally Begun

Been a busy week at work, was able to finally take a ride to the suburbs and visit the property.  They have finally started framing and things are coming along well. I did not mention before but, the basement steps were supposed to lead into the middle of the rec room area in the basement, kind of limiting the placement of furniture, we were able to get them to move it so that it leads into the corner of the room under the morning room, then we had them switch the door opening so that it opens towards the wall instead of toward the open space in the rec room, they agreed to do this without charge.  Here are a few snap shots of our progress.

Slow But Steady Progress

Did my usual Saturday drive to view my lot, not much visually has changed, they have added the basement floor concrete, the garage floor concrete and have added the steps from the basement to outside, paid extra for basement walk-out in lieu of the egress window. I did meet my neighbor directly across the street, they also have a Jefferson and have been there for about 10 months, they advised they have had only minor issues (nail pops, etc.) and they are thoroughly satisfied with their home.  Drove by the lot on Thursday and there was a huge white tent shape plastic covering the foundation, the tent was up to protect the basement floors from the two days worth of on and off downpours we have had.  I am sure there was unseen progress made, pipes, etc.

I also stopped by the model to chat with the SR and ended up changing my kitchen cabinets from Maple Cognac to Wyoming Cherry Bordeaux as well as changing the countertops, forgot to right down the name, was allowed to make the change without any change fees.

@ Jay and Danielle

I am having trouble commenting today, just wanted to say that I am so excited for you, they took a while to get you started but, seems like they are really flying now. Amazing that I feel your excitement through your words, so happy for you that things are progressing so nicely.

Foundation Is In

The foundation is in, waterproofing should be next.  Will talk to the PM on Monday to get the schedule for next week.  Lot's of rain today, so no long walk around the property, just a few quick pics and back in the car.
