6 Days Left

Only 6 days left until we close!

We stopped by the house today, our PM has been nice enough to leave the doors unlocked when we ask so we can stop by and get in after work.  We got to see our carpet and hardwood floors and it was exciting to see everything installed.  Our appliances have also been installed and a lot of finishing work is still being done.  Found a few nail pops already in the living room on the TV wall, however really no other issues in the rest of the house.

We also received a call from our PM today that when Guardian came to wire our rear speakers in our basement, they accidentally made the cut outs in the drywall for rear speakers, when we only ordered the rear speaker pre-wires.  Instead of re-dry walling to correct this, our PM was able to work with Guardian to provide rear speakers for us! Only thing that we're a little disappointed with are the location of the speakers.   They aren't exactly evenly placed on the wall, we probably should have done a better job at looking at the locations of these when they did the wiring.  But it's something we can live with and the free speakers were a bonus.

They were able to do a rough grade of the yard today, PM advised they will be coming back out in the spring to have this touched up as well as to have our exterior painting done.  Hoping that the grading does not become an issue and will be something we are looking at closely.

  1. We are building our RH and I'm torn with carpet in the family room. Do you have a picture showing the transition from kitchen to family room? Many thanks!

    1. Hi, yes, we will get a photo of the transition from kitchen to family room up shortly. We also thought about doing hardwood throughout, however preferred having soft carpet in the family room. We also like how it breaks the rooms up but keeps the feeling open from kitchen to family room.
