Starting to Feel Like a Home!

We stopped by the house today and it's really starting to come together and feel like our home!

12 days left until we sign!  Our PM is starting to mark things for the punch out guy to go through and start working on fixing/completing some items.  We really like the colors, selections and upgrades that we made and how it all comes together.

Updates:
  • Siding and Stone front completed today
  • Granite installed 
  • Power is now on at the house
  • Plumbing is almost completed and will be finished at the beginning of next week
  • Trim carpenters in the process of finishing up
  • Carpet to be installed next Monday/Tuesday
  • Gutters will be installed in the middle of next week
  • Grading of the yard is scheduled for next Thursday.  Will need to be touched up in the spring but our PM will definitely be handling the areas around the foundation and the big ruts in the yard

2 Weeks and Counting

Two weeks left until we have our final walk through and sign our paperwork!

We visited our house today and there's been a lot of progress that has been made but there's a lot more that needs to be completed over the next two weeks.  Not sure how it's all going to get done but our PM has assured us that things are on schedule and it will be completed on time!

  • Some of the updates from our last visit:
    • Most of our trim has been installed
    • HVAC is installed
    • Drywall being finished
    • Banisters are in and are being stained
    • Stone Fireplace is installed
    • Bathroom cabinets installed
    • Master Bathroom Tile Installed
    • Fixtures and shelving are being installed
    • Electrical being installed
    • Siding has started
Granite will be installed tomorrow and our siding and front stone exterior should be done by Friday.

We had a concern about the grading of our yard, since there have been large puddles of water.  Our PM has advised that they will be grading next week and filling in the areas around our house where the ground has settled so that water doesn't pool around the foundation.  Something we'll be keeping an eye on.
