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.

Just a few pictures

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

21 Days

21 Days until we receive the keys to our house!  Time has flown by and a lot of progress has been made.  Our PM has continued to be great and the level of communication and follow up has exceeded our expectations thus far.

Over the last few weeks we've been able to get into the house after work on our own, however they recently started locking up our house and we can't get in on our own, which is probably a good thing. Today we took some time during the day to stop by and check out the progress.

Here are a few updates on what has been done over the last week and a few pictures that we took today.


  • Hardwood floors have been installed
  • Kitchen Cabinets have been installed
  • Granite will be installed next week
  • Ceramic Shower being installed today
  • Drywall and paint touch-ups to occur tomorrow, Monday, and Tuesday
  • Stone Fireplace will be installed next Tuesday
  • Electrical, HVAC, and fixtures will start to be done next week
  • Siding and stone front will be installed next Monday and Tuesday
  • Gas Meter hooked up
