I also wanted to say, thank you for your sweet comments on my last post. I really hope I love my home and I'm sure I will, but this process is really tough and it continues to be trying!
This side is completely finished
Almost done with the front
Just a little left
When we got home I was drooling over the look of the front when I noticed something just wasn't right. Sure enough, there isn't supposed to be shakes on the entire section above the garage (picture below). It is supposed to be vertical board (like underneath the porch and beside the front door)
It's a huge bummer because I bet that took a lot of time and I know this material isn't cheap; but we have it in writing from our rep. that above the garage is vertical board as well as the top two gables. shakes are only supposed to be in the left top gable. I don't mind the shakes, but we are doing a two tone paint with the vertical board and it won't look right without the vertical board above the garage.
I've emailed our rep. to bring it to her attention; however I still haven't heard back from her from last week's hardwood in the foyer issue; so we'll see where this goes.
The interior looked great, there were a few spots they didn't get to but for the most part, the first coat is done. They also put up all the corner pieces, I wonder how they get those covered because they are so chunky and thick! There were tons of bees and bugs in the rooms...I guess because the windows are being left open; kinda gross. Two of our tubs were filled to the brim with water, I guess the workers use that to mix their material?

They still need to install the 2 windows, and now fix the siding on the front of the garage. I am still waiting on a response about the foyer hardwood. Let's see what this Monday-Wednesday brings us...we'll head back up Wednesday afternoon!
