Days 113-120 Exterior & Drywall Completed & Doors/Casings installed

There wasn't too much fun stuff going on this past week, I had hoped to see paint on the walls...but nope. The exterior is all finished except for painting and stonework. The drywall is completely done and looks really great. I didn't see any places that needed to be touched up so that's a plus. They had installed all the doors and the casings around the windows. All the baseboards and trim pieces were sitting in the living room, there was a ton! I'm assuming they'll put all the trim up and baseboards up and then paint.

I asked when I needed to pick our stone out and they said "in a few weeks" That seems to be cutting our deadline of Christmas really close. We are at 29 days today. *nerve wracking* As of today we are still on track though to be in, according to our SR.

There are just a few things that are wrong:
  • Our fireplace was supposed to be wrapped with a ledge completely around the base. They have to add the framing for it still, I brought it to their attention.
  • The dining room window is still broken and needs to be replaced.
  • The electrician installed conduit in our media room, I need to make sure they cut out the drywall for the box.

Couldn't find my memory card so the pics are from my not so great I phone!

We found out there are now 5 houses that will be starting construction in the next few months! We will have neighbors on both sides of us soon. I'm excited to see what kind of house they will be building....not so excited about the construction phase.


  1. Love the double doors in the master. And the open foyer looks great! We have an open foyer as well and it's one of the best decisions we made.
    Builders seem to be taking their sweet time with the build.. But it sure looks like they are doing a great job.

  2. looking good!! the house next door to me just started...nightmare. Loud and obnoxious noise all day long but it's worse since I'm home all day!
