Day 142: Landscaping, Railings, Deck, Light Fixtures, POWER!

We might be going to the house every day this week because so much is getting done! We had to go at lunch today b/c we had forgotten those 2 down rods for the girls fans and we had to purchase another garage fluorescent. Originally we were going to go tomorrow but the electricians needed it all today. When we got there we realized we didn't need both down-rods and we have to buy 2 angle fan kits now and take them back in the morning. ahhh!
We left in such a hurry I only had my phone to take pics...They are kicking some serious butt getting stuff done. My countdown is still set to the latest day we should get the keys which is next Tuesday, Christmas Eve. We are really hoping they give them to us this Friday. It's still up in the air. We will be getting a walk through and our SR told us as soon as our superintendent gives her the go ahead she will call us.
 Terrible quality pics, I know!
A picture showing the power being hooked up and some of the landscaping

I am super in love with these "Frost Free Gardenias"
Past them will be holly bushes

This guy will be building the entire screened in porch by himself, crazy! I was watching him
hoist this piece of lumber up and it was insane. Apparently he's learned all the tricks to do it by himself.

I couldn't get a straight on shot because there was a car in the way and
the dumpster was still there. If you look closely you can see our crepe myrtle hanging out
in the front yard, waiting on the electric company to move. It will be to the right of the house.
The crepe myrtle will have white blooms to match the gardenias <3
