Our Pre-Drywall Peek!

During our pre-drywall meeting, we tried to captures pictures of every wall and ceiling for later reference. I have plans of putting in more outlets and adding some additional network ports, so having an idea what might be in the way should come in very handy.....

Hey, Look! A Roof!

You know we're lacking effort when, after spending 30 minutes exploring inside our new house (with our PM and his assistant, per the contract) we only emerged with one picture. And its of the outside. We're failing.
Thankfully our PM came to the rescue with his weekly update!
 The view from the great room into the morning room (on the left) and the kitchen and pantry (on the right). The island is still a little long but it will be fixed. (It's still an improvement - when it came in from the factory, it was framed as a nine foot wall....)

OMG! We Have a House!

We have a HOUSE!!!!

Yes, it's impossible to contain our excitement! Framing started this week and just look at the progress they've made in a WEEK! It's amazing to see just how quickly they are able to assemble the pieces!
 From the front...
And the view from the back....

We Have Wood!

After work today I rushed out to out hole only to find that all of the framing fairies were there first! All of the lumber for the house was delivered! And there is A LOT of it! According to our super-duper PM, the basement is plumbed, the foundation is back filled and they might start framing NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!

Every Home Needs a Good Foundation

Well, it appears that despite the sickness that infested our home this week, construction on the new house was in full swing! We now have stuff in our hole, specifically our foundation walls! Backfilling and basement plumbing will probably happen this week - that's some exciting stuff!
