Here’s what the house looks like today:
One garage door is on, the roof is done (or at least, work has been done on it), the fireplace insert is in, and the plumbing is done.
Here’s a peek inside:
And here’s the tile we picked out for the fireplace hearth:
It’s next to the carpet that will go in the living room, which looks super brown in this photo. It should look more of a cream color once it’s in.
One of the notes I wrote down from perusing the Houzz message boards was to ask our field manager about construction workers smoking on the site. (I don’t think anyone has been smoking on our site, but a lot of people reported this problem when they were building their homes.) We were glad to hear today that the builders have a strong no-smoking policy that they readily enforce, so that’s one thing we shouldn’t have to worry about.
We have our predrywall walkthrough meeting at the end of next week. We’ll be taking lots of photos so we have a record of the electric wires, studs, etc. behind the drywall. So, lots of photos to come! In the meantime, I’m planning to make another visit on Tuesday. Hopefully the next pictures will have some sun in them!
