Pre-Drywall Walkthrough - CHECK!

We did our pre-drywall walkthrough on Tuesday afternoon.  It only took about a half an hour.  Nothing major, just finalizing locations for cables, extra outlets, recessed lighting, etc.  Most of this we had already decided on so it was basically just confirming the locations with the PM.

We've had quite a bit of rain lately here and they have been trying to schedule our roof to get put on, but the rain keeps holding things up!  So when we walked through the home, you'll notice some water all over the place.  Hoping this doesn't affect the integrity of the build??

It was so amazing to actually walk through OUR home and see all of our ideas beginning to come to light.  Cannot wait to start seeing the finishings put into place!

We are supposed to have our home inspection next Thursday or Friday, but need to confirm that timeframe with our PM tomorrow.  HVAC, plumbing, electrical and cable should be going in this week and the early part of next week!

OMG, It's a house!!!

Our SR just sent me a actually looks like a house now!  Can't wait to drive by this weekend!!!

Long Time, No Blog

I've come to realize that I'm really not good at keeping up with this blogging thing!  A lot of progress has been made since my last pictures even with all the rain we've been having here.  Most of the framing is complete and they have been trying to get our roof put on for the past few days and the rain keeps interrupting.  Hopefully our SR will be sending me an updated pic with a roof on today!  If not, we plan to stop by tomorrow morning.

Our pre-drywall meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday at 12:00pm.  It will be nice to actually walk into house and start to feel things coming together.

We met one of our neighbors last weekend who also built a Rome.  It was nice to finally see it in the reverse layout and with the Morning Room.  The model that we've seen here didn't have either of those and it was hard to picture.  Seeing their home just made us fall even more in love with ours!

Oh and we have a settlement date scheduled!!!  Provided there are no major delays we will be closing on our house on August 14th at 10:00am!!  I guess I can add one of those countdowns to my site now :-)

Here are a few pictures of the framing that were taken last Saturday

Quick Update

Just a quick update...we got an email the other day that our lumber was delivered over the weekend and they are going to begin framing this week, woohoo!  Maybe now things will start to feel more real since the progress will be easier to see!

Also, I took a pic of a house in the neighborhood that has the same Elevation E.  The stone wasn't added yet when I took this pic and the dumpster is blocking some of the view, but you can get the general idea.

Hopefully next time I will have some more, exciting pictures!
