We have drywall!

We had our pre-drywall home inspection about a week and a half ago.  Nothing too earth shattering.  The inspector said everything was really minor and he communicated it all to the PM and within a day it was all fixed!  The 2 most noteable things were there were probably 3 or 4 places that when they went to nail the exterior sheathing to the studs almost all of the nails completely missed the stud!  So if a strong wind were to come by, the outside part of the wall would have shook.  And there was a spot in the living room where they had cut a hole in the floorboard for the heat registers that must have been in the wrong location and when they went to close it up, the just stuck another piece of floor board there that was really that secure and the inspector said that over time it wouldn't have held up.  But all in all, I would say it was a good report.

And for those of you still building and wondering about the inspection, I would say 100% to do it.  If for nothing else, just to have some piece of mind that the home you are building is being built the way it should be.  We'll also have a final inspection done by our home inspector a few days before our final walk-through.

I got a call last Friday (week before July 4th) that they would start putting up drywall that next week.  We went by the house on Friday (July 5th) and all of the drywall was up and SURPRISE so was all of our siding and stone!  I was not expecting that and was very pleasantly surprised :-)

I didn't really take any pictures of the inside, but got a few of the outside...I am in love!


  1. Pleasant surprises are the best!! Thinks look great!

  2. It looks lovely. Glad it went well. We are about 10 days behind you guys. I can't believe how fast this whole thing goes.

  3. I love love love this elevation! I really wish it was available in our community.

  4. Love your porch! All the colors look great together. On our floorplan it's more of a portico even though they market it as a porch.
