Home Sweet Home!!

Welcome to our new home!

With a lot of help from some very special friends, we are all moved in and "functional". I dare not call it settled yet.

It is beautiful. Special kudos to Jeff and the team for building such a wonderful home for us and to all fo you for keeping us sane during the process.

Here's some photos for you. I hope you will all come visit soon!

Breakfast Room & Kitchen. Yes, this is the table that has been in storage for 13 years!!!

Our family room with my new red sofas! Still needs a little work.

Dining room I've been waiting for!!!!

We're still under water restrictions. So, they've seeded and put down straw. Once restrictions are lifted we'll get sod and landscaping.

Come see us soon! I can't wait to decorate for Christmas.

So, once again Jeff has had his crews hard at work. Monday we got insulation. Yesterday they hung dry wall throughout the entire house and today was tape and mud day...
not to mention driveway and part of the sidedwalk were poured.

It's really amazing how quickly things move.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments and e-mails. We are so excited we have each of you to share the fasinating experience with.

A Magic Paintbrush Came By

The siding contractor worked hard all day on Friday - now we have color!
It's amazing how much character was added to the house in a few hours time.
Apparently they weren't used to the extra windows on the garage, so those didn't get shutters yet, but they will come.

Other good news: the house passed the framing inspection with flying colors by "B___Buster Bob," one of the toughest inspectors.

This weekend they took a break on our house to work on a couple of others that close next week. Next week the insulation & drywall go up, and maybe we'll get sidewalks & a driveway!

Wire, Wire Everywhere!

Jeff's had all the subcontractors hard at work. The entire house has been wired, plumbing is done and even the surround sound wiring is in.

The tallest sheetrock we've ever seen has been delivered. They use 12' pieces of sheetrock so there will be less seams for smoother ceilings.

Final framing inspection is today. Then, after a few minor tweaks, we'll be rocking and rolling again.

Siding and shutters are also going on today. Next week should bring insulation and sheetrock and then we'll really have the feeling of individual rooms.

Wow! Only 5 weeks until closing!!!

A Giant Spider Has Invaded Our Home!!!!! least that's what it looks like in the attic. The HVAC systems have been installed and the duct work looks like long black spider legs. Ron will be so happy that he can stay nice and cool.

The bath tubs and shower were also installed. Plumbing, gas and electrial will be finishing up today.

The shingles on the roof should also be finished today before the rain comes.

Drywall is next week.

I can't say enough how exciting this is!
