Drum roll...... porch and walls!

We decided to make a last minute trip to our house tonight to see how things were going. We saw what we wanted to see! Not only do we have a front porch railing and pillars, we also have walls upstairs!

  • Grading and site preparation
  • Foundation construction
  • Framing 
  • Installation of windows and doors
  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Rough Electrical
  • Rough Plumbing
  • Rough HVAC
  • Insulation
  • Drywall (in progress)
  • Texturing
  • Trim
  • Painting 

  • Finish electrical
  • Bathroom and kitchen counters and cabinets (The cabinets have been ordered!!)
  • Finish plumbing
  • Carpet and flooring
  • Finish HVAC
  • Hookup to water main, or well drilling
  • Hookup to sewer or installation of a septic system
  • Final walk - through

  • Now we just have to wait for the bottom floor to be finished then we have a nail inspection. Once the nail inspection passes, they can begin to spackle and texture. During this time the exterior will also be painted. They do not paint the outside until all of the drywall nails are in place on the inside because it can loosen the caulk on the exterior, ultimately cracking the paint. These next two weeks there is going to be some drastic progress! Yippee!
