30 day countdown.

Today marks the one month countdown until closing and moving in to our sweet, new house! And, it is truly starting to look like a house and coming together so nicely! It is nice to see all the things we picked in the design studio starting to come to life in the actual house! I took some photos of our impromptu trip yesterday, with my husband's iPhone, because we didn't really plan on going down there! I am so glad we did though because they did SO much in one day! These guys are good...

Here is the current checklist:

  • Grading and site preparation 
  • Foundation construction
  • Framing
  • Installation of windows and doors
  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Rough Electrical
  • Rough Plumbing
  • Rough HVAC
  • Insulation
  • Drywall
  • Texturing
  • Trim (in progress)
  • Tile
  • Painting 
  • Finish electrical
  • Bathroom and kitchen cabinets
  • Counter installation (ordered)
  • Finish plumbing
  • Wood floor installation
  • Carpet installation
  • Finish HVAC
  • Hookup to water main, or well drilling
  • Hookup to sewer or installation of a septic system
  • Final walk - through (October 14, 2013)

  • We have a mantel!! 

    French doors on what will be the playroom! Those will be glass but they are covered for now so they can paint them! 

    Stairs leading out to the garage. These were almost the death of Berto and Luke! 

    Window sills!

    8 foot Santa Fe doors (pantry)

    Closet tracks


    Getting ready to pour our driveway and front steps!

    The next time we will be going up there is Friday so hopefully we see some more drastic changes. Tile maybe? Stain the banister and put the white spindles in? 

    On a plus note, Aiden loved playing in the mound of dirt!

    And I just got the confirmation call that our couches are ready and will be delivered the day after closing!
