It's been awhile...

Sorry it's been so long since my last update, but not much had been happening at the house. We didn't have any work done for about a week and a half due to some wind and rain headed our way from the hurricanes, but we finally have some blog-worthy news to report! This afternoon we had our first walk-through and frame review and got to meet our builder for the first time.

We finally have all of our brick and siding up, as well as the soffet, gutters, and the Tudor beams above the garage. The window above the garage is not the correct one, but ours is on back-order so they put this in as a filler for now. Also, the shutters, beams, and doors are not painted the final color yet which will match the trim... the dark brown. The third and last pictures of the siding are more accurate at showing the true color, it's like a taupe color. The one showing the siding next to the brick looks lighter than it really is, so look at the others for the true color.

All the insulation is in, the electrical, cable, and phone lines are ran, the plumbing is in place... it's starting to come together. After the city inspector comes out tomorrow, they will start on the sheet rock. We're now tentatively set to close on October 31st! Since the current interior pictures aren't too exciting (just showing boards and insulation) and I'm sure I'll have more pictures to follow soon once we get the sheet rock up, I'm only going to show the exterior updates from today! Expect some more interior shots this next Sunday!
