House wrap and non-standards

We got the windows next the fire place which are non-standard in some areas but standard in ours. I first noticed that they had not been installed when they framed that side of the house and contacted our PM who said that non-standard items do not come in the lumber package but are installed upon arrival. Which doesn't really make sense but okay I will go with it. Until I show up Wednesday to see that the house wrap has been installed and they have installed the switch box for the fireplace where one of the windows belongs.

I contacted the PM and said the same thing don't worry, I will take care of it and thanks PM you get a gold star for this one! They fixed it.  I guess it could have been worse considering one of the other houses in the community they are building the front porch roof fell off!

Window Treatments

I spent the better part of today at a Home Decor store looking for window treatments. WOW it was fun! There are so many options and the price varies so much. So here is what I am thinking. Valances in the family room, plantation shutters on the Morning room windows, Panels with roller shades in the living and Dining rooms. Opinions welcome

Fast to the Future

I got an email from guardian about the pre-wire meeting! It is on the books for next week. I drove down to the site and had a wonderful surprise waiting for me. See pictures below:) I stayed around for about an hour or so and watched them assemble part of the roof line. It is really amazing how fast and precise the framers are and on the top of the house!

I left for about 30 or 45 minutes and came back and they had already added the rest of the angles!

Men at Work

Saturday we pulled onto our street and so happy to see Men at work!!! Installing the Floor boards for the first floor. We ended up staying in the neighborhood for several hours talking to neighbors and letting our daughter play on the tot lot. 

I just had to drive back Sunday to check out the progress and they had some of the exterior walls up. They really do work fast. 

Today our awesome SR sent me a picture; from what I could tell they had all of the first floor exterior walls up and were working on the second floor joists.
