Wow! These guys are moving quick now and its hard to keep up with all the progress. The framing finished up Wednesday and the roof is up with shingles as of Friday. All the windows are in and the doors have their hardware. The HVAC was installed on Friday and my hubby was in all his glory checking it out throughout the whole house. They did cut one hole in the incorrect place in the dining room that the PM said is on the list to be fixed. We had our guardian meeting on Friday to place all our outlets and keypads, etc which lasted all of 15 minutes. Kind of disappointing that we had to rearrange our schedules for such a short amount of time, but its something else that is checked off the list. After the meeting since we were already at the house, we took a good look at all the rooms and stayed for about an hour. I think this is the point where I'm "officially" excited. It so cool to see it all coming together and to get a real sense of where I want things to go in each room. I've even started to imagine how I want to decorate the space once we get in.
While we were at the Guardian meeting we ran into our PM. He's saying we're on track to deliver at the end of October, but we will know more at the pre-drywall meeting next Monday/Tuesday. He ended up adding more guys to the framing crew to get us back on track and we didn't even know. He's starting to redeem himself :) On the list this week is for plumbing and electrical to be installed. We'll have our private inspector come out before the pre-drywall meeting so we know everything to tell the PM to fix at the pre-drywall meeting. We've also started our washer/dryer research which has been a bit confusing. I thought I knew what I wanted and would stay in our budget, but after checking out one store, the salesman told us not to get top loaders due to vibration. So, we're on to looking at front loaders, which I never wanted. It seemed as all were out of our price range, but I think we finally found a good set at another store that we will order this week and have delivered after we move in.
