Appliances and landscaping. These seem to be the only two things I'm missing. The house looks fantastic! I absolutely love it. Which is good, since I'll absolutely be paying for it. :) My LO has been very proactive in gathering these last few docs that are needed to ensure closing happens on time. There is still blue tape everywhere, but I know they will take care of those things. I do see a few things that I'd like corrected, but that's what the walk through is for. Can't wait!!

Took the camera back down to the house today to get a shot of the front with the painted door. Also, I really like the outside light fixtures. I think they are pretty.
Still waiting on the appliances for the kitchen. Of course, not much has changed from yesterday. Just looks like they've fixed some drywall issues and done some more paint touch ups.
|Kitchen waiting on appliaces! And a fixed cabinet door.|
|Foyer transition to the dining room, and carpet color for the rest of the house (only the family room is different) I'm pretty satisfied with it - not too light, not too dark.|
I have a feeling these last few weeks are going to feel like forever!!! :)

I stopped by the house and forgot my camera!!! Ugh. But what I saw made me very happy. First thing I noticed was that my front door has been painted black. I think the front of the house looks really good. My neighbor was outside, and she informed me that my sod will be laid next week. Whoooo Hooooo!
Also, I finally saw the granite counter tops, and I think they look perfect. And....all the carpet is in. LOVE the family room carpet with the wood floor. Now if I could only get that 'final' approval from NVR, all would be right in my world.
I did take a few pics with the phone I had with me. Not the greatest. I definitely will try to head back tomorrow and take more pics!

Things seem to be moving right along. I have electricity, along with lights, and the air conditioning was humming. Felt great inside the house, on ALL floors. Yay! While I was there, the sidewalk was being poured on the side of the house, and the driveway is done. The crew was also doing some grading for the yard. Still no counter tops, but I'm sure they are coming.

Progress is occurring, even though it's not really super fun stuff - like those counter tops I'm dying to see!! But I love progress...anyway it comes. My countdown is under 30 days, and I'm soooo ready to move. (being ready to pack is a whole 'notha story!)

I went to the house on Saturday morning to meet with the Home Depot blind installer so he could measure all the windows. Imagine my surprise when I found a half naked man in my bathroom, installing the tile. Exciting! (not the naked part, the tile part!). I really didn't want to get in his way, so I already purposed that I'd come back to check out the tile work. So after church today, I went to see and take pictures of the progress. All the latest pics below :)
|They've finally moved the dumpster, so I could get a good pic of the whole house. Just need the door painted.|

Things seem to be progressing nicely. I'm happy to be approaching the 30 day mark! I spent this past weekend with my very best friend scoping out how much blinds are gonna set me back. It wasn't pretty....blinds are EXPENSIVE. And plantation shutters....my girlfriend looks at me and says, "Ok, so you can either go on a cruise, or get plantation shutters". Yeah, I'll take cruise for $100 Alex. Sheesh. Anywho...on to some pics!!
|Can't wait to see these with granite and floors!!|
|Windowsills and baseboards|
|A couple of places look like this...these need some work!|
|Baby Girl's bathroom vanity|
|Looks like paint is up next...I like the Kilim Beige better, but Cool Platinum will do for now|

|Close up of La Cava brick, Almond trim, Silver Mist siding and Wine shutters|
(booooo for the dumpster being in the way...couldn't get a good shot of the whole house - maybe next time!)
All the siding is completely done! I'm happy with how it all turned out. Not looking much different on the inside - the mudding/taping process is ongoing. Can't wait for cabinets! :)
