We got up and headed out to the house yesterday morning... and we did it, we went inside (thanks DW, you were right :) Let me try to rattle off what was done since the last visit- electrical ran, Guardian ran, water and sewer trenched in and back filled, electrical, gas and cable trenched in, siding 80% completed, drywall hung (not taped and sanded yet) and the garage floor was poured. Yay! So much completed, it looks like a real house now. And my love/hate relationship with concrete is over, you will not be missed!
We only found 2 things we weren't thrilled with. The blue prints for the house were laying outside in the mud. We gathered them together and gave them to the sales rep. I don't know how many of these they have lying around, but it is supposed to rain/snow here on Sunday night and if they were ruined, well it could have slowed them down. The sales rep (not our original but the new guy at the development) made the comment that these would have been expensive to order new ones. And the rough in for the morning room... the box is nice and small how we asked for it but the rough in is not centered into the box at all. We sat and stared at it and went back and forth- we can live with this, no we can't, yes we can, no we can't.... So Nick sent the PM a quick email to ask to have that centered. Other than that, gorgeous, we love it and just amazed at the progress. Here are some pics, in no particular order, the computer is not agreeing with me today!
So we know this week consists of mudding and taping the drywall, cabinets to be delivered on Wednesday, finish the utility trenches and hopefully the correction of the morning room rough in. I'm sure much more though too. He said the finishing people will be there within 2 weeks! So flooring and such will go in before this. It really is flying by- I hope we can make it out this week to see it again.
We took a walk at Sadsbury preserve, nice little area with some easy trails then went out a little more west to Middle Creek National Wildlife area. If anyone is local, in the PA, NJ, MD, DE region and enjoy a little nature, this is worth the trip! Snow geese are migrating back north and there are about a half million of them sitting on a lake, along with thousands of trumpeter swans. It really was a cool experience, only a short walk down a paved path to get to it. Here is a pic, it doesn't do any justice really, it's all about the experience!
