Tons of Progress

Yes, yes, I know it has been a while since I last posted an update but there really wasn't much to update on.  Or at least that was what I thought until we walked through the house yesterday. MY OH MY! What a difference a week and a half makes.  We hadn't been to the house in over a week and a half because they started locking both the front door and the garage door.  Therefore, it was impossible for us to get in there to see anything.  So we made an appt with our PM to walk through yesterday.  I could not believe how much progress they made.  Here is a short list of what they have accomplished:

  • Walls painted with one coat of primer and one coat of paint (Apparently they will be doing another one after the drywall guys come back to fix any spots.)
  • Door frames, molding, and trim installed.
  • All doors painted and some installed.
  • Kitchen cabinets installed.
  • Vinyl flooring installed in bathrooms and kitchen. 
  • The carpet was going in yesterday as we were walking through.  They were finished up the master bedroom and closet when we were there, everything else was done. 
  • The railing was up and had its first coat of stain.  They still need to do one more and polyurithane (sp?)
  • Bathrooms were complete - cabinets, countertops, toilets, mirrors, and light fixtures
  • Light fixtures were installed throughout the house and the power was on! We have light!
  • They poured our front stoop and put one coat of paint on the front door.
I think that was it...I took a few pictures yesterday that I will post later when I get home.  Supposedly there is a cleaning lady coming today to do a first clean of the house, so they can see where they need to make repairs.  It is so exciting that we are so close, yet so far.  The house will be done March 29th, but we don't close until April 22nd due to our current lease situation. :( I am so anxious to get in there and start setting up our home. :) It won't be too long from now though!

  1. That sucks to have to wait to close.

  2. It looks great but that I'm not sure I could wait to move in :(

  3. It looks great! I love the kitchen cabinets. I'm so glad you got the double sink. That's my one big regret so far.
