Concentrating on the positives......for the most part ;-)

We drive by the house pretty much every day, as it is just 15 mins always from where we live. It can be a good thing and a bad thing based on what you see..... I guess most of you will agree with that....

So until we hear from our SR (hopefully sometime tomorrow morning) about the master bath, we decide to concentrate on the progress! It's amazing how you see something new every time....

From yesterday evening to today evening, this is what's done.....
  1. We got the garage door! YAY!!! But couldn't get a picture of it yet.
  2. We got the stairs from garage to the mud room
  3. Interactive rough-ins (Ethernet and cable)
  4. Sprinkler system rough-ins were done
  5. We got the Front door
As much as we wanna avoid focusing on negatives, there are few things we couldn't help but notice. Somehow I'm not terribly upset about any of these things, partly because I know they'll fix it and partly because I'm way too upset about my master bath. Nothing beats that! ;-)

So here it goes....
  1. There's still a window missing, in one of the bedrooms upstairs.
  2. One of the frame/beam (I don't know if that's the correct word) was kinda set at an angle! Not sure if it's even a problem.
  3. Roof's still not done! The highest part of the roof is still open. And of course, it was raining today! 
  4. And the worst part, hubby spotted some mold on one of the frames. Our PM had mentioned that it's possible to find some mold after the rain and all, but they will fix it. We did email our SR and PM about it, just so they know.....
It's was raining and was kinda getting darker today evening, so couldn't get any good pictures.... But I will post some soon.....


  1. Yes do your best to spot any mold now before drywall goes up they have to replace any moldy wood and give it a mold treatment. Hopefully they will get the roof on today so there wont be any more leaks.

    1. Yeah, I know that it could be a nightmare if its not treated right. Our PM kept saying in the pre-construction meeting that they would have to treat it anyway or they will not pass the inspection. We also want to bring in our own inspector at some point, just to be safe.

  2. I am just hoping that since they build houses in the rain all the time that it can't be too much of an issue. We are having a private inspector just to have a fresh set of eyes. Hopefully it all works out.

  3. Yay for your progress!! Tomorrow will be here before you know it and you will have answers about the master bath - keep your head up!!

  4. I like your approach. I had to do that too prior to construction. I was sooo burnt out from the wait, I had forgotten why I started on this journey to begin with. Once I recounted all the good things, I quickly re-centered myself and was ready to endure. I would tell myself, "In the end, this is for my family and we will all be better off for it."

  5. it's stressful until you get the roof but after that, there won't be any weather delays. you are almost there!
