Progress and Pictures!

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend. We had a blast....we went away to a cabin in woods of Daniel Boone Forest, KY with family and friends. We needed that break. No phone calls, no internet, no laptop! And it feels good to be back (relaxed) and connected once again. :-)

I took time to catch up with all my bloggers friends this morning. Its nice to know that many of you had made so much progress. Very happy for you.

I realized that with everything else... issues, communication gaps, rain, rain and rain  I have been neglecting the fun part.... Progress and Pictures! So here it is..... Brick's almost done, siding is done too, we have some gutters etc in place. Also we saw a framing inspection list of "things to be fixed", so I guess they had the first round of inspection. We also visited rite rug today to pick out the tile for our new bathroom. We did not change the previous tile we picked for the floor, we just added its counter part - wall tile for the tub surround and shower and the accent tile that goes with it. That was easy!

So here are few pictures of the finished brick.  :-)


The Back Side. They had finished siding on the Fireplace area, but I couldn't get the updated pictures after all that rain! Our backyard is a pool!


Front Elevation

We are missing the cream accent brick on the dormer window and the curved foyer window.

Siding on the dormer and other gable

They boxed in the electrical and plumbing stuff hanging out by the Garage side of the wall.
New Master Bath selection!
 We had our pre drywall meeting on June 21st. And with the added bathroom change, we may see some framing changes. So I'm getting a little anxious about the pace. I want to see some dry wall!! Hopefully it will be sometime soon. Our over all target date is pushed by 7-10 days with added changes, and they say we are still on track for that. Fingers crossed!

  8. I love the architectural detail of the gables on your home. It's very regal and just ads a lot of interest to the front of the house. Love the brick and that arched window. So nice, congratulations, can't wait to see the trim work start going in. :)

  13. This is absolutely a fabulous home. Every time we see an all brick Ryan Home we are just amazed that some communities are very fortunate to have that option. Would have absolutely done it if it was an option, even if we had to cut other stuff out. This is one of those things that one must have if offered, and seeing it in all of its majestic beauty in your home fully showcases the prestige and super-solid-built-d-quality of an all brick home. Congratulations, and love the brick color as well.
