After a week....

Somehow we haven't been to our house since last Wednesday! And I was one of those who stalked the construction site. I think I got over all the anxiety, excitement and restlessness.

We had a meeting with our PM today morning (we have fallen into this ritual of weekly walkthrus with our PM:-) ) and saw lot of changes....
  • Trim (baseboards, columns, crown, door casings etc etc) almost done.
  • We have tile in masterbath, guest bath and powder room floor (all covered up - I was itching to take a peek, but I was good)
  • Metal balusters are installed and all covered up for paint.
  • And lot of changes on the outside - we have drive way and lead walk poured.

We walk around with our PM he answered some questions we had and told us about things that will be happening next:
  • Side walked will be poured today
  • They plan to start final coat of paint today, which may take about 3 days
  • Monday they'll work on trimming out electrical, plumbing, etc...
  • They plan to do the first clean-up to prepare for flooring after paint
  • Hardwood may arrive next Tuesday (it may take 2 days)
  • Carpet many come in on Wednesday
  • Plumbers were working the bathroom, getting ready for tile in shower and tub
  • Tile in shower and around tub in the master has been delayed a little bit, it may go in a day or two (I'm not sure)
  • The missing kitchen cabinet has been ordered. Glass door cabinet has been order for butlers pantry (this is not a standard, but we were promised one so they decided to order one for us! )
  We also marked the deck and stairs placing today with our PM. So overall, there's a lot going on and I'm unable to keep up with it!:-) We are very happy that our PM is confident that we are in a good shape  for closing on September 6th! YAY!!!
