Primed 'n Pretty (sorta)

 House got primed (I believe).  I know the color we chose is close to this so we dont know if they prime first or if this is our actual color.  LOL  Yes, we're newbies.

 Heres the Dinette, kitchen to the right and family room to the left.

 My daughters room...that she has already claimed.

 Hallway from laundry room down to master bedroom.

LOVE my entryway and huge dining room!   :)

House gets a facial :)

They added the stucco to the house the other day...can't wait to see it finished!

Can't wait till she gets painted!  She looks dark and scary like this.

Locking in...

Did anyone sign anything when you locked in your intrest rate?  or was it just a verbal thing?

Back home with a nice surprise...

My mom was down from Boston to visit and we (mom, myself and my mini minions) took a roadtrip down to Hollywood to visit my Aunt (moms sis).  She just had a double mastectomy due to cancer, so we wanted to help my poor uncle out.  She did great and is back to her husband-nagging self.  ;-)

Anyway...when I got home I was welcomed with a wonderful surprise (beside my DH)...  DRYWALL!!  YAY!!!

Part of the back yard with lil Miss running amuck!

Front entry way.  Closet in front, stairs behind it, study/5th bed to left and dining room to the right

Family room and slider to back

Dining room

Full down bath (bigger than I thought :-)
Study/5th Bedroom

Part of the master bath.  2nd walk in closet is just beyond tub.

A question for those who have made it past framing...

I noticed they posted our floor plan, electrical plan and our options on our sliding glass door.  My questions is (and seems quite dumb) what is posted the order sheet?  Or better yet exactly whats going into the house as far as options and flooring and such?  Would they post an outdated sheet? 

I know this sounds very dumb, but we have a discrepancy on what is posted as far as our options and Im wondering if they just didn't get our last change order in on time.

So im basiclly wondering if what is posted, is exactly what is going into the house...

Had pre-drywall meeting today.  Was rather uneventfull, which is good.  Only have a small change in the master bath as to where we are putting the cable rough in.  They installed the tub the opposite way as to how we wanted it so we had to move the TV to the other side of the room.  No biggie.

Lots of bussy little bee's there today...Guardian, HVAC, electic...the gang was all there!

I didn't take any pictures because I forgot my camera.  Ill take some later tonight.  We are going back up tonight to have some adult beverages with our new neighbors!

New (correct) windows are in...almost

The correct windows have been installed YAY!!!
  My only concern, is the one window that is missing on the right.
It was missing with the old windows and I figured when the new ones came in it would be fixed,  but its still missing, which kinda strikes me as odd. Im sure its fine, but its just strange its the same one that is missing.

They were zipping about so I didn't go in but took some more outside pics...

Heres a pic of the old windows.  I like the new ones much better!  Adds a little more character.

Pre-Drywall set! Forgot pictures because I was busy yacking it up with new neighbors!

SO our pre-drywall meeting is set for next Thursday!  So excited!   When they say the time goes fast after groiund break they MEAN it!!  It has been super fast! 

We now have doors, windows, tubs, shingles!  We were so busy shooting the (you know what) with our new neighbors last night, we totaly forgot to take pictures!  Then when I phone died.  LOL

On a sour note...our intended renter for our townhouse dropped out  :(  She decided to move out of back to square one!
