We are a week and a half away!  YIPEE!!  I have to say, we are so impresses with our PM.  Every issue, big or small, he is on in immediately.

BIG:  My husband stopped by the house yesterday and found a pool of water on the floor of the mater closet - he texted our PM who immediately called him back, explained how to turn off the water to the house, and called the plummer who was over first thing this morning.  (Still waiting to here what was going on...)

SMALL:  I wanted the rods in our bedroom closets hung higher than normal so that we could hang a second rod below for more storage.  When we stopped by this weekend, they were hung at the standard height.  A quick text to our PM asking what was up - and within a few hours, the closet people were on the phone with me asking to explain what I wanted so they could redo them this week!

In fun news, I think we picked out or color scheme!  We are going to have a lot of the house painted immediately by a family member who is a painter..  and being sure to save paint for touchups.  They say "wait a year"... but I am SO not a white-wall person!

Finally some pictures!

less than three weeks until we close!

brick: Sugar Creek Maple / siding: Stone Mountain Clay

White spindle banister at bottom and top of steps (not stained yet)

 "Dining Room" - that will actually be a living room/office for us...  (with our linen closet door, haha)

 Family Room - with our our "study" doorway flipped - the door is worng, but the correct one is in the garage waiting to be installed.  They forgot to order the correct glass panel door with the hinges flipped since we flipped the location.

 Kitchen - Cherry Bordeaux cabinets with crown molding / Butter Rum counter tops.  Apparently we got an extra 3" of overhang on our ledge into the morning room because of some plumbing issue.

Morning Room - with the pile-o-crud cleared in the back yard!

Mud Room / Garage Door... I may ask them to leave that sign up! haha

Master shower - color is off a bit - Tile: Fidenza FD02 / Listello: SA545/8

Double vanity is taller than our double vanity in the hall bath, which I found odd... but maybe that's normal?

If anyone wants a picture of anything in particular just let me know!  We have electricity now, so pictures in the evenings will be much easier :)

Long time no blog!

Hey everyone!  Sorry for the complete disappearance act... things have gotten busy, and with the time change - our picture taking moments have been sparse!  Here is an exterior picture from this past weekend:

Elevation B, Brick: Sugar Creek, Siding: Stone Mountain Clay, Shutters: Black

Inside we have our hard surface floors (wood, ceramic, and vinyl), cabinets, and they are starting the trim.  We are going over this weekend during good daylight hours so I hope to get some interior shots!

NVR so far, has veen a dream - we just sent them all the paper work for our closing - and have that scheduled for December 27th!  THREE more weeks!!!!

We have had only minor issues with the building process and they have all been quickly resolved...

• The brush area outside of our morning was cleared, we just showed up for a visit and it wsa gone!  Score!

• Our linen closet in the upstairs laundry room was dry-walled over... they had it fixed in a day

• A heating vent in one of the bedrooms seems to be covered - they are checking that out today, I'll update you - but question - are your heating vents on the ceiling or in the floor?

Thanks for all the comments checking up on us - this process is flying by, and Ill update Monday with interior pictures! :)
