Winter House Update

So I haven’t really had a house update since we planted our grass in the fall and I would say that’s because there’s really not a whole lot to say. It’s winter and there’s really not a lot going on right now house wise because of the season. There are…


First Warranty Issues

In the fall of last year we had our first warranty issue. Two issues actually. We had a couple of the spindles on our railing across our 2nd story that had become loose at the top where they hooked into the post. The other issue was the door to our…


Day 105-Ceiling Texture

So I haven’t posted much this week and it’s not that nothing has been happening at the house, it’s that what is happening at the house is barely visible.  All of this week they have been doing drywall mudding and taping.  It’s not a sexy job, but a quality one…

Homeschool Room: Sunroom: Master Bathroom: Kitchen: Craftroom: Powder Room: Laundry: They were still working on our master bedroom when we left and the garage hadn’t been done yet either.  We assumed they would have some work…


Days 93-95, Progress

On Monday, Day 93, the gutters and downspouts were installed.  We have what they call Greek Returns on our house and we are loving the look of gutters with that architectural detail.  They look so much nicer than the gutters at our old house since you really don’t see the…


A Long Week

So last week was a long week where not much got done for one reason or another.  On Monday, Day 86, Richard went by to find a long line of trucks in the driveway.  We had inspections that needed signed off on before we could proceed with drywall and there…
