Day 79 - Lights are ON!

Lots happening again today and yesterday.  Still a couple of cabinets to hang and a couple of places of trim to finish.  They apparently ran out of material again. But... lots did get done... Trim and doors were all painted today.




lights are on in the basement and it is BRIGHT!



Getting ready to pour driveway and sidewalk this week!

Alarm system is in... smoke detectors beep nonstop.. I don't know how the workers listen to it beep all day long!


Motion detector is in too!


Cabinets almost done... still a few to hang. They did measure for granite today and it will be installed next Wednesday.

Light on in the dining room!

Stairwell is stained! Looks great!

Basement stairwell is stained...missing a piece to install it though. Trim guys are coming back next week to finish.


Prewire for the projector is in!

Speakers are in!

Lots of connections here... hope we can figure all of this out!

Speakers in the ceiling in the basement.

Handrail for the basement stairs.

Electrical box in, hooked up, and labeled.

So.. what's next? The final rows of siding that had to go in after the stone will be done this week. Driveway this week.  Hardwood goes in Friday and carpet next week! We are still missing a light in the half bath.. so we still have to ask about that.  We've seen some things that need fixed, but not major things.

Also, we did lock. We went with NVR. As we got closer to being within 30 days the LO was very good about running numbers for me and sending me rates. We locked at 4.75, put 15% down and are buying out PMI up front. Not the greatest rate, but to be honest I'm tired of worrying about it. 

The other Vic Falls down the street from us closed today and looks great!  Things are getting closer!!

  4. Love the stain on the stairs, so rich and dark. Glad you got the rate locked and are happy with it.

  5. Love the color of the stain on the staircase. Your house is HUGE!
    We locked our the same rate 60 days ago....and since then rates have gone up. So I think its a good rate! :-)
