We were thrilled to have heat in our house when we visited yesterday. Until now, we have really had to be quick looking at the house because it was just too cold to be in there long. The kids would complain, we would look around for 10 minutes and then hop back in the car because they were miserable after a bit. But yesterday, we had plenty of time to look around. It was a balmy 65 degrees indoors, and the kids played while we looked around.
There was more progress. Stove/oven is in. Hardwood and carpet was in everywhere. The railings were stained. Light fixtures were in and electricity was on. Water was on. Footers were dug for our porch but they were full of water. Exterior lighting was in, driveway was poured, front porch was complete and railings were up. Interestingly enough, our house was not locked yet.
Things that still need to be done: shower door installed, shower rod in kids bathroom, knobs on doors. Some circuits were still being worked on, supports for the granite countertop still need to go in, deck needs to be built, cabinets need finishing work, microwave needs to be installed.
We have 2 weeks and a day until closing, but I'm confident it will all get done. Still dealing with some last minute issues with NVR. They have been pretty good to work with, but at this point, they are asking for a bunch of things we have already sent. Hope everything works out and we close on time.
And now for some pictures...
Bonus room with carpet!
