Finally, after five long months, our house seems to be on an unstoppable productivity kick. We got footings, then the foundation, then the frame, then the roof, then the walls, then the windows, then the green wrap and now the shingles, all back to back to back, if not almost simultaneously. After months of hearing "is your house, like, ever gonna be built?" and "I feel really bad for you that they're like, not building your house, ever" and "when's it gonna be done? 2015?" we're finally getting a few "wow - it's really coming along"s! Yay! In fact, my blogging has barely been able to keep up with it all.
With all that being said, we've been cautioned by the builder that things are about to stall... for awhile. His exact words were something like "things will be happening, you just won't be able to notice." Whatever. Eye roll. Building a house from the ground up is kinda noticeable. That might be code for they're planning on taking a vacation. Who knows, but we're mentally preparing to lose our long awaited and hard earned spot in the fast lane.
The construction schedule says that after shingles we should get our plumbing, electrical and HVAC next, along with the three inspections they require. I guess that is kinda boring and unnoticeable. Ugh. But as soon as that's done, we're supposed to get drywall! My mom is on standby for that very special day, because that's when (in my book) we can start measuring for (and she can start sewing) our curtains! Now that's not boring!
Long story short, I'll keep you updated on the boring stuff, but keep your fingers crossed that the fun stuff (i.e. drywall) will happen sooner rather than later!
Here are some pictures taken from several nights over the last week or so:
On Monday we got green wrap, doors and windows!
