Stopped by and they had put in the Sod in the front and side yards.  The back had been seeded and strawed but with all the wind today there wasn't much straw left.

Next week is going to be crazy.

The microwave, dishwasher and stove have been delivered.  The microwave is actually already installed.  Also have a couple of pictures from the basement now that we have lights down there and pictures can be taken.

Several big visual changes. Driveway was built, including the 17 foot extension. The garage was also completed with the door, rails, and final steps built. Carpet was put in throughout the house. There are no really good images of the carpet as it is all covered with a protective plastic.

On Wednesday they were digging the trenches for the irrigation system, and had finished all the electrical connections in the house. All the switches and plugs were working.

Survived the Storm

Stopped by this afternoon and there didn't seem to be any damage from Hurricane Irene.  They have put in the rebar for the garage floor so that should be poured on Monday.  They have also added the water heater and a lot of the plumbing fixtures. We also finally have some pictures of the granite they put in middle of the week.

Sidewalk and Deck

Stopped by after work and found they had poured the sidewalk out front and put in the deck in back.  We had asked for them to put the stairs on the deck right next to the sliding door but they put them more in the middle.  After seeing it though I think I like were they put them as now we can put a grill in between the stairs and the sliding door.  On the inside they had put in the vinyl and put on the, maybe, final coat of paint.

We also found out that our final walk through has been scheduled for September 20th and will close on either the 21st or 22nd.  Now we just have to get our mortgage rate locked in and we should be good to go.

We now have the cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms.  They put in the cabinet that's supposed to go over the refrigerator to low but that is simple enough to fix.  They have also power lines from the box on the side of the house over to beside the driveway.  Added a few pictures but unfortunately it's too dark to get many good ones.

Mudding and Taping commenced

Looks like they are about half way through the mudding process and they actually arrived to continue as I was leaving the house.  Also finally took a picture of the front of the house now that we have shutters.
