Time To Catch Up

Yes, I have been very neglectful of this blog and keeping you all updated on the progress of our new house. In the past two weeks things have been moving fast over there in Rock Hill. Here is a sneak peek of our most recent progresses.

On October 26, 2012 we headed over to the house and found we had scored shingles. I love they way they look on the peaks of the house. I had a nice laugh when I realized that I chose a roof that matches the houses I make in a video game I play on my PC. (The Sims 2)

And you will notice that they also installed windows and doors.

On October 27, 2012 we were able to get into the house to take some photos. I am not sure what the green spray on the downstairs walls is for. The builder sprays about two feet high on all the 2 X 4 studs.

We also found my lovely garden tub had been installed in the master bath. I can't tell you how excited my sore little back is. I am just longing to lounge in there!!

 Upstairs we have wood walls, ceilings and floors.This lovely room of windows in the master bedroom. I can see my reading chair there already!!

She is never with us when I take photos!!!

On October 28th, there was not much "new" stuff to see. But our neighbors' houses are coming along great as well.

Halloween came along on October 31st and we found that beneath a gorgeous blue sky our home had been invaded by giant spider legs. NO really, they just installed the air conditioner and wrapped the duct work with black insulation.

Also the other tubs and showers were installed that day.

November 2, 2012, we have a drive way and a back patio. Don't ask me why there is a huge white pipe sticking out of the driveway. I am assuming it will be some sort of drainage pipe for the house.

On November 4th I was able to get a shot of the patio out back on this dreary day. They had also installed the plumbing and wired the house for electricity.

While our home will be insulated great, the builder does not insulate all the walls of the garage. So we decided to sneak over one night, with the builder's permission of course, and insulate that wall ourselves. I can tell you, DD and I were FREEZING!!!! 

gloves, goggles and a face mask keeps the fiberglass away, LOL!!

ever the goofs!!

I took the left over insulation and wrapped it around my garden tub .
 I am told that insulation will keep the bath tub water warmer longer.

We took a couple of days off while I had a doctor's appointment or two and by the time we headed back out on November 8th, the house had turned cotton candy pink and the drywall had been delivered!!
I am so proud of us. Our insulated walls look just as good as the professional's do.

So now I have finally caught you up to today. We arrived at the house and noted the drywall was up on the walls inside the house through the windows. We drove past the house, turned around on the cul-de-sac and then returned to our lot. Suddenly I realized as we approached that they started to put the siding up on the house!! Wow!! That was so unexpected!!! And I love the color even though it is hard to see here. The guys were finishing up for the day, but I will just bet the house will have all the rest of it's siding by Monday night.

we could not get upstairs to take photos today as they had a ladder on the stairwell for the workers

I am so excited that the house is coming along so quickly after it took so long to get started. We have a little over a month and a half until our scheduled closing date.

Until next time...
