House update - week 4

It's been 4 weeks since the foundation has been poured and we are moving right along. This week they textured the walls, started putting stone on fireplace, installed garage doors,drilled the well, installed septic and started to tile the floors. Everything looks darker wet and without grout so I'm eager to see once those are dried/finished!

Next week the trim will begin and hopefully cabinets at the end if the week. They will also pour the drive way and start grading the yard!

Seems are house is coming along at lightening speed! They start tape and bedding today-got all the seems finished and then will work on covering the screws tomorrow. It's really coming together nicely. The stone & brick are done except for outside fireplace.

I'm very ready to be back in my own house--we have been out of our house for 4 months on April 27th! Oy!!

The walls go up

Yesterday they finished the stone on our house and just have the back porch fireplace to complete. They also started the sheet rock. They had all the boys rooms, 1/2 the game room and were working on the living room and the bathrooms. They should complete sheet rock today and start to tape and bed tomorrow. I am beyond excited and feel truly blessed that we get to call this our home!

He huffed and he puffed

But he couldn't blow this house down ;) we have brick! They started to brick on Wednesday and they've been working around the clock everyday! We are very thankful for the work they've been doing, it doesn't look easy. The brick is so beautiful, never thought I'd be in love with brick but I am!

We've run into a slight snag on our stone :( it's been on order for over 2 weeks and its still
In Arkansas! For whatever reason they can't get a driver to bring it down. So we are off tomorrow to meet with our builder and hunt down some new stone--we need it ASAP! We are also going to the granite place to pick out our slab--so cool to be doing this!

They also started spraying the foam insulation today, they will scrap the excess tomorrow and then should be ready to sheetrock Wednesday or Thursday.

We got the tile picked out, carpet picked(I think), doors ordered and beautiful cabinets are in production. So thankful that our talented brother-in-law is handling those, they are going to look amazing!

Can't wait to see what transforms on the next week!
