Here are a few quick house updates from yesterday and today. Every time we go up we’re anxious to see when they will start the rock and the sidewalk and driveway. It hasn’t been warm enough to pour concrete and it’s been too windy to finish the rock. They attempted to start but it was way too dangerous.

It was so windy today the scaffolding fell over. Luckily noone got hurt and the front window didn’t get damaged.
What’s on the schedule?
So we’ve been under the impression, we’d get to move in Thursday April 21st. There are a few things we’re behind on but here is the tentative schedule through end of next week:
Friday April 1: Electrical trim, lighting, baseboard trim, start of the fireplace and bookcase
Monday April 4: Wainscoting in dining room and stairs, countertop installation, kitchen tile backsplash, plumbing, painting doors and trim
Tuesday April 5: Wainscoting in dining room and stairs, countertop installation, kitchen tile backsplash, plumbing, painting doors and trim
Wednesday April 6: Wainscoting, bench, plumbing, painting doors and trim
Thursday April 7: Wainscoting, bench, plumbing, painting doors and trim
Friday April 8: Wainscoting, bench, carpet installation, plumbing, painting doors and trim
Somewhere next week we’re hoping they finish the rock on the front of the house. The wind has been so brutal for the workers to be on the scaffolding which I don’t blame them for not being on there. We’re also wondering when the concrete will be poured for the driveway, walkway, and sidewalk? The concrete guy is super behind on his other projects because of the wind and the cooler weather, but it finally started warming up. The other big thing we’re missing is the components to the deck. It is missing the actual composite decking, the handrails, and the stain to the soffits. We haven’t chosen the stain color for the front door or the Andersen door. We’re also supposed to order the master bathroom glass doors and mirrors. There is quite a bit going on next week, we’ll definitely be going every day to check things out and the progress of everything.
