Framing is complete!

We had our second meeting with Guardian yesterday at the house.  I was excited for this meeting, but i was more excited to get to walk inside the house!  It's amazing that it was framed so quickly.  It's so nice to be able to see where it sits on our lot, our actual yard size, etc.  The meeting went well, but was harder than i expected.  For one, our home is a mirror image of the model home we saw, so it is different in my head than i've been thinking!  We had to decide where we wanted the TV/Data connections in each room.  We had no problems in any room other than the living room and we very much disagreed on this.  I'm still on the fence about if we made the right decision. 

After my husband took off to his baseball game, his dad stopped by to take a look around.  He had alot of insight about different things and noticed some things that we never even thought of!  For instance, he likes how much attic space we have...i never noticed.  Since my dad is blind from his Leukemia & diabetes, his dad is my closest contact for "dad things" Total i got to spend about an hour at the house yesterday, so i'm excited!

Last night we got a TERRIBLE storm that left us stranded in the baseball locker room to avoid a tornado!  Unfortunately this has torn some of the stuff off the outside of the house.  I'm stressed over the fact that it was raining inside my house, although i'm sure it happens all the time!

Friday i got a call from our PM for our weekly update...He said the windows would be installed Friday or Saturday (which they were) plumbing & roofing would be next week.  We will also have our pre-drywall meeting next week also.  I'm excited about this because we need a close date to give our landlords!  Our lease is up May 31st, and they've estimated that to also be our close date, but we have to let them know for sure!

Below are some pictures from yesterday!

  1. Yikes on the storm! I would be a little bit upset too knowing that it was rained on inside of your house but I can imagine that it does happen from time to time to other houses. The framing looks great I cannot wait to see more pictures of the house when it is all complete I bet it is going to be gorgeous.

  2. I'm glad you guys are ok!! SHEW!! I can't imagine being held up in a locker room to avoid a tornado!! CRAZY!

    Sorry it rained in you house, but I'm sure it happens a lot.

    I love the pics!! Can't wait to see more!!

  3. I think it rained before the permanent roof went up. It's bound to happen. Framing looks really good. Congrats.

  4. Looking good! It will go so fast now!
