House Update - Interior

This week it looks like the interior has been studded all the way, all the walls, doorways and electrical are in.  The fireplace is installed and now when you walk in it's really starting to look like a house.  They also have the garage door in which makes a big difference.  Plus it keeps a lot of the wind out of the house so it's much less cold when we're walking around.

1. Garage Door
2. Front door, looking in to the living room. Stairs to go up on the left.
3. From the corner of the kitchen, pantry on the left.  Archway from entryway on the right
4. From the kitchen looking into the living room. 
6. Stairs going up
7. Master closet - which of course I had to take a picture of because that's probably what I'm most excited about.

We had our final meeting for interior finishes this week and every little detail is picked out. Although we made a couple of last minute changes, overall everything stayed the same.

1. Laundry room tile (we got the elongated version, same colors), wall color, countertops and floor.
2. Updated master bathroom tiles I forgot last time.  White accent tile for shower, (missing the main grey subway tile), rock tile for bottom of shower, countertops, floor and wall color.

Oct 8 (Day 1) - We signed our contract and everything is official!
Oct 9 (Day 2) - Expected ground breaking - delay with permit.
Oct 14 (Day 7) - Pick out front door (similar to this), interior doors, house molding, door knobs, and decking and siding.
Oct 15 (Day 8) - Fireplace
Oct 21 (Day 14) - Faucets, sinks, shower heads, toilets.  Also garage door.
Oct 23 (Day 16) - Cabinetry for the whole house - knobs and handles
Nov 5 (Day 29) - Ground breaking - hole digging and laying some foundation.
Nov 13 (Day 37) - Outside brick
Nov 18 (Day 42) - Cabinet place again - Changed our minds of the kitchen cabinets!
Nov 19 (Day 43) - Chose lighting, sort of because that was pretty hard. Still have to finalize some choices.
Week of Nov 24 (Day 53) - Pour concrete base - framing basement - finalize light choices and custom island color, custom hood vent and misc faucets.
Week of Dec 8 (Day 68) - Finishing up the framing and starting the roof. Plywood mostly put up all around the house. It's starting to look like a house.
Week of Dec 15 (Day 75) - Framing complete and ready for siding. Roof almost finished. Electrical walk-through, still deciding on lights.  Electrical rough-in and instal of fireplace. Tubs in bathrooms.
Week of Dec 22 (Day 82) - Inspections. Insulation and drywall will be up this week. Final interior finishes picks.

We should have an insulated and dry-walled house by the first of the year which will make it nice and toasty for when we come visit.  Bummer part is now we have to start paying for heat so those contractors better be closing those doors behind them!  Next up; selling our house!  Anyone want to buy it?!
