A few sheetrock pics

Here are a few current pictures for those who have asked. It is hard to tell what is what, but here goes!

The mudders have been here all week and are doing a great job making all the walls look pretty! Texture Monday, maybe. Then we wait a day or two for texture to dry, then we PAINT! Heading into the home stretch, with just over 30days until HiLine finishes up.

We are still waiting on a concrete bid. Septic install next week, which means Tim will spend his weekend digging dirt and removing fencing.

Today, I am picking up our dishwasher and microwave for installment on July 9th.

Drywall and texture

The drywall crew was...ummmm...
interesting! They finished hanging last week and the mud and texture crew have been busy this week. They should finish up today or tomorrow. And then we paint the interior. 
The exterior has one coat and 2/3 of a second coat (in large part, thanks to Tim!). As soon as Tim is healed up (PRK surgery) and the rain lets up, we will finish the second coat, trim and touch ups.

Septic installation should start next week.

Closer still!

So, we had a bit of a lull, but we are up and running now! We had to wait on a couple inspections (and some corrections), as well as, preparations to get the permanent power turned on.

The siding crew finished up last week. They left a bit to be desired when it came to the trim, but I am hoping the paint will cover the defects! The concrete crew also came back to pour the garage. It looks great!

Over the past week or so, we chose our exterior color (Behr Amazon Stone) and started painting, finished up our flooring choices (almost!), and did a little clean-up.  
My very appreciated paint crew! (Thanks, mom, too!)

The insulation crew also came and went last week, finishing the entire interior (except the blow-in insulation that will go in after sheetrock)-in one day! The house is SO quiet now. Love it!

Pacific Power arrived this morning and our permanent power is on. An inspection of the insulation is supposed to happen today and then sheetrock later this week. Things are definitely happening!  Todd sent me a schedule with an estimated completion date of July 31! (I am getting excited!)
