colors of the wind

so thanks to Jeff's wonderful PSD file, i was able to make a rendition of what our house will look like!

looks nice!

You've got your problems (I've got mine)

so we went out this weekend -
looks like they are almost through with the sheathing!
52 days from today (fingers crossed) we will be closing...
as long as they fix these issues:

we noticed they had framed and were about to install the illusive SOUTH WINDOW on Jeff's house, but we also noticed that the framing is actually below the bottom of the front windows, so the windows are not along the same "line" if you will.
not sure yet if this is the final stage for this window, but we asked just in case.

we also asked for an extra window down by the front door, which they did not frame out. actually, they already sheathed over the spot.
and they have yet to figure out the angled wall on the back of the carport - this detail is really important to us.

we still havn't seen them fix the closet/laundry room issue in our downstairs, but to be sure it is understood what we want, i took pictures of 5313 SH just in case...

see how nice that soffit looks?
love it.

all in all a good weekend to go out.
the wind was blowing, and all though it was super hot, in the shade we didn't mind!
Heather's house is really moving too - she actually is getting the plastic wrap treatment, and they have delivered her windows. she also has her front stairs up too.
Jeff's house too is looking good - they finally took out that wall downstairs to make the larger living room, and like i said earlier, they were installing windows on sunday.

can't wait friends and neighbors!

decisions, decisions

so these are the refrigerators that match our appliances.

julie gave me the contact info of the company that is selling the appliances to agave, and apparently if we buy our fridge (one of these) from them we will get the builder's price... sounds good to us!

we went out to take pictures of the re-bar, but low and behold, they had put up formwork for our concrete walls.

notice no door - the back door in our version of the swisher is below grade... that's why we get a catwalk from our front door to the back yard.

and they have already started framing the casa bella that is going up next door... if anyone knows who our neighbor is ... pass them along!

i guess the next step is to meet everyone at opals on the 13th!
see you there!
