Making Progress

I am amazed by how much has happened in a week.  This time last week we had a foundation.  Today we have our entire shell complete:

A couple other views:

So yesterday they hung the front door.  Today it was off.  Weird.  I'm not sure how I feel about it.  It's not something we chose and its different than any door in the neighborhood.  I just don't know that I like the rectangular window at the top (its a bit hard to see).  I don't know that there's much we can do about it.

Also, yesterday we didn't have a next door neighbor.  Today we do!

Since I wrote about it a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd give an update on the food.  I ended up taking donuts with me when I went yesterday morning.  The man I gave them to was very grateful, but it was only his first day on the job!  He was a plumber and it was just him and one other guy.  He said he'd share with the guys working next door since they're the ones that built it.   I hope he did.  I think I'll do it again next week before I go back to work.

My husband spoke to our PM today.  We are going to meet with him Monday to go over some electrical specifications.  AND our pre-drywall meeting is set for the next Monday, Jan. 3.  It's going so fast now!


  1. That's so exciting!

  2. Nice pics, everything looks good, I too was surprised when I saw my front door last week we have the same door I think I like the idea of not having the same door as everyone else.

  3. Thanks. Tasha, if you have the same one they must have just changed the design on them. While I'm not sure I love it, it will be fine.

  4. It goes so quickly! Looking great. The door might just be a temporary one as well. I know we didn't get our door until the house was about finished. Since the workers are going in and out with lots of stuff that could harm a door I think that's what they do. I'd ask your PM about it- that's what we did.
