House – Aug. 8

The siding has been there for a week, sitting outside. They were supposed to get that up this week, but no action as of last night.  You can see in this photo that there is a house between our’s and the one that has siding.  Now that house is framed and nearly at the point where our house is at on the outside.

However, they are all ready to do the sheet rocking on the inside.


Plastic, sheet rock and supplies for sheet rocking all around the place.


The house is also fully insulated now. (under plastic)


Foam insulation is actually now under the plastic – the photo below was taken earlier – before the plastic was put up to rock over.


Areas on the floor painted to keep track of where light and fan fixtures are.


The photo above is the dining area between the sun room and kitchen island.

We are supposed to have all lever door handles throughout the house. Below is the front door.IMG_20180808_174243540_HDR.jpg

It was an upgrade to get levers, so we are paying extra for them. However, this is what we found on the garage and door to the patio….


Round doorknobs, so that will need to be corrected before closing on the house.  So far we have been trying to catch things as they go along so the punch sheet before closing won’t be quite so long.  The brown part of the door is packing to protect the door.

The house is coming along nicely – so far we are very pleased with how things are going and the attention being given to the things we ask about.

One thought on “House – Aug. 8

  • They might be temporary door knobs. They did that when they were building our house…put in temp doorknobs and then the day before closing they replaced then with the ones we wanted. If they don’t do that you end up with paint and drywall cmpd all over your doorknobs.
