Day 21 - The WOW factor!! (Friday)

What an awesome week it has been!!!  I am so impressed with our PM and his team!  I love their work ethics.  The men would work until 7 pm and prepped the house for the next day to give them a running start.  It was a challenge keeping up with those guys. 

We had our scheduled meeting with our PM to discuss HVAC stuff--nothing fancy, mostly for clarity!  When we pulled up to the house we had a nice surprise.  Our mentors from our church were doing a random drive by!!  We were so excited to see them and they were excited to see each other.  All of them are cheesing!  I have to admit this was a very special moment!  Awww......

As of 8:30 am this morning, the following was completed, windows installed with flashing, garage and front porch installed, shingles in place, gas installed, framing for front door, door is installed and lots of interior framing done on the inside.

WOW!  Look at this view from the morning room!!

Another view from the Living Room Window!  WOW!
Just Beautiful!

View from the Dining Room Window!!  WOW!!!

Fireplace framing!!  WOW!!

The Steps are Installed!!  WOW!!!

Another View of the Morning Room!!  WOW!!!

Our PM making some adjustments for HVAC installation in the kitchen!

The Basement Double Patio Door hasn't arrived!  As you can see they have been framing out the basement because wood is everywhere.

Basement View with installed windows looking towards the pond!!  WOW!

The meeting is over!!!  

Me and the HVAC stuff and hubby in the windows taking this shot!  WOW!!!

Some Progress--the trash is now outside!!  

The fireplace is installed!!  WOW!!!!

Love the graffiti showing LOT #28!  
We are prepped for Sandy--they locked all the windows and boarded up the other window which they will be completed on Monday depending upon the weather!

Notice the pretty white boards (trim) along the perimeter of the garage and front porch!  Our PM said we must be sure to maintain them because they have a special finishing.  Simply keep them painted to maintain there luster. Love our front porch!  WOW!

The Garage is spotless--they did a great job cleaning it up! WOW!

Gas Line is installed on this wall--look closely!  WOW!

Not sure what's going on with this vent--BUT IT IS DEFINITELY CROOKED!

They did a great job cleaning the inside of the basement, now they must get to this back pile!  Actually, this is a good time for dumpster diving!  Right Megan!!  

I think they used these guys for support during the interior installation!  WOW!!

WOW!! The front of the house is nice and clean!  All the HVAC stuff is in the garage and ready to GO!  They also plan to install the shingles and finish the dining room window on Monday!  These guys were in and out today and said they would return on Monday. I don't expect to see any movement tomorrow (Saturday); however, I will be driving by to check and see if they  show up.  From this point on, it will appear that things are slowing down because most of the interior work is scheduled for next week. What a great week!!  The house is fully framed out


  1. What an amazing week for you guys, look at all the work that's been done! It's so exciting!

  2. What a great view of that pond from your basement and morning room! I'm jealous of your water view!

  3. I hope Sandy doesn't mess things up! Though I'm not sure how much effect she's going to have on you where you are. They definitely seemed to be battening the hatches at my place today.

  4. Look at all that progress! So happy for you!!
