Oh the progress...

Oh the progress that has been made in just two short weeks! I went by the house last weekend but I didn't have Paul or the camera so I decided not to post. But since I've posted much has progressed.
On the exterior, the stone facade of the columns have been put up on the bottom half (top half still missing). Our door is now the "iron mountain" color that it is supposed to be and we have lights next to our garage door.
On the inside, there is wood-ish flooring in the foyer and powder room, as well as the sink and toilet have been installed.The carpet has been installed in the rest of the house which makes a HUGE difference. It definitely is feeling like a home in there. Although after going through all three floors Paul and I began to realize that vacuuming may become a 2 day job. They also installed the light fixture in the dining area. We're a little bit concerned about this "blue" dishwasher... we thought we ordered stainless steel ;)The countertops, kitchen flooring and cabinets have all been installed. We're still waiting on the granite for the island. We took measurements of all the appliance holes as we think of taking on the fun task of buying new appliances. In the master bathroom, both of the sinks and vanities have been installed. Paul and I aren't the best at sharing some things so we're pretty excited to have our own sinks and cabinets. Paul even noticed that there is an electrical outlet in the perfect place for my electric toothbrush (oh how I've missed you....)Down in the "man cave" it is truly looking like another room of the house and not a dingy basement. Carpet and finished walls make a huge difference. So according to the agent from the developer this week is going to be tying up loose ends in the house including getting in a driveway. We know since Paul sends her a friendly weekly email each Monday after we walk through the house with all our praises (and concerns). We also hope to meet with our mortgage guy this week to nail down some of the details of the house. In a few short weeks - we hope it will actually be ours!
