overall progress - May 19
It’s looking like a home now, huh?! The landscaping was done a couple of weeks ago. The gas line finally got installed, along with the gas meter. Sod was just put down yesterday, and the permanent mailbox post was set in concrete. You will also notice that the windows have been cleaned of the manufacturer’s labeling too. In fact, the whole place was cleaned last week. Punch list items are receiving attention this week. The last coat of polyurethane was put on the wood floors yesterday, hence the blue tape across the front door, LOL. The termite treatment posting is on a garage door. A county inspector visited earlier this week and is coming back tomorrow. It’s a happening kind of place right now with Builder Mike getting the final tasks accomplished.
wood corbel detail
One detail that you will notice is that wood corbels are now up in the eaves and also on the front porch pillars. It’s not easy putting up these big hunks of wood! A little boom extension buggy was required, with two carpenters in the boom bucket. Touches like these, along with the wood shutters, really give the exterior a craftsman’s style cottage flair.
While we were checking on progress last night, our new next door neighbors came over to chat. And they gave us this lovely pot of flowers to welcome us to our new home. Isn’t that the sweetest?!
We have had a very busy week, getting utilities set up, making address change notifications, and packing up once again. Next week is our move! And then there will be about a month of unpacking, LOL. I will share more pictures in due time. As I noted in my previous post, blogging will not be a priority for a while. But I will post when I can or need a welcomed diversion from working! Hahaha!
I will be posting a couple of pictures in the photo challenge this Saturday. Be patient for me to moderate comments, however. We’re going to be a bit preoccupied this whole weekend.
Thank you for all of your good wishes!
