Building Our House - Pre-Drywall Walkthrough


Hubby and I are spending the day together shopping for a bed for Connor (plus maybe a movie and lunch!) - so I need to get the kids ready for preschool soon. But I wanted to show you the house. It's SOOO amazing!
 
I don't think I have mentioned this before, but we have a fire sprinkler system in our new house. Apparently, it was just recently added to building codes in California for new houses. We are actually really excited about it (they are all individual - so if one goes off, it won't set any other one off...they are not smoke censored...and they are set to VERY high temperatures - so they will only go off in real fires).
 On March 15, 2013 we met our superintendent at our house for our pre-drywall walkthrough.

 They added all our insulation (below is Mr. Howard, Martin our Super, and Matt our realtor standing in the kitchen):
 This is our formal living room (that inset to the right is for a hutch or built-in. The left one is a coat closet).
 This is the upstairs playroom:

 This is our kitchen sans people:
What a difference a couple days make. We went back to the house on March 21, 2013 and they had drywalled the entire house!

They are set to stucco the outside of our house on Monday. We are having a mixture of stucco, stone, and brick on our house - so they will do the stone and brick closer to completion. 39 days until 100% completion and they are completely ON SCHEDULE. WHAT?!?

We had a painter come yesterday to give us a quote on painting all the common living space (formal living room, kitchen, family room, dining room, upstairs playroom, and hallways), so we should be getting that soon. **Please let it be within our budget...please let it be in our budget...please...!** We've already picked out our color (Sherwin Williams SW7030 Anew Gray).
Here it is in the model of the house we're building:
SW7030 Anew Gray

Our furniture won't be as cool...or expensive. BUT, don't you love the color? Oh and those are the pillars we'll have in our living room!! I do also love those curtains. If anyone knows where we can find something similar, let me know!

The next update will probably be when they tape and texture the interior walls or when they start the exterior stucco on the house. Ahhh! So exciting!
