Whoa talk about progress today! I fully expected to stop by today and not see anything done since yesterday but all the digging is done from what I can tell, now it looks like they will be putting in the plumbing.
Wow Mike! I am so very excited for you!!!! I'd be dropping by everyday too! Right on!
I always wondered, if I knew the house I am sitting in right now would be THE ONE! I drove by the subdivision so many times but who knew my home was being built deep within that subdivision. I just bought an inventory home, just built late last year. Didn't get to see it get built. :-( Mike, you are fully living the American Dream...history is being made right now, savor it up! :-D
We finished getting everything out of that monster landlord's house yesterday. So now we only have one place to go...home sweet home!! You will need your deed to get your mailbox keys from the post office and also to change your address in the school system. It has been such a great feeling pulling out the deed instead of a utility bill and i got to leave the field requesting the landlord's name BLANK. It was then that I truly knew I was no longer at the mercy of a landlord! That had to have been one of the best feelings in the world!
The furniture was delivered last Friday, the security system was setup Saturday, Internet was hooked up this afternoon, we picked out our two TVs and home theater system last night (will be delivered next Thursday along with satellite TV service). I just finished assembling my son's new bed. I still have to put together his headboard, night chest, and five drawer chest (this chick is going to town with the power tools!). And my makeup vanity needs to be assembled. I have 4 credit cards now. I had to apply for a Best Buy card last night because the total was $3,036!!! :-| I didn't know it would cost that much. But you have to pay the install fee for each TV mounted on the wall. My bonus hasn't come yet...about 3 more weeks and I didn't want to go without TV for that long. Mike, you are going to be doing all of this fun stuff before you know it! :-)
Wow sounds like a lot going on...very cool to finally be done and enjoying it now, can't wait for that day, I'm going to be so stressed when it's time to go back to underwriting. Heck, I'm stressed now, I check my credit every day in the morning to make sure everything is still ok.
That's quite the bil at Best Buy...what did you buy!
So I've been stopping by the lot every day, sometimes twice per day , and taking a picture whenever there is a change, all from the same place in effort to put together a little time lapse video. This is what I have so far...
Loved your home building montage! How exciting..... Who would have ever thought the excitement a hole in the ground will bring.....
Yep yep! They have done a lot recently...seems to move in spurts, took them a while from when they had the original forms up to when they started digging...then they did a bunch of diggin and put the pipes down, then a few days off and now in the last week they went from a bunch of open trenches to being ready to pour the concrete.
I'm sure once they pour it will sit for a bit while it cures...hopefully they can do it early next week as it's supposed to rain next weekend. After the foundation is done, about 20 days later they will have walls up, outside drywall and the roof on, plus interior insulation...at least that's what I've noticed on other houses (they write the date in permanent marker on the foundation when they start and two houses I snooped around today both had 02/08/13 on them).
They poured the foundation today! All the framing is already on-site as well so that should should start going up on Monday I assume.
