Week 6 - Drywall is Up and Next Week's Schedule

I made it back last night from my trip and got to see lots of fun updates at the house today!  We walked around outside and saw that lots of dirt had been moved around to get ready for the water, sewer, gas, power lines - not sure which ones exactly are going where. 
Exterior updates, Clockwise from top left: Big pile of dirt and a pipe in the driveway; big hole in the front yard for water/gas/electric?; lots of flags marking all of the lines going in the yard; sidewalk is poured along with the porch! 
Inside, all of the drywall has been placed and they were busy working on taping and mudding throughout the upstairs. 
Interior updates, Clockwise from top left: looking at the stairs from the formal living room; view of the family room from the kitchen; view of the kitchen/morning room (with a loner mudder/taper); view from the front door  

Cool diamondback drywall for the bathrooms
The most exciting thing to see was the big machines digging for all of the lines.  Our PM confirmed that the power company has been out this week (hooray) and will be running the lines through next week.  They are going to also run the power directly to our house and we will have power by the end of next week (WHAT!?!?!?)!!!

These guys were burying the lines - power lines I think? 
Our schedule for next week is as follows:
  • Drywall mudding and taping now - Tuesday
  • Trim work, cabinets, doors and baseboards will all start going in on Wednesday
  • Power will be on by the end of the week!

Love turning the corner and seeing our beautiful home!

Not much exterior changes this week!


  1. Looks great! I love the Rome. So roomy and spacious! You're in the homestretch now :-)

  2. Wow! You wouldn't think having power was so exciting but it is something else to finally go to your home and turn on lights! Everything is looking great so far, I really love the colors of the exterior too!

    1. Thank you! I know I can't believe we are so close to getting power!!!

  3. Your home is really coming together! I am a huge fan of a nice tub to soak, enjoy a glass of tea (or wine depending on the day...hahah) and just relax! Can you tell one of my fav parts of your home is the bathroom? LOL Seriously, everything is looking well!!!

    1. I can't wait to take a bath in that nice soaker tub! I've never been a big bath tub person but now that I will have a nice one thatay change!!!
