I didn't ask for THIS upgrade!!
My wife stopped by during her lunch break today, and took this picture. Obviously, the plumbers were in today. Also the electricians, and the stone guys were back. I stopped by after work and the stone guys were wrapping up, the electrician was gone, and the plumber was still there.
It looks like all the electric has been done, and they did unearth our hidden plug on our wall going into the family room. From the looks of it, they misjudged their initial attempt, so some drywall repair is needed. All the lights are in, up to and including the infamous "boobalier". All the plugs and switches, and our outdoor plugs and lights.
The plumber had most of his work done, except for two toilets, and the actual hooking up of the lines.
The garbage disposal was in, and our over-the-range microwave was installed. The stove and dishwasher were still in boxes in the morning room. This is probably a stupid question, but does the laminate flooring get put in before they set those, or will they go before the flooring?
We ordered an address stone, but that wasn't put in nor was there a place left out for it on the front of the house. I assume when it comes they will have to use some sort of stone cutting apparatus to cut out a place for it? Any input here would be appreciated also.
The window treatment measure will take place tomorrow, so I am looking forward to seeing what will happen. Better pictures tomorrow, the one above was a cell phone pic.
I did get a call from our loan officer tonight, and we talked about VA appraisals. I guess they can't be ordered until the home is 95% complete, and then there is about a 7-10 day wait for it to be done. So basically the call was to see if need be, could we close the first week in January. He said that he has never had one cause a closing delay, but there are 4 VA loans closing from his office at the end of the month, and he was told by his boss to call everyone and let them know what might happen. The only real problem a weeks delay would cause is with our refrigerator delivery, which can be rescheduled if need be.
So we will see.
