  3. Hey Maria-a few things...first I LOVE when you post because you are just ahead of us and I know exactly what should be coming next (did I say that already??:). Second, your electricians look like they're having an amazing time! LOL I can't wait to see all your brick complete-I love the color.

    1. Thanks! I like the grayish color also, but my PM said that's just the primer. They will be painted black soon.

  5. Hmm I wonder if the insulated garage door is an option. I don't remember seeing it.

    1. I don't remember seeing it as an option either. It was standard when we moved into our current RH. The one on our new house seems so flimsy compared to our current one. I am worried about the kids putting dents in it with the basketball.

    2. It's not a standard option. We added it along with insulating and Sheetrock on all walls of the garage. Ask your PM for the name of the company who installs the garage doors and get them to come back and add the insulated panels. They snap right in.

  7. Hi Maria,

    Glad that your back and everything is coming together nicely and quickly. We are about a week ahead of you all in building our Avalon and the kitchen cabinets are supposed to go in this week. I'm so excited.

    I noticed that you chose to add the extra window is the morning room, great choice. I'm disappointed that I didn't do the same, they really do add a lot more light. However, my other half reminded me that there was already over 25 windows in the house. (-:

    Which brick did you choose?

  8. Wow, cabinets already? The windows were a must, because we have windows in our current RH morning room. They were included in the price 10 years ago! I'm going to need help cleaning 25+ windows!!! We chose Monticello as our brick color.

  9. The windows will have to go on the list of things that I overlooked. Oh well, I was so excited about the kitchen and having a morning room that I probably overlooked more than the windows- time will tell.

    The insulation, dry wall, sanding, mudding and painting took about a week, or it may have been less the way that everything is moving along. The kitchen and tile work s/b next. I'm dying to see my kitchen, the cabinets (butterscotch) especially.

  12. It looks like you had quite a busy week! Any updates on the house and the plumbing system? I think it is important for home builders to put some time and effort on the plumbing system when they construct a house. Aside from the aesthetic side, putting some thought on the wirings and piping can be helpful, especially when the house is all done.

  13. Were they able to fix the broken sprinkler pipe? They must fix this issue right away because your floor is almost flooded. That can cause damage to your floor if you leave it wet for long. Also, it can be dangerous for the worker. I’ve seen your latest post about this house and I’m pretty surprised how beautiful it is.
