Soffits

They finished off the soffits on the first floor today. This is the back of the master suite. There was only one section where they got a little sloppy and dented it. Builder is going to have them replace that section.

Soffits

They have now started on the second floor soffits. They just have to do around the back of the second floor and they are done.

Interior Windows

The framing guy redid the windows in the guest bedroom, making them much bigger like we wanted. He also lowered the tops to be even with the door. It looks better that way. He didn't get to putting in the openings in bedroom 4.

The windows as seen from down in the great room.

Guest Bath Door

The other guest bath door has been moved so it is even with the one they had to move for the plumbing. Looks much better than way. Now hopefully the cabinets will fit!

Electrical

Today the electricians worked on some more fixes like moving wire to make room for the interior windows. They also pulled the wire in the library and some of the outside wire.

They put in the ceiling boxes for the fans waaaaaaay up in the great room ceiling. I marked them with arrows so you can see them. I couldn't get any closer!

Electrical

This is where the electrical panel will go in the garage. We will have two 200 amp panels. There will also be a 100 amp sub panel in the basement.

Electrical

These wires go to a low-voltage transformer for outdoor ground lights. The lights will be installed by us at a later time.

Electrical

This one will be power for the monuments at the end of the driveway. There will also be a post light. Its power will probably come out of this same opening eventually.

Foyer

This picture didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. They have one of the windows in the foyer installed and the front door is in. There is a much better picture of the front door later. The arched window for the foyer is the only one we are still waiting on. Though all the other are not installed yet, they are on site.

Windows

These are the garage windows. They will be mulled together and probably be installed Monday. The Masons really want them installed so they can work more on the garage.

Brick

They fixed the soldier course in the back (marked with arrows). They look much better now. They cut all the bricks down a little so they are the same size rather two or three whole ones and an odd little sliver of a brick (see picture from previous day).

Brick

They are done with the west wall. I would have preferred that the soldier course didn't touch the top of the round windows, but not much we could do. I didn't want to cut the soldier course down short. It would look funny and not match the rest of the house. I can live with how it turned out.

Brick

They are also done with the front of the master suite. We love the way this turned out with the keystone and (fake) vent. It will look really great when the shutters are on.

Brick

They are working on the front of the main house now. Porch is done so the builder can get the concrete floor poured. Then they can put the steel columns up and lay the brick around them.

Front Door

Here is a good shot of the front door. It looks like wood but it is actually fiberglass. It will be finished to look like wood too. It will be a light walnut color.

Shingles

The shingles have all been lifted to the roof. Roofers are supposed to start on Monday.

Shingles

Lots of shingles! At some point I am going to have to calculate just how many square feet of roof we have.
