We toured the house the other day and saw all of the sheetrock hung with 2 coats of mud on everything. The work looked pretty good so far, should like nice when it's 3rd coated and sanded. Looked out in the garage and noticed it was jam-packed full of doors, trim, cabinets, etc. The drywall work should be done in the next couple of days, WHITE paint (still upset about this) is supposed to be sprayed the beginning the week with finish carpentry starting up by the end of the week. Next weekend it should look very different in our house.
Yesterday, when I drove by the house in the morning, I was quite surprised to see portions of the roof and siding had been ripped off of the house. There was a worker on a ladder redoing the framing at the front corners of the garage roof. Apparently the Architectural department devised a plan for incorporating the cornice returns at the front edges of the roof. Thanks to my careful attention to detail, future generations of Courtland Gate builders, selecting a full front porch with gable overhangs, will now have the correct garage roof details (pats self on back) ; )
One last item is our closing date. We were originally told June 5th, then we were told anywhere from May 15th to June 15th (30 day window), and then we were told (more than once) June 19th. Well on Thursday when we met our PM at the house, it came out that June 19th was actually just the "pre-settlement" and the official closing wouldn't be until the following Monday (June 24th). Since we have sold our current home and have to be out on June 19th, that wouldn't have worked too well. After a bit of coaxing from my wife, the PM and his boss were able to change the closing date to June 19th. Definitely good news for us.
