Friday we toured the house and we were pleased to find the toilets, faucets, towel bars, and other fixtures had been installed. The grout in the master bath has been done. It has a nice contrast with the Truffle Field tile we selected. Down in the basement, the plumber was making all of the connections to the main water supply. The bathroom rough-in was finished up. Floor drain was put in. Water heater was installed. We now have running hot and cold water.
In the kitchen, the appliances were being installed. The gas stove, dishwasher, and garbage disposal are all in and working. They attempted to install the range hood, but the unit they had was white so they were re-ordering a black one.
Outside, the gutters were put up. They look good but we may need to relocate one of the downspouts since it will likely interfere with our future driveway expansion.
Hose spigots were also installed in our selected locations.
This week the trim carpenters are coming back to fix some issues and the painters are coming to do some touch up and to paint the baseboards, casings, and doors. There were several trim issues we are hoping are resolved. Some of which include crooked window trim, stair railings that do not line up, and a half-wall cap that looks like they used a butter knife to create the edge detail.
Hopefully all of these things will be corrected. We are nearing the end!
