House Building Update (May 9th-10th)

I wanted to wait a couple of weeks to start back my house building updates...
Things are moving very quickly and they are really backing up so I decided to go on a post them.

A LOT has been going on the past few days!
Monday, the cabinet man came to sketch where the cabinets will be, discuss some options for shelving in the closet, discuss color options, etc. 
The HVAC men were also there to discuss vent locations and to see what kind of work they have in store for them.
The windows arrived Monday as well and they had a couple installed when I got home.
The electrical work got started on Sunday.
Plumbing is almost complete. I think the water lines have to be ran, not positive about that.
We also ordered our gas lanterns this past Saturday night, so they should be arriving sometime this week. It was a spur of the moment purchase!:)

 Tuesday, we had an appointment to select our appliances. 
I thought it was going to be difficult, but it was actually the easiest thing yet.
We chose our gas cook top, our hood (which will be built in b/c I want my cabinet man to custom build something), dishwasher, electric stove, microwave, and refrigerator. They all ended up being the same brand, which is Kitchen Aide. I am very excited about that. I also picked out a washer and dryer we may purchase at a later time. :)
The roof man also came yesterday to scout things out...
It seems that EVERY person that comes along says this is the hardest house they have ever worked on (including the roof man)!
It takes a lot of discussion, changes, and decisions on this one!
Leave it to me to choose the most difficult house!!

The framers are still working but mostly just minor things left to complete. 

On our way home, Uncle Lynn called and told me there was a surprise waiting on me and he deserved a hug!
I came home to my front door!
After all the worry it all worked out and it is EXACTLY what I had in mind.
This picture does it no justice what so ever but it is beautiful!

A lot of the progress on the home is not visible with pictures. 
But things are going QUICKLY!
Everything hit us at once this week but it's been stressful fun! :)

On our TO-DO list:
-measurements of appliances for cabinet man
-pick out a mop sink
-have a vanity in mind if needed
-finalize all plumbing fixtures
(my mind can't think of the rest right now)
