We are in our last month of production here. The top floor has finished being painted and we finished sanding and prepping all the drywall downstairs for paint. New floating vanities were installed over the weekend and we're about to start tiling the bathrooms. Can't wait for these finishing touches.

The project is about two weeks behind but the extra time has been well spent. Floors and cabinets are in. Waiting on the appliances and the granite before we stage and go to market!

The neighbors love the new siding! Everyone stops by to check in. :) The team is flying through the drywall and we'll be painting before you know it. Eastern Propane has installed new gas lines outside to compliment our 2 propane HVAC systems.

House is looking awesome! We are weather tight! Windows and sliding glass door are in. Roof has been replaced, and the new siding is being finished this weekend. Plumbing, framing, electrical and insulation were all inspected and good to go. How do you like the new awning going up?!

The house threw us a curveball this week. We were spot fixing siding on the back when we noticed we had a carpenter ant problem. We also had a main water return line broke... All in the same day. That's ok! It's all fixed and the slab in the front yard is ready for us to build our awning on and we stole a closet from another bedroom for the suite. This house is starting to come together.

Demo is pretty much all done 5 dumpsters later. We had the electrician and plumbers getting started at the end of the week. The master suite bathroom will need a ton of plumbing! Photos next week should look cool!  We’re planning on moving the laundry at the top of the stairs which should help with resale. No one likes to hike their laundry up from the kitchen or basement!

We are officially ordering our 4th 30 yard dumpster tomorrow

This week was tough due to the weather. We had SNOW! But we made the best we could with the situation. The tradesmen made great progress this week and are expected to have their inspections by 4/12. We just have to wait for the HVAC team to finish next week so we can start hanging sheetrock. The master bathroom was framed and it’s huge! Our masonry team is working over the weekend to lay a new concrete walk-way. Once that cures, we will build a new awning for the front of the house and then the siding and windows will be installed. Curb appeal here we come!

Full house today! All the tradesmen are here! Temp electric and water are going back in! Snow isn't
