Well, the finish package for both the Frechettes and the Townsends arrived last thursday and we already have the cabinets, window trim, some doors, and other finish components on the house. We had Adair reluctantly give us a credit for labor and hopefully materials for the vinyl we were going to put down in our two upstairs bathrooms and we laid down some beautiful tile and slate in the entryway. It has been a wild, crazy and hectic coupe of months but we have a date for our open house which is set for Saturday April 2nd. That means we are in in less that a month! YEAH! Anyhow…we are looking forward to seeing what the amount of this credit for the flooring should be and how the Adair people are going to treat us finishing out the process. Thus far, they have been fair, reliable, assertive, overly punctual and extremely helpful. We were going to try and do a gas water heater last minute and it was going to be a big hassle for everyone that we work with at Adair so we decided to pull back on that request but we may do it in the future but for now we are happy! Here are some pictures of whats going down! The only other thing to do is finish my floor by laying the hard wood friday and saturday! Yeah!

The initial look of our white cabinetry! So clean
Well we got done with our interior painting (for the most part) this week. This weekend I spent one night until 5 AM priming and back rolling the interior. I spent that long getting it done because I knew the following day I would have 5-10 helpers to form the most fierce paint crew anyone has ever seen this side of the Coastal Range! We got the whole interior trimmed and rolled out rather quickly. Now there are some touch ups and other things that will take about 2-3 hours but for the most part we are ready for our finish package! Yeah! We do have to do some deep cleaning and get the garage all cleared out by Tuesday which won’t be that big of a problem. Pretty much we are ready…One thing I am looking forward to is installing our hardwood downstairs. I am also thinking about putting slate in the entry and tile in the upstairs bathrooms! It will take a couple days but in the long run it is well worth it! Altogether we are extremely pleased with the whole process thus far with Adair. Josh, Gary, Jeremiah and all the ladies at Adair financial have been great. Luke and I are really excited about opportunity to have an open house block party and have the house cleaned by Adair. What a way to get in to the new house. Clean and Fresh! Pictures now:
SO it has been nearly three weeks since I last posted but here it is! In the last three weeks we have put in all our insulation and drywall, textured the walls, and we are about done with the interior painting. It should be about 1 more solid day of painting to get everything finished up. I am pretty excited that we are getting so close. On top of all this we are getting our finish package on Tuesday! We are excited. Katey picked out all the colors for the different rooms and they are wonderful (pictures to come soon!) A couple of things that we did before the drywall was put up was 1. run speaker wire throughout the house for an in-ceiling speaker system in all our downstairs rooms and 2. design and construct a fireplace mantle in the living room in a half a day before insulation and drywall. Pictures are below!
