24 Days and Counting...

We are officially less than a month away from closing!  We went by the house today and saw some wonderful progress.  First, when we pulled up we saw three guys working on the exterior brick in the snow!  Heading inside we noticed all of our interior lights we installed and working, they installed all the elongated toilets, and they stained the railings!  Everything looks so good, I am getting more and more anxious by the day! :)

 Here is what we saw when we pulled up!  Working in the cold and snow!

 View from our morning room through the sliding glass door

 Finished stone on the outside (Bucks County Ledgestone)

 Stain disaster!  All Ryan homes bloggers can sympathize!

 More stain disaster!

 View from the master = Winter Wonderland!

 Beautiful stained railing upstairs (Chestnut)

 Master bath lighting

 Soaking garden tub/ shower combo (I am so excited about this!)

 More stained railing!

 Stone by the front door

 Beautiful front door!

 Lighting in powder room

Elongated toilets

 Stained railing downstairs with recessed light

 Still waiting for stone (but eyeball light installed!)

 I love my kitchen!  Especially with our new recessed lights!

 Another shot...Hopefully getting some appliances and counter tops soon!

Still left to be done:
Counter tops
Hardware on cabinets
Hardware on all doors
Another coat of paint
Install shelves throughout house
Outside concrete
Outside trim painting
Install outside lamp post

24 days!!! Lots to be done!! :)

Busy Week Update #2

Just wanted to do a quick update with pictures on our busy week.  Everything the PM said would get done, did get done except the interior and exterior stone.  The stone guy had the flu this past week... boo! :(  Well, hopefully he gets to feeling better this week!  This week will be slow due to the holiday, but they are still ahead of schedule on our house anyways!  Happy holidays!  Here a few updated pictures!

Update on Our Busy Week!

Well, this week is a busy week at the house, just like the PM said it would be!  So far they have painted all the walls and ceilings, installed the hardwood and vinyl, and have prepped for interior/exterior stone.  Looking good!  I will update later this week with hopefully some pictures of stone, cabinets, and trim! :)


And that's as far as I got with my pictures...the PM showed up and we started chatting!

Prepped for stone!

Sneak peek at the hardwood!

Vinyl in mudroom/laundry room

Exterior Update

Looks like the exterior or our house is almost complete!  The sandy tan siding, canyon shake, and black shutters look really good together!  They still need to install the stone, paint the trim, and replace the front door.  It really is coming along!

I was dying to go inside, but there was a car parked outside and the garage door was open; signaling to me that someone was working inside.  I hate being in the house when there are people working because I always feel like I am in the way, so my husband (who doesn't care at all) ran in real quickly.  He said they were finishing up mudding and sanding and then rolling something on the walls.  Paint?!  Primer?!  Anyways, he said, "You don't want to go in there.  There is an extremely overweight Mexican without his shirt on!"  Haha!  I love it.  Overweight, shirtless, I don't care.  I love my Mexican workers!
