We drove by the house on Wednesday and sure enough, they had started framing the first floor. But wouldn't you know it, I left my camera at home! We ran into our project manager and he chatted with us for a bit about the progress of the house. On a side note: we love our PM! He is so friendly and is always willing to talk with us about the progress of the house. We built our last home and I can tell you our PM was not this good! Hopefully our relationship with the PM will continue to be strong throughout the rest of our build.
Anyway, one thing the PM wanted to stress to us was that he didn't want his crew working on Thanksgiving, and we totally agreed with him that everyone should get a holiday. We had no expectations for them to work on Thanksgiving. With that, he thought our house would be under roof by Monday.
We restrained ourselves from driving out there yesterday (Thanksgiving), but we couldn't resist today. When we turned into our neighborhood, my husband and I both gawked and muttered something along the lines of, "Oh my...!" Our house was practically built! Either the crew worked on Thanksgiving, or they put in some serious overtime on Tuesday! We were totally shocked and surprised by what we saw! Excited, but simply shocked!
We are hoping to stop by again sometime this weekend so that we can get a sneak peak inside! :) We are all (including the kids) getting really excited now!
