Homesite Visit - Week 4

We didn't receive an update from Adam yesterday so we didn't know what to think when we visited today.  Apparently somehow we weren't on the email he sent, but I think they have that worked out now.

Anyway, guess what?!  WE HAVE A SECOND FLOOR! And they were also working today!  One of the other units even had part of their third floor up.  Cool right?

Lauren our sales rep forwarded the update email from yesterday.  Adam says that they will continue framing through next week and they hope to have the roof trusses up by the end of the week.  I suppose that means by the last week of the month we'll have a roof? I sure hope so!  How insane is that?!

Because they were still working while we were there, we didn't have the opportunity to walk around because it didn't seem safe, however I was still able to get a couple of photos of the progress.  We don't have any stairs inside which will make it hard to photos of the upper floors until those are in.

Here is what we got:

This is the rear of the home.

Here is the front.  Its starting to look like a house!  And the unit next to ours is already getting their 3rd floor!

This is a closer pic of the garage area.  I wanted to get an idea of where the steel beams were.  Also the open space above the door is where our little balcony will go in.

Just another view of the upper half of the backside.  Through the window on the left you can see the holes where the ventilation will go that connects to our microwave. 

This is the photo Adam sent out on Friday.


  1. Hi Cami, progress is moving along. I really like the very last shot! All the pictures are awesome. It's nice to see and entire series of homes being built simultaneously.

    What is the your settlement date? If you feel inclined to do so, you can visit my page and get the instructions to add a countdown clock to your blog.

    1. We were only given a time frame. They are pretty sure our home will be done the first half of February, but because we have an FHA loan and our paperwork has to go thru the government first we may not close until the end of February or beginning of March. That was worse case scenario though and I'm told we are supposed to get an actual date when we have our pre drywall meeting.
