Homesite Visit - Week 6: A very happy birthday

So this was really the first time I've spent my birthday like I would any other day.  In the morning I went to the dentist to get a cavity filled, me and Mike had dinner with my family and we made our regular trip to the house to get some progress photos.  Nothing too exciting right?  It was still a great birthday though because we got to see our home look more like a home!

Anyway, we got some photos of the inside, but like many of you already know, its hard to get good photos in a house that is only framed.  It all looks the same.  They cleaned it up ALOT and started electrical and HVAC.  Like I mentioned the other day, we do have all of our windows and our doors.  Next week I will pay closer attention to make sure none of them are broken..

This is on the 1st floor.  I don't like that there is a hole in wall, however the fact that its painted orange probably means that Adam or Colin spotted it too.

Looking into the living room from the kitchen..

This is the long wall in the kitchen where the fridge, stone and microwave will be.  The ventilation you see is for the microwave.

He was looking at this..."Raise shower heads".  It was one of our requests at the pre construction meeting.  He is 6'5" and the shower heads in the model were not tall enough for him!

Our duct work in the attic looks like a spider.

Our door ornamentation.  I hate the pineapple.  Who comes up with these ideas?!


  1. I wouldn't worry too much about the hole in the wall. We had a few for various reasons and they were all filled in with a spray insulation.

    I'm not too sure about the pineapple thing... I wonder if they could leave it off?

  2. I will ask about the pineapple at the pre drywall meeting. My instinct says no they have to use it because the exteriors of all of the homes are pre-planned. Mike and I didn't have any say in what colors or decoration they chose.

  3. I'd say that pineapple could mysteriously go missing shortly before closing and nobody would even notice. :)

  4. Cami, you are right! Your PM has marked the spots for attention and as M said, they do come out and spray any openings with the spray insulation. I took pictures of each location.

    Consider the pineapple good health! LOL My mother keep telling me I should eat pineapples daily. lol smiley face
