A Roof, A Roof!

After waiting almost a whole week, we finally went by the house today.  We knew the plan was to finish the framing completely and start on plumbing and electrical.  We now have a roof complete with shingles and they also installed the windows and doors.  They got all the interior plumbing done but haven't started on the electrical work yet.

After we left the house we got our weekly update from our PM. He updated us on all the stuff we saw in our visit and told us that the electricians, HVAC, and insulation will be going in next week. We also scheduled our pre-drywall meeting for Monday, July 9th!

Interesting story..
When we got to the house, there was another car parked in front but there were no workers.  A couple was inside our house because there was a stray dog upstairs.  They were trying to get him out but the dog wouldn't let anyone touch him.  They said he had been wandering around the neighborhood the whole week but nobody had been able to catch him.

I can't get the rest of the pictures to upload right now but here is the shot from the road..

We have a second floor!

We went by again today (three times in one week!) to check out the progress. They had almost finished the second floor!

Our PM told us today that framing will continue until mid next week and then the plumbers, electricians, and all that will come next. 

It's so different than it was a week ago!

You can see the Service Door in the Garage!
