We had our pre-drywall meeting today but only my fiancé (very soon to be DH) went since I had to work. When he got there he saw a big surprise....SIDING!  Our PM said that they chose to go ahead with the siding even though it is normally done after the drywall. I think it was because they finished the insulation early last week and didn't have anything else to do until our meeting today. The exterior is completely done!

On the walkthrough, our PM explained all the extras that Ryan Homes puts into their houses such as argon in the windows, water heater, etc... This part is vague because my dear fiancé isn't good at remembering things!

There was a leak in the powder room that needs to be fixed. Our PM had already called the plumbers before the meeting to have it fixed. Other than that, everything was great and went well!

Siding is up!

  6. Wow, the house looks good! I’m actually excited to see it finished! It is a pleasure to see your house taking shape before your eyes. The siding looks amazing! Are you the one who chose the siding? Either way, I think it’s a good choice because it complements the color of the roof and window.
