BUT, the good news is that we will officially be closing on our IL house. Luckily, we have movers coming to pack the house, down to the silverware, and loading it into their truck. Such a blessing to have this perk! All I have to do is clean up after the crew to make the house "broom ready". I can do that!
Back to the new house. We are expecting big changes when we get back next week. The PM says we will likely have our pre-drywall meeting next Monday or Tuesday. He will know better toward the end of the week. We are seriously contemplating hiring an independent inspector to also come look at the house before they start closing up all the electrical and plumbing. THoughts????
Last week I posted about how they opened the front window and cut a hole in the floor to concrete the basement. Well, here is the remnants of that. We will be asking them to replace that whole board because when you walk on the patched part, it moves...so fast forward 6 months and now a squeaky floor. No thank you. Although, that will be my daughters room so I could detect any midnight sneaky manuevers...hmmmm. I'm sure she will never do that!
As for the basement..... It's still huge and I am so excited!
Future guest room. It will be finished.
Our home on paper. This is taped to the back door with every option and spec necessary for the subcontractors and PM to refer to...
Tonight I went down to the basement and it looks like one of the basement walls that are currently suspended from the ceiling fell....it caused this huge crack. I will be following up to ensure that they replaced this whole board. I also took a pic of the number written on it so I can double check.
And the last thing that was done today was duct work. All the floor vents are cut out and duct work is meandering throughout the basement and walls. Yay!
I know I really need these next 6 days away because I'm sure the work crew and PM are tired of the white Acadia cruising by every day. In fact, our PM made a joking comment (but there is some truth to every joke, right?) about seeing my car daily......ummm. I got nothin. He IS right!
So, til next week...... say your prayers and make good choices.
