Days 79 & 80

Day 79 wasn't much - vents were put in place in the ceiling, and more grading...that's all I can really think of.  But today (Day 80) they carpeted the ENTIRE house!  We stopped by about 4:30 and they were almost done, just finishing up the basement and parts of the stairs.  The carpet guys looked beat - I guess they started early in the morning, and this was a big job to do in 1 day...but they did it!  I am not in love with the carpet, but it will work.  We have 2 young kids, and I am anticipating having to change the carpet in high traffic areas in a matter of a few years anyways, so we did not go with the expensive upgrades RH offers.  I couldn't take pictures because my phone memory is at its max, so planning on deleting some tonight.

Off the top of my head, what I think they need to still complete -
  • Paint (lots of it) - front door additional coat, interior walls repaint, trim touchups, ceiling where initial attach access was cut
  • Install range, microwave, and dishwasher
  • Install piece of granite that goes between the sink and morning room (just noticed today it was not there)
  • Replace a few broken windows
  • Install basement toilet
  • Install closet/pantry racks
  • Add trim to one wall in great room
  • Paint floor in unfinished portion of the basement (apparently PM told hubby they were going to do this?  I know nothing of this)
  • Install vinyl in laundry room
Neighbors house that started a week after ours finished today and received their quality inspection.  House across the street started framing today, and house down the street has forms up!  Very exciting to see all of this happening.

Got a few requests from NVR today, and when I talked to the woman at my attorney's office the other day she said "well the 20th isn't set in stone...its the day we are shooting for."  Blah - I have already made plans for closing this day, deliveries/installations/movers the subsequent days...so I am going to be rather annoyed if they change our closing day.  It is 12 days from today...I hate how they can just wait until the very last minute to determine if things are a go or not.  I am a planner - organized - like to know what is going on and when things are going to happen.  I fell like this might be a very stressful next 12 days for me.
