7 days to go!!!!!

That's right. By this time next Tuesday, yours truly will be an official home-owner! How wonderful! Last night, Hubby and I went to visit the house and boy is it ever coming along.

What has been done since our last visit:
  • The front porch has been finished
  • The railings have been put in
  • Outside lights have been intsalled
  • The siding has been installed
  • All of the walls are finished (drywalled and painted)
  • The hardwood has been installed on the main floor
  • All of the cabinets have been delivered
What is left to be done:
  • Finish the top of the porch and add decorative front
  • Finish the posts that hold up the roof above the porch
  • Put the fireplace mantle in
  • Install all cabinets in the Kitchen, Master Ensuite and Second bathroom
  • Lay the underpad and caret on the stairs, upper hallway and all the second floor bedrooms
  • Install the glass shower in the Master Ensuite
  • Install all the plumbing fixtures (toliet, sinks, faucets etc.)
  • Attach all of the closet/room doors
  • Pave the driveway and add the sod
  • And a few other minor things here and there
All in all, the house is almost done and we are very happy with what we have seen up to this point. There are a few goof-ups that we have already brought to the attention of our builder and they will be addressed/fixed before we take possession next Tuesday.

SO - without further ado, here are some shots from last night. Enjoy the latest eye-candy :)

The front of the house:

The side of the house (including a shot of my husband crouching down to take a peek inside the basement):

Our tv room. The hardwood was just finished earlier in the day and I guess the workers didn't want to scratch it up (hence the cardboard on top of it):

Our closet:

A decorative niche located at the top of stairs:

Here are our kitchen cabinets. Unfortunately, the handles on the doors and drawers were not the ones that we signed off on. This will be fixed in the next few days.

And that's about it for now. We will probably stalk... er... I mean check out our house tomorrow evening so stay tuned for those photos!
