They are still working like crazy on the house. All day Saturday they worked on drywall inside and tons of people came by this weekend to see the house and the one next to it. (But there's still no “Purchased” sign on either of them. They are also going to start another house 3 houses down. They are really flying on these houses. Anyone want to move in down the block? 🙂
They also started adding detail to the porch in the front.
And insulated in the garage.
I also found a birds next nestled next to the back door of the house. Hopefully they will hatch soon! Anyone know what kind of bird these are from?
They did a couple more things I thought I should take pictures of. 🙂
They poured the garage floor.
And the concrete for the porch.
I believe they have also poured the basement floor now. I looked down the egress window in the back and it looked like it had been done.
Of course, there's a ton of stuff being done inside, too….wiring, plumbing, venting. But no one has bought it yet….so no new neighbors. But we'll have some before we know it!
One more update and I think I am caught up until they do something really drastic. Which I am hoping will be siding! I can't wait to see what color it's going to be.
You will note there are now windows on the house and a front door. There's also shingles on the roof. So it's really coming together.
They are constantly working on things inside the house, but I am not going to update that. Because…well, I don't want to be a freaky neighbor. I might get in there and take pictures at some point, but we'll see. I will at some point post a couple other pictures I have on hand. Some are alternate fronts for this house and the floor plan. I am sure that will help some of you visualize it…because I know it helps me. I also want to post what some of the other houses in the neighborhood look like. Along with some of the other fronts our floor plan can have. But all in good time my friends. 🙂
Look! A roof! How exciting! At least I think it's exciting. 🙂 It looks so different with a roof. It looks like a house now! 🙂
Until next time my house followers!
The house is moving right along. They have it all set to put a roof up and have the awning for the front porch attached.
Until next time!
Here's another highly anticipated update on the house next door!
More house….(This is the side of the house, the side we live on.)
And more house…..(This is the front of the house.)
And still more house….(You can see a little of our house on the left!)
Until next time my fellow house stalkers!
Here's another update of the house next door. This is a picture looking in one of the garage doors. You can see the stairs as well as a couple windows above the stairs which are part of the two-story living room.
This is standing inside the garage.
For this next picture, pretend you are crooked…because I apparently was when I took this picture. 🙂 I wanted to show this (crookedness and all) because you can see the three arches in the entry way. I pointed out one the other day.
This is the back and the goofy pointy eat-in area. (You can also see our house on the ride side of the picture.
This is another kind of crooked picture. I stuck my head inside the house from the back. The arch you can see will be on the left side of the living room fire place. I have my head somewhere in the eat-in or kitchen area.
And finally, a view of part of the front of the house. I wanted to take this so you can see our house, too! 🙂 Just because I am silly like that. There will be a porch on this house, too. It will be by the door and by the big window you can see. You can't see the 3rd garage in this picture either.
It looks so different every day when we get home from work. I get so excited to see what they have done when I drive up! I love surprises! 🙂
Since I am behind with what is actually happening at the house right now, I thought I would catch up a little more! So here's another day of the house next door.
They added more walls in the house. And some of the boards which will be the first floor ceiling and the second floor's floor.
This is the large dining room window I mentioned yesterday. You can see inside the house a bit, too.
This is a view of the front. The window on the left is the study, the tall skinny hole is for the front door and the garages are on the right.
These are the garages.
This is a view from the front door. I stood on the steps they have there and took a picture looking in. The study is on the left, the dining room is on the left past the study. You can also see the stairs and the windows in the back are part of the two-story living room. The kitchen is around the stairs. On the right, you can see an arched “window” (there are actually three of them there), but those are built in display nooks. It would be silly to put windows into the garage! (Which is what is on the other side of that wall.)
And this is the back of the house. The pointy/triangular eating area cracks me up.
That should have to tide you over until my next update! 🙂
I have been scolded for being behind on my posts about the house next door. So here's another update (which is still a couple days behind)!
As you can see, they started putting up walls on the first floor. The first two pictures were taken from our bedroom closet window. That's the only window in our house you can actually see the new house. And I need to stand on a step stool to see out of said window. I think that's pretty nice. In the second picture you can see a BIG window on the main floor. That is where their dining room will be. And it looks at the side of our garage…interesting. I guess they will get good light in the dining room, but the view won't be anything to write home about. 🙂
Also, the second floor that is built is part of their living room which is an open two story living room. It looks nice, but all I see is wasted space where another room could go. But this is why there is only this part of the second floor done and nothing else.
I also love how they spray paint the house number on. I like it because it's pink, but their size cracks me up! More soon…maybe tomorrow!
I'm a little behind on my posts about the house next door. They are flying! These are few of the next step of the process since I last posted.
They covered the basement. This will be the main floor's floor. It was fun to walk around and try to figure out where things would go. But since I am not very visual, the next few days helped me see where things were going much better…they strarted putting up walls!
We never did figure out what all the orange markings on the floor were for. Anyone build houses that can fill me in? 🙂
Also, notice that they have the siding up on the house in the background. I love seeing the colors they make the houses!
And we'll have new neighbors before too long. A house down the block sold the other day. I can't wait to meet more new neighbors! Yay!
