Happy New Year's Eve.  The siding has been completed and we couldn't be happier with our color selections. A huge shout out to the guys working on the siding for "GETTING IT DONE." They are amazing. Don't know when the masonry will begin but so far, so fabulous.  We even stayed to see the shutters go up.

Friday, December 28, 2012The siding on the house has begun today.  Apparently it should take a few days to complete.  The weather has been very much up and down so we shall see how long it will take to complete.  Yesterday was rainy and very windy, today was calm.  Saturday calls for snow, Sunday more wind.  The painters should begin next week as well.  We also saw the shutters in the garage...they are next.  I'm not sure when the masonry should begin but I pray soon.

Winestone shutters are here

Island Pearl siding....nice!!!

Yesterday's weather was a hot mess, a wintry mix of sleet, snow, freezing rain, wind and freezing temperatures.  There's no way any work was done on the house in those conditions.  Today was better, a bit warmer but with the 40+ MPH winds, I wasn't sure if anyone chanced it.  I was wrong again.  It looks like the walls have putty applied and the siding has arrived.  Now let's see if the wind dies down so the siding can go up.  I can't imagine trying to put it up with the wind but Ryan surprises me every time.

Let's pray it all matches shall we? I guess it'll be easy to see if it doesn't

We stopped past the house today so that we all could get a better look at the drywall.  It's all pretty much hung and awaiting the putty and sanding.  We also tried to get a better understanding of the surrounding property line.  Plenty of space.  Bubba came with today, he had a ball sniffing around and checking out the new space.

The hubby went by the house today and the drywall is up!! They will finish the drywall next week, sand and paint.  They will also begin siding as well.  It'll be interesting to see the pace next week since both Christmas and New Year's Day is approaching.  I anticipate it will lag a bit but who knows.  So far, so fabulous

On a whim, we drove past the house thinking ,"they can't possibly be done with insulation." Not only are they done with the insulation, but it's already been inspected! Drywall...lego
