Siding is on!

The siding is almost complete and I think it looks great! Its Hardi shingle on the top and siding on the bottom. We are still in the process of picking an exterior paint color, but we are thinking of a medium bodied grey.

Inside, dry wall install is supposed to start this week. After the power is turned on, they will install the hardwoods (on the main and upper floor) and then start the cabinets.

I've finished picking all the tile, cabinets, counters, appliances and doors. The decisions left to make are floor stain color, interior and exterior paint colors and carpeting for the basement.

I'm crossing my fingers that power comes soon. I am hoping they can finish a few days early if so!

Here's a picture of the fireplace that Peter wanted so much:

So the house doesn't look that different on the outside, with the exception of new trim, new porch and doors.

On the inside, the plumbing piping has been installed and the electrical rough in is done. Now, they wait for power to come from the utility company which can take up to a month.

The tubs and shower bases have been put in and the final measurements have been taken for the kitchen and bathroom cabinets. I have signed off on the final cabinets and appliances and am going to pick counters in the next week or two. In the next month, most of the final decisions will be made!

So far, everything is on time and on schedule with a completion date of early June..let's hope it stays that way!
