The Siding is almost Complete!

Wow!  A lot has happened in a week.  It's so hard because everything that has happened are just the details.  Painting trim, fixing boo boos.....lots of things.  So...Here's a lot of photos!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!  I can't wait to see the landscaping.  They are putting the topsoil down today. :)

My SR said she loved coming out the door to see this vinyl cedar shake siding.  I agree 100%.


This is an update from a very old post.  I took a picture of this before it was caulked.  It's still a little messy but they still have touch up work to complete so I'm sure it will be done.

This was a surprise.  There is now a hole in my ceiling.  The PM promised it would be taken care of.  It is from the Master Tub being done incorrectly.  They accidentally put the motor on the outside wall so they had to flip the tub....which means they ordered a new tub.  The new tub was chipped...and then they put the faucet handles opposite of the drain......so...the PM has assured me that it will be replaced and the faucet and drain will be in the right place....along with the motor.  Yay!

The shelving is in!!!!!!

Walk in closet!  My side is on the right of course. :)


I love how this looks.  Look at all those doors!
They number them too!  Very organized.
The air is in!
It looks so small for the size of the house.  That's energy star for you I guess.
Details.....I had a Thomas moment.  I have no idea what it all means...I just want it to work.  Does anyone know the SEER rating?


The Kitchen isn't set up yet...but it's in. :)
Another shot of the counter.  I love it!  That's my island.


A little boo boo at the top of the stairs. As long as they fix it...I'm happy.

FIRE PLACE!!!!!!!!!!  I love the mantel.  It's so pretty!  I can't wait to decorate.

A little bit crooked to the wall but oh well.  I'm not going to be using the bathroom with my head up.

Double Take.  I got the double sinks and the SHOWER SURROUND!  :)  They even put a soap dish in....which we didn't ask or pay for.  Eventually we might replace it with one that matches the tile...but maybe not.  It kind of echos the white of the tub and sink.

The humidifier has been installed!

They drywalled the garage.  I love how it looks.  I was a bit surprised about the naked studs.....but how can I complain?  They are naked studs.

More drywall.  So Pretty.

    1. We close Monday August 6th. I have a million things to do before then with my photography company and with moving. I'll be surprised if I don't go crazy. ;)

  5. Love your exterior! The shake siding really adds that "something extra." We didn't see the line up of doors in our house, but we could tell where they had sprayed them as it left a cool pattern on the floor :)

  6. WOW, the shake siding on the lower half of the house is so exciting!! I love love the pictures of the standing doors and the picture of the HVAC system.

  7. The door photo is awesome (truly a photographer's eye)! And the "naked studs" comment - hilarious! Things sure are moving along quickly.

  8. Love that cedar shake siding!!! To answer your A/C question SEER is an energy efficiency rating...higher the number the better. Stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. Anything over 14 is considered really good. The photo is a bit fuzzy to read. I design large commercial hvac systems for university buildings and zoo life support systems. I drool over things like nameplate data ;)

    1. I looked for the rating on this and couldn't find it. Any idea of where I could find it?

    3. Looking on the interwebz it looks like it is also a 2.5 ton unit. Got to like those system tags! :-)

  9. We love your shake siding! We wish we would have gotten some on the front of our house. We can't wait to be as far along as you are. What did they decide to do about the damage to your tub? I worry about ours because its been sitting outside in a box for two weeks. The pm says it will be okay. We will see.

    1. Thank you. They are going to replace the tub. They replaced it the first time because the tub was put in with the motor on the back wall. This time not only was it chipped but the plumber put the faucet opposite of the drain....which means the drain will be in my face when I'm soaking in the tub. We said something and expressed our deep dissatisfaction with something so insane and the PM immediately said that it would most certainly be replaced. Thank Goodness because that jacuzzi tub and the kitchen island are the two things I'm really looking forward too. :)

    2. That's good to hear that your PM is going to replace it. Our PM is really great to work with and I think he would take care of any problems that should arise. Our framing is almost complete so today we went there and walked through the house. We seen that they had installed all the windows except for one and it was no where to be found. Another window was installed but the glass was broken so we have to wait until morning to find out when he's going to replace them. I can't get over how someone could install the tub faucet opposite of where the drain is.....lol. I'm like you. I love and look forward to enjoying my tub. I love the floor plan of the Venice. I hope you enjoy yours as much as we know we will. :)

  10. Hey Charissa, I tried to reply to your post on my blog but for some reason it posted my reply to you to someone else. Just wanted to thank you and tell you your house is looking GREAT!

  12. I am convinced! I think it will be beautiful! You have plenty of trim to balance the dark. Can't way to see the pics siding

  13. Judging from those pictures, your interior is slowly taking shape, Charissa. It's just a matter of time before all your furniture is in place. By the way, I love the design of your exterior, it’s simple but yet distinct. All it needs is a greener landscape, I suppose. :)

  14. I don’t blame him. Those vinyl cedar sidings look awesome! The outside of your house looks great, minus the area to be flattened and the tractor, of course.

    Though you got hit with that GFE thing in the end, you got a great house out of it, and that’s what matters in the end. Cheers!

  15. The exterior of your house looks amazing! Love how the bricks and the siding doesn’t clash at all, and that garage door looks misleading from the outside. Did you have something to add on top of that garage door, or was that just unfinished siding? Anyways, everything looks awesome! Cheers!
