Drove over after work and immediately heard blasting salsa music from inside. That can only mean that work was underway. Based on the amazing job and stellar pace of the other latino crews I knew they would be pretty far along (seriously, framers kicked butt, electricians, took a week). In the 48 hours since I had been there all of the drywall was installed and todays team was finishing up the first coat of drywall tape and mud. I stayed out of their way but checked out all the rooms and it looks great. The crew chief chatted me up for a bit but I didn't want to slow the pace so I got out of there.
I'm relieved that the family room doesn't feel too small without the 4' extension. This was a tough call, but with the extra window it feels very open. Some rooms feel smaller now (Study, Dining room) but I love the openness of the back half of the house.
Brick is all done, siding this week. Susposedly the drywall is done by Saturday and ready to paint.
NVR setup our closing time and confirmed our date today, so we're good to go for June 8th.
