Our pre-drywall meeting is complete and they will be working on the drywall today! It was a very informal meeting, not too much detail, I did see screws in our sub floor so I was happy about that :) I we also discussed the egress window situation. We will have a totally different type of window now since the normal one they use is a drop in, they will actually have to frame out the new hole with 2x4's and put a different window in, our PM said it will actually be more efficient and look better, but then I got the impression he didn't want to move the window (probably because it's expensive for them to do and cuts into their bottom line) but hey, it was their mistake and I want it fixed. I was more nervous about the structural integrity of the foundation being compromised if they moved the window but our PM assured us there is nothing to worry about. I think my husband is still worried though... anyone with some contracting knowledge have any insight on this?? The last think we want is to build a new house with foundation issues! That is the reason we are building new and not buying "used"
At least we got a nice surprise to take our minds off of the window situation, when we checked out the garage we found goodies! The cabinets are here, our door, sink and counters (I'm not a fan but we want to upgrade them ourselves down the line, I wasn't a big fan of the granite choices RH offered, and it was just out of our budget).
Now we just need to figure out our furniture situation, we keep going back and fourth and I can't decide on a dinning set... I think we will just use the set we have now which was the first set my parents ever bought, I grew up eating at that table so it will be good enough for now. I really want to see the hardwoods all done before making a purchase like that. I think we need a new sofa more than anything, ours is just so uncomfortable, so we are going to take most of our budget buying our dream sofa from Restoration Hardware. So basically, we will have an old dinning set and a sofa and a bed and a broken desk and some old filing cabinets :) But hey... one thing at a time, everything will come in time... I get so caught up in the excitement and wanting everything right now that I forget to take a step back and appreciate the fact that we are building this beautiful home and we have plenty of time to fill it up with stuff :)
