Dry wall is up! Whoo Hoo...

Our Dry wall is up the pictures below were taken just the other day and I am soo excited to see that there are no more wood.  It is all covered. It is still a work in progress but I just had to snap a couple. This time it is not 80 something pictures haha didn't go too crazy this time.

At first the PM did not order enough shingles for our roof and it took them about a week and half for the rest of the shingles to arrive. Now it is all completed so it looks a lot better than seeing it half done. As I was checking out the drywall I was in the basement and was surprised to learn that there are no egress window. For some reason in my head I assumed that all basements have them. I have no idea why I thought that but was a bit disappointed to learn that we will not have one. Now, I am kicking myself in the head why did I think that? I should have done better research but I guess it did not even cross my mind. This is the first time in my life that we will have a basement. So be sure when you are getting a basement the egress window is a separate thing that you have to purchase.

The front of our house (Shingles are all done)

I am so happy our Front door has little windows on!

Our kitchen

Morning room side windows

Fireplace in the Family room

I have no idea what to put on that little corner for decoration. 

Our small window upstairs. I have mixed feelings on this window

Took a peek in the garage - Our Shutters :)

Our siding!


  1. Wow! Really feels like a house, now, huh? Plenty of time to decide on decor. Hugs

  2. It's looking great. I your basement not being finished. If it is I thought it was a code requirement to have an egress window. Have no fear, you can always install one later, but definitely easier to do when building.

  3. @ BD yes my basement is finished which was why I was dumbfounded that there was no egress window. I just have a small window in the basement but it is not an egress window. I thought it was code too but apparently its not. My sales rep says its something you add but I had no idea that it was separate. It is too late to add since the structural stuff is already there.

  4. Hi Stephanie! It looks really great. When we were looking at the venice model, i had some weird feelings about that little window too, but i'm sure you will grow to love it. As for the egress window, i think it up to the local code. My local code requires it, but some places don't. You'll be fine, just don't let the kids start any campfires in the basement.
