Pre- Dry Wall Meeting

This morning we had our pre-dry wall meeting today at 7:30am bright and early. When we arrived we saw a truck in our driveway all loaded up with dry wall stuff that will be installed immediately after our meeting. My husband mostly talked with our PM while I was keeping my little one busy running around in the family room, kitchen and morning room area. It was pretty neat to see all of our ceiling fan, and light rough ins. We also get to see our fireplace, and yep we do have a block up above our fireplace for our future TV mount. We got to check out every room of the house and so far it looks good! I cannot wait to see once the dry wall is in and see how different and how much nicer it will be once the walls are in and no longer see wood. Our PM is still estimating our closing date to be the 24th of June. He asked us if we wanted to be in earlier we could but I told him to take his time we already gave our apartment notice that we will be out of here the end of June. Our PM has been pretty awesome and I really do appreciate how much effort he puts with us especially on our communication. He calls us, emails and even text messages us on what is happening to our house.

I also even asked him if our landscaping will be completed before we move in or after our move in date and was quite pleased to know that our grass will be put in before we get to move in so yay extra bonus points on that. He also mentioned that our siding and our brick will arrive next week and sometime during that week they will start putting it up.

Aside from our exciting morning; last night we learned that my husband's grandfather passed away. He has been sick for some time and know his health has been slowly deteriorating. We will miss him greatly and he has an awesome sense of humor always saying funny things and making us laugh. When we learned of this sadden news we also found out that one of his wishes was that he wants the whole family to get together and have dinner with prime rib. I thought to myself that is so like him making jokes and in a way thinking of us. We will miss him very very much!!!!! We made arrangements to be with our family and will be flying up to Oregon tomorrow night. Our daily drive bys to our new house will be put on hold but when we come back for sure there will be something new to our house since our dry walls will be up by then and maybe our sidings/brick.

Until next week when there is something new and pictures will soon follow.
