Weekly House Update-Week 11

We are pretty much closed in! Roof, windows, and some doors have been installed. The garage doors are coming next week and our front door will stay off until the framers have finished blowing dust everywhere:) A lot has happened in a week so I’ll walk you through the updates. First up, the exterior. The roof turned out great. We love the shingle color and the dormers with all the trim on are gorgeous:)

dormers finished before paintWe will be painting the dormers {and by we, I mean Mike with a harness attached}. We have chosen our colors and I think they will tie nicely in with the brick.

garage door to oustideThis is the living room/kitchen area with windows and our french doors installed. Both doors are functional.

molly bath installedWe did a final walk-through with our HVAC guy today. He has finished his rough-in and is ready for inspection. Molly thought he was hilarious:)
