Coming right along at 172. Husband stopped by this morning and ran into the PM, which resulted in a mini-walkthrough. As is the nature of house building, there's lots of tiny issues. A cracked piece of molding here, a bowed piece of wall there. PM was on top of everything and super receptive to the husband's feedback/suggestions. I feel really confident that we are headed in the right direction.
I've been talking to some neighbors and one told me the neighborhood consensus is that everyone there is around 90% happy with their houses. Sure there are little things; no house is perfect. But overall, pretty darn good. I think that's a very realistic goal. I know there are going to be things we wish we had done differently, and things that we wish RH had done differently. But stepping back and thinking about all the awesomeness we're getting (new construction, open floorplan, gourmet kitchen, even windows that work!), we're ridiculously pleased.
Here's where we are at:
|Railing are in and stained. We love the dark so much we've requested a second coat before they put the poly on it . I like my railings like a goth girl likes her eye makeup. The darker the better.|
|We love these cool circles. Fun Waverly fact: The railing doesn't all come as one piece . The trim carpenters custom fit the runs together to match the curve of the staircase. They did a fabulous job.|
|Dining room fully trimmed out and first coat of trim paint done.|
|All the first floor doors lined up for a spray.|
|Second floor doors.|
|And this is one of the reasons we splurged on the upgraded trim. Crown molding in the 2-story foyer with its first coat of paint.|
|Foyer -- trimmed out and painted.|
|Siding folks attached their scaffolding directly to the roof.|
|Georgian Gray siding going up.|
|Detail. Love the color!|
