Construction Progress: Week 3

Holy jeez, where does time go? I feel like I blinked and June vanished.

We are keeping an ear to the ground for holiday sales. Generally speaking, we don't have a ton of room to store stuff, so we have to be a little selective what we shop for, but we did pick up this Schlage keypad deadbolt because it was an Amazon deal of the day for about 67% off. We'll do a review once we've actually moved in, but I love the idea of not having to worry about keys when we take the dog for a walk, or when family's visiting. It's also Consumer Report's #1 pick.

Here's progress from the third week of construction. It's been raining a lot recently, way more than usual, so I expect that's probably slowed down construction some. I have no idea what that brown tarp looking thing is. But hey, progress!


  1. We are having the same keypad deadbolt installed in our house. We also have one in our current home. It's great for our kids, as they always seem to misplace their key. You guys will love it! The brown tarp makes it look like your foundation is made of chocolate pudding... OR maybe it's just time to eat lunch lol

  2. At first I thought that was waves of water with your foundation filled up from the rain!

    Glad to know its plastic. Likely just a vapor barrier for under the concrete.

  3. At first glance I thought the brown tarp was muddy water that had filled your foundation. Then I read your message, lol. I have no idea what its for either, but its funny looking. I like the chocolate pudding idea, lol
