Construction Progress: (More) Granite, Garage, Electrical

As we get closer to the finish line, the progress is a little bit less dramatic than in weeks past, but there's still plenty to be excited about. The garage door is installed, granite in the kitchen is in, interior door and trim moldings are up, vinyl flooring in laundry area is in, and some of the outlets have been wired in. Pepco (electric in our area) is supposed to come Monday or Tuesday, so I think electric stuff isn't far off.

Timing wise, our PM said they are "on track for construction to be completed in November, then it’s just up to the mortgage side of things to get you settled, hopefully before Thanksgiving." Only two months to go now! I suspect we'd be done even sooner, but because it's such a big row of condos, they probably have to make sure construction is finished on the other nine units before anyone can move in.

Sink is in, too. There's something about the blue clingfilm that makes me want to rip it off just like Christmas wrapping paper. CANNOT HANDLE THE EXCITEMENT.

  1. Wow they already have so much done and not closing until November?? They put our countertops and flooring in just a couple of weeks ago! And I totally agree about the blue plastic, you just want to rip it all off and marvel at the beauty underneath. Patience. :-)

  2. So exciting for you all! We just picked our flooring and tiles. Can't wait to see what yours looks like!

  3. Your granite is beautiful!! I would want to rip off the blue wrap as well!

  4. I can't believe you have to wait till November! It looks so far done. But yes, I remember the feeling of wanting to uncover that gorgeous granite! :) Hang in there!!!! And the outside is stunning. Love the balcony.
