Day 62 - Exterior Lighting & Prep for Driveway

They seemed to have cleared both the driveway in front of the garage and the additional space we requested.  This is exciting!  Finally a way to get to the house without tracking through mud!  :)
We also got our exterior lighting today.  UG!  I hope they have a plan to hide that hideous wire that trails from the garage to the ground for the lawn light.  Seriously?  It wouldn't be very obvious on a home that's at ground level but ours?  Yeah, that's attractive.
We have a meeting scheduled with the PM tomorrow to review the front porch steps and some landscaping for the fail lot grading.  I've tried to remain positive but I believe I'm reaching my breaking point.  We went over a month without word on the plans or suggestions for the front porch, after being told they would work on it.  We were also told someone would reach out to us about landscaping to talk about solutions for the hill in the backyard, but that also didn't happen until we had to ask.  I hope I hear good news tomorrow.  I hope it's workable. 

I hope I can get into the house soon to look around.  I want to see something I like.  I hate being so negative.

  2. The exterior looks great. I'm sure they will hide that wire. And I'm excited to see the inside too!

  3. Can't wait to see the inside. I'm sure it's as pleasing as your home's exterior. Great seeing it all come together. Hope you hear good news regarding the landscaping and porch.

  6. Hi there. I've have been following your blog since the end of May as we are building an Avalon Isles with Ryan. Been looking forward to more updates as your house seemed to have been moving along. Here's to hoping everything is moving smoothly.

  8. It's kinda risky when electrical wirings for your exterior lighting are exposed. I hope you checked the installation and made sure they're properly insulated to prevent electric shocks. Months have passed now, and I wonder if you're done with the construction. Did you move in already?
