First stop - The Garage. Due to the lot grading our garage had to be dropped below the house, which makes the inside bigger than it looks on the outside and adds additional steps. I'm positive that this is going to mean an extra cost on my garage door installation but gives slightly more storage area up high for those pesky once a year holiday decorations. All the switches and outlets seemed to be in their rightful places. This is a good start.
|We have all our drywall supplies ready to go!|
|Here's a good angle to show the extra space|
|Washer on the left? Mine has always been on the right, hrm|
|The recessed is too crammed to the left I think|
|The missing jack should be to the left corner. The shiny thing is the vent|
|This pantry is exciting and it has its own light|
|No privacy here! LOL.|
|I don't like any of the places that Guardian decided to put the jacks|
|Black wire in the middle is the temperature control location|
|Notice there's no insulation between rooms|
- First, the electrical panel is in the finished part of the basement in a space I indicated that I wanted to add a kitchenette in the near future. I very clearly stated I wanted to do this during pre-construction and asked that we try to put it somewhere else, but apparently there were NO alternatives. What an eyesore and a disappointment.
- Guardian, again puts the jacks in some stupid places.
- The closet will be adjusted a bit for more use of the unused space under the stairs.
- The second washer and dryer hookup is in the space that I noted during the pre-construction meeting that I would be finishing. I was hoping they could have put it closer to the sump pump like I asked, but apparently not. Again, another disappointment. It's now in the location I planned on putting a closet. I feel like no one listened or cared enough to accommodate my requests.
|Fans to blow the basement dry.|
|I wish I could use ALL that space under the stairs|
|Love the egress - HATE the well - and HATE the trash the contractors have thrown in it|
|We have my friend Brittany's (lot 56) water heater! Oops.|
|I found out that the black trash bag is holding insulation around the venting system - neat|
|I just liked this view :) Look at all the sheetrock!|
|I would have liked to keep it in a closet but apparently it can't be|
|The house seems so much smaller than the model|
|It was an itsy bitty teeny weeney square window *humming pokadot bikini*|
|This hose height is ridiculous. I chuckled when I walked over to "test" it. Seriously? Careful, don't bump your head.|
|This one isn't as bad and liveable I guess.|
|None of the house I've seen with the sugar creek look the same from one to the next, so it's hard to judge what it will look like|
|No more huge puddle sitting on the torn waterproofing|
