Pre-Drywall Meeting

We had our pre-drywall meeting today.  Everything looked good in the house.  The only issue was an incorrect placement of an intercom by Guardian.  They put it about 8-10 inches too high.  Easily fixable as the wire is long enough to extend it down that far.  On a good note, when we walked into the kitchen I noticed 5 recessed light boxes.  The electrician put them in instead of the standard lighting...his mistake = our gain!  That's a free $500 in upgrades!  Our PM said they would keep them in place!  I am so glad as I wanted recessed lights but it was on the "cut" list of upgrades. 

October 21st we will have our final walk through.  And on the 25th we will close! 

The first of two inspectors was at our house during our meeting.  If all goes well then drywall starts this weekend.  We will be in drywall all week long.  The next week will involve flooring, trim, and prime.  The following week will be cabinets, painting, and other misc.  We were slated to start siding today, however, due to the heavy rainfall the siding team is behind schedule. 


  1. Congratulations! I cannot wait until we get to this stage! As of now, we only have dirt! No walls, no concrete, nothing! Although you are towards the end of your home building journey, I look forward to following the progress on your home!

  2. Gotta love the free upgrades...maybe we should have approached it that way...would have saved us a ton of money :)

  3. thats awesome, free upgrades! We are still on the same schedule :) We have our final walk through on the 21st of Oct as well!!
