What a Difference a Week Makes!

Thursday, January 12th:


One very short week later...

Thursday, January 19th:


I know, right???

Crazy! What you may notice from my last house update on Wednesday is we now have shingles on the roof, all of windows AND doors (front, interior garage and patio), and the HVAC and plumbing are complete! The electricians are scheduled to start today! Please also notice that our lovely brick is being added as well. I really like the one we selected -- Castletone:


Here's a closer pic of the guys working on it:


There were SIX (6) guys working on the brick. Six! And I think I counted at least 3 guys working on the roof putting the singles on. If you ever wondered how they've pulled this much work off in 7 short days, there's your answer! This pic was taken around 2PM yesterday, so I'm pretty sure it'll be finished by the time the kids and I swing by after picking LO up from school today. I can't wait to see how the siding will look with the brick. One day at a time, though... ;)
