If you're been following along with the previous 17 parts of this series, you'll know things haven't been going very well with the building process of my new home. Well, it looks as though things, they are a changing...
Yes, the wrong cabinets are in the house and yes, the windows were reordered 5 times and yes, the entire front elevation of the house was wrong and yes, the exterior material we chose to use was not allowed by the HOA...
Despite all these obsticales, we're moving forward. We met with the "new" builder on Friday morning, and I think we'll be in the house in about 30 days.
I actually smiled when I walked in the master bedroom and saw the shower was almost complete. I love the slate, linear accent I chose. This was the first thing that made me smile about the house the entire 8+ months! It's funny how something so simple like a linear accent can makes things all better.
Here's another picture of the kitchen. For the avid readers, do you notice anything? Yes, the windows are in and these are the correct size... however, they've been moved AGAIN! They tried to put two electrical outlets above my cooktop. Like those would ever be used, especially when the gas/propane is turned on. I told them the location of those two outlets were unacceptable, and the only place to put them was under the windows... but there wasn't enough room, so they had to raise the windows. By doing this, the brickwork on the exterior was torn out and new brick has been ordered. They're going to get those windows right one of these days!!
And look at my Balcony!! It's awesome! I forgot to measure it, but it's almost the entire back of the house. 18" slate flooring that matches the interior. I can see some parties up here!
Here's a view from the back as this shows you how large, not on the balcony is, but also how large the covered patio is too.
Things are finally coming together. Just a few more "mistakes" need to be corrected and then they can continue on to the other things.
By the way, we did receive a credit back for the "white" mortar as the sales rep is now in agreement with us that what we got and what we paid for do not match. White should be white and not beige, but as the builder says, "But it's definitely not grey!" Yes, you're right, it's not grey and we especially didn't want grey, but it's also not white, thanks!
