Lighting & HVAC

There has been a good amount of progress inside the house this week. All lighting fixtures have been installed, switches are wired, wall outlets are in place, thermostats have been wired up, and the air conditioning condensers are hooked up outside.

Front entry light fixture has been installed
Dining room chandelier
Love the light fixture at the top of the second story – It’s a smaller version of the one at the front entry
Ceiling fans have been installed in each of the bedrooms
Love the fan in the great room, but it’s going to be a chore keeping it clean
Master en suite light fixtures are in
Pendant light above the corner kitchen sink
Jack n Jill bathroom light fixtures mirror those from the master en suite
We decided to upgrade the bonus room/fifth bedroom and have this light fixture replaced with a ceiling fan to match all the other rooms
Ecobee thermostats have been installed both upstairs and downstairs
External lights for the front and side entry have been installed, as well as a ceiling fan in the sun room and flood lights at either end of the rear of the house
In preparation for the HVAC being turned up, two air condenser units have been installed, one for the upstairs and one for the downstairs of the house

We received some really good news this week as well. Our new home consultant called to let us know that they heard back from the cabinet company about our concerns regarding the bathroom countertops. Apparently the manufacturer had trouble keeping up with the high volume of orders and experienced a shortage from their original supplier. In order to continue filling orders, and unbeknownst to the builder, they started to fill orders with a different supplier to help fill demand. Since what we recently had installed looks nothing like the builder’s sample piece, the cabinet provider is going to switch the countertops out for the ones that match what we selected. We are hoping to have that work scheduled as soon as next week, and were told the plumber (who was scheduled to come out this past Monday) is on hold until that work is complete.

Unfortunately, much of the work we’ve been waiting to be finished outside (concrete driveway, patio, parking pad, additional fill dirt and topsoil etc.) has been on hold due to the large amount of rain we’ve received. We are hoping for a dry spell so the builder can continue to progress in those areas.
