The trim and interior doors have finally arrived and are in the process of being installed. Here are some pictures from the last couple days:
After another lengthy conversation with our new home consultant, we are feeling a little more confident with the timeline of the work that is left to complete, and with the reasoning for some of the delays we’ve experienced over the last month. Apparently there was a backlog with material deliveries which affected not only our new construction, but the construction of five other homes she’s managing as well. Crews have been scheduled and ready to work, but did not have the necessary materials to begin.
Assuming we don’t encounter any more unexpected delays, here is the timeline we were provided for the next month:
- Window and floor trim, crown molding, and interior door installation should be finished by the end of this week.
- Interior and exterior paint is scheduled to begin next week and will take approximately two weeks to complete.
- The kitchen cabinets and island are projected to be installed the second week of February, with the marble countertop installation immediately after.
- The rear deck for the enclosed sun room and the exterior stone accents should be installed by the end of February, pending weather.
We were told that the house will be locked up after the cabinets and countertops go in. Thankfully, since we want to continue taking progress pictures, we still have the option to gain entry from the workers (or, we can also schedule an appointment with the builder).
