Some Things Have Changed

Over the course of the last few weeks, quite a few things have changed.

First, the pretty pictures you saw of the foundation, well, one wall of that has been torn down. The good news is that it had to be done in order to fix the mistake that was made when it was laid. Hopefully that will be done by the beginning of next week.

We have also changed what windows we are going to use. After seeing the windows that Danesh is using on his house at Clayton Pond, we decided to price out the exact same windows. We have changed our selection to Integrity Windows by Marvin. The color is exactly what was used on the Tucker Bayou in Watersound North, on the Southern Living Idea house. We also ended up saving somewhere close to $3000 for windows that are more energy efficient and have the grilles on the inside and outside instead of between the glass.

These pictures are from Danesh's house in Clayton Pond. The first is a picture of the exterior, we love this color, it is what we chose for our house. The second picture is one that we photoshopped the grilles to match the grill pattern that we are getting for our house.

Another thing that changed is the interior doors. We started out wanting 5-panel horizontal doors, but could not find them for a reasonable price. In December, Masonite released the exact door we wanted in their molded panel series. This door is so new that is not on their website as being available, but sources close to the situation tell us that we can get it. We are still awaiting the quote, but we don't expect it to be much higher than the 2-panel door quote that we received earlier.

I believe that we have a pretty busy couple of weeks coming up. The floor system is scheduled for delivery on Wednesday. The SIP walls are scheduled to come in at the end of next week or the beginning of the week after, and all framing is set to be done before the end of the month.

Great window choice--they are real similar to the pozzi's we have on the house here in the Grove. Nice that they are fiberglass too. Love mom
