House Update: Open Wall Tour

Just a mini house update today; so there's no pictures.

We had our open wall tour yesterday, which is basically where we walk through the framed house as a last step before we go into drywall. We're basically making sure everything is in the right place so they don't have to rip out walls later to fix any mistakes.

The only things we found were a few ceiling fan prewires were missing and a couple of outlets needed to be added. Everyone I've asked for home building advice said you need more outlets than you think, so get as many as you can afford; we chose to add extras in the pantry (for a potential coffee bar), the stairs (night light!), and the master closet.

Given all that, we should have drywall up next week and the exterior should be getting done in 2-3 weeks. Currently, we're looking at a mid-September move-in.

Oh, and our garage is about to go in! The foundation is boxed up and once again, we're just waiting for it to stop raining so they can pour the slab and put all the pieces together.
