Pre-drywall meeting date and 3rd party Inspection

Hey!!! The beginning of the new year already seems like it is flying by so fast. We had our 3rd party inspection last Friday on the 3rd. We decided it would be in our best interest to suck it up and pay for our own phased inspection because we will be living in this house for a long time and are spending a lot of money on it. Our builder says they have their own inspector that comes out and does one, the city does one, and the PM does one as well, never to much checking....right?

Well, our inspector said everything looked pretty good. There were some minor things with the framing like adding some more brackets to add support to beams and some plates to cover electrical wires. Nothing he said that can't be done in 1-3 hours. That is really good!!! It feels good to know that they have been doing a good job. I have read some horror stories on the blogs and have seen some news reports for our area of  terrible builders, which I won't mention on here. The inspection cost us $300 for 2 hours and a complete report. Not too bad for a preventative measure.

Our PM also called to schedule our pre-drywall inspection...wait for it....wait for it...FRIDAY, JANUARY 17th, 2014 at 8:00am!!!!!! We are so excited, that means we are so much closer to seeing our walls put up and it looking like a real house. We were not able to go on Sunday for our usual walk through because just like the rest of the country the Arctic Vortex has really it us hard down here and it is freezing.

That is all the news we have for. Soon things will really get moving and we will be able to post more pictures. I have heard that building goes in spurts and right now it is slow, slow, slow.

Until next time, Blessings :)

  2. Thanks!! It is really hard to keep up with this blogging thing, especially when I am not that computer savvy. Somehow I changed the settings and no one was able to read the blog :(
