House Update

Hey Everyone.

The house is way over budget.... i am hoping I don't need to go ask for more money because the payment will not fit into our budget. I will have to see how it all goes because it is not done yet.

We are now hoping  for maybe October. Contractors keep delaying their times. We just want to get in there!

The upstairs is all done. We bought it all done as a ready to move home. Its the basement that is taking forever. But it is 90% sheet rocked, but not mudded and taped. Electrical is mostly done. Plumbing is good, water is on as of yesterday so that was a good day. Ducting is almost finished. We need stairs to the entrances and the garage(hopefully in the next couple weeks. I don't want to move in before it is mudded and taped and sanded. i will paint.  And we are having a floor coat put on in a couple weeks. All cement is poured except for the pad in front. So if the contractors come when they say they will it will be good.

We have to go to a wedding 14 hours away the 2nd week of september so that will set us back time and money wise. It is family.

Hope all is well with everyone and you had a great summer!

Was it supposed to take this long to build?  I appoligize, I forget, but is this house on the property you already live in?

I thought houses were suppose to take a long time to build. At least it is exactly what you want! Where are you living right now then?

I am sure this will be worth it and you will love your new home :-)
