I’m not sure what goes between the sidewalk pieces, in front of the driveway, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon. Apparently they only put one layer of blacktop on the driveway for now. Then 6 months from now when it has settled and what not, they give it another coat.

We went to check on the progress of our house on Friday afternoon. It is going splendidly, thank the Lord. The have the cabinets up in the kitchen, base boards throughout the house, railings, bathroom tile, primer on the walls, and some of the appliances are in. One teensy weensy problem we noticed right when we walked in… they installed the island in the kitchen sideways. Its 90 degrees off- the cabinets were supposed to open towards the stove… now they open towards the sink and dishwasher. The
sales rep panicked and called the contractor to come over and look at it, then he started making calls. Apparently, in some homes they install them long ways like that, and whoever installed it made sure it was the proper distance away from the other counters. So, after some deliberation, Hubby and I decided that we actually liked it better facing that way. Since it was technically up to code, they let us keep it that way. I think it actually opens the kitchen up a bit. I was very excited to see that in all my lower cabinets there is a shelf that slides out! And I am going to have to invest in a cute step ladder because there is no way I will be able to reach those top shelves! I can’t wait to see what it is going to look like when the counter tops come in!! They have almost finished grading the lot! This was taken at the back of the house towards the side yard.

Or as they say out here, “sheet-rock”. I still can’t get used to that term. The image that always pops into my head is giant slabs of granite. Why would I want those on my walls? The brickwork is finished! And from what we could see, they have drywall up in the garage. Hooray.
