So far I have walls and a first floor...*YEAH- in my best Lil' Jon voice*

Framing was supposed to start today, I drove by yesterday and the workers had started already.  So went by today and I.had.walls!!!

Picture(s) below...I will do my normal Sunday drive by after church and maybe they'll have progressed further so I can get a real good look inside. :)

It doesn't look so small now.

Progress Pics...

Stopped by today to see if the concrete was actually poured yesterday...and it was!  Got some pics...including the building behind me which in a weeks time has been progressed.  Also noticed how close I'm going to be to the building behind me...I need to see if I can find a patio enclosure to add, so when I walk out to my patio I have a little privacy. 

Concrete...things are slowly coming together.  This looks lovely! :)


Unit A,B,&C wood.  I'm unit C...part of this bundle is the 1st floor interior wood for Unit C. 

More wood...

Not sure what this is, or what it means.  Looks like something wasn't approved for my unit.  Didn't check the other units.

More wood

More concrete.  The units behind me look wonderful, can't wait to get to that stage of building.  I figure it took about 1 wk for those units, so my unit should look like that around Nov 8...assuming the weather cooperates!

.... I haven't been framed yet, but finally, a call from my PM.  I wasn't able to take his call but per his voicemail, all the wood is there for my building, concrete will be poured tomorrow, and framing will start next Wednesday.  Yay!

How much WOOD could a woodchuck chuck...

Stopped by the site after work and the wood for my building was there!!!  I'm assuming next week is when framing will start.

Not sure what day it is, but more progress pics

I stopped by the community today after work.  Saw wood and I got excited, until I realized it was for the building behind mine.  Oh well, hopefully next week I'll stop by and my wood will be there.

Day 4...

Stopped by this morning after church service and found this....stood there for a minute and thought...gee it looks so small, but I know once the building gets further along it won't seem small at all.

Stopped by my lot Thursday after work and here's what I saw:

Stopping by tomorrow after church and errands to see if there's anything new since Thursday. :)

Preconstruction meeting went pretty well yesterday.  It took all of 30 min to review everything and then my PM (yay! I get to use that term now :)) walked to me my lot and showed me that digging has started.  I can't remember whose blog I read that said record the meeting because there's no way to remember everything that was said.  Tried that with my cellphone voice stopped after 5 min (darn Samsung Galaxy S).  PM stated settlment could be late December or sometime in January.  That part really is not the best apt lease ends Nov 29, I've already given notice and told them that I'm going month to month but I hate the fact that there's an upcharge by the apt complex because I have to do that.  I will email RH to see if they would be willing to assist with that fee, I was very clear back in May that I wanted to move in November.  Issues beyond my control (with the community/developer and HOA and probably some other stuff that I don't know about) have caused the date to be pushed back.  But, I won't complain.

And so it begins...

My pre-construction meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday, Oct 9 and groundbreaking is supposed to be the next day, Wednesday, Oct 10.

Yay!! I must admit that I am so nervous. During the planning and up to this point I haven't been that nervous, but now there's no turning back...*biting my nails*
