This is standing in the dining room, looking toward the front door.
Thursday, we were surprised (and thrilled!) to discover that they were applying stucco to the outside of the house. You'll remember that block walls are under that stucco. They give it two coats: a scratch coat and a finish coat. Next the house will be painted. This is the front of the home, looking down the block.
For the first time, here is a shot of the back of the house. I took it with the zoom lens from across the pond. Although not all are seen in these pictures, we counted seven men working. That's a good sized crew. We drove back a little after 7 PM, and they were still at it!
This is NOT the color of the house, as it's not yet painted.
Later in the week, we got this shot of the walls being sanded.
Yesterday, we discovered that the walls and ceilings were completed. According to the builder's prediction, it should be five more weeks until we close.
Have you noticed the new book giveaway in my sidebar?
