Goodies at the Milan Mansion

Lots of goodies were installed over this past week!  From granite--to deck--to fixtures and fans---it has been a week of exciting additions. While there is still more to complete, we can see the finish line in sight. In fact, we received an official letter from NVR that our pre-settlement date is scheduled for May 27th and our closing date is June 2nd.
 
We are of course excited about all of the updates. We anticipate that the floors and other finishes will be up next.  When we went in today, it looked like they were putting the finishing touches on the electrical and wiring. The only thing that I did not see were the outlets in the island. I'm going to assume that they'll put those in soon---I'm trying not to bug my PM about it at this point--). He said that there two  installed in the island--so i'll take him at his word for now.  Okay, so here are the progress pictures:
 
Here are a few pictures of the kitchen with granite and fixtures installed:
 
 
 
 
 

Here are a few pictures of the master bath and tub tile surround and vanity:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here are a few pics of the deck.  We're going to have to do an outside addition to either extend the deck or add a patio. We opted for the 10x12 deck.  It's much smaller in person.  
 
 
 
 
A couple of miscellaneous pictures:
 
guest bathtub
 
 
 
ceiling fans were installed.
 
 
 
stairs in the garage. after adding the stairs on, the 2-car garage seems rather tight. both of our cars better fit....
 
 
Until next time....

  1. GO BUG HIM NOW! Don't wait on things that you notice- he is human he will miss some things but it is important that you get these things complete before close. After close anything can happen- but now time is money and any delay in close can cost them money- including the outlets you were promised.

  2. Did you want your vanity lights installed that way? They are upside down, lol. I have the same lights (actually the same cabinets and counter top as well ;)

  3. Nice to see it coming together. I actually think the vanity light is fine, they can be hung either direction.

  4. Wow that's quite a step up in your garage. Everything is coming together nicely. Is your listello metallic? It's like "bling" for your bathroom. I love it.

  5. Everything looks great!! If outlets are already in other parts of your home then I would bug your PM about the island. Our island outlets were installed at the same time as our other outlets, which was before the granite went in.
