We had our pre-drywall meeting on Friday. We met with our PM (who--by the way--is pretty cool) and walked through the house. He explained to us all the work that had been completed. There were a couple of items that we noticed during the walk-through that needed to be fixed before drywall. Our PM agreed to add the exhaust fan in the master bedroom and agreed to changes with the staircase railing. There was also a wall that was not framed in the basement. The framing/wall exists on our floor plan, but because we have other plans for this particular room we asked our PM to not worry about it.
Our PM confirmed again that we will not have railing on our front porch. I am disappointed that this is not a possibility because it looks like just about everyone in the neighborhood has railings, including other Milan models. One was just recently built in the neighborhood that has the railings (and this model has no basement) and one was recently built that has railings and the egress window (which was on our initial floor plan but we were later told that we wouldn't get) in the basement that I was told that Milan's don't have....hmph!! It doesn't add up to me, but I will move on! We would really like to have the railings because it would add aesthetically to the exterior look of the home and fit in with the neighborhood---and safety. Anyway, here's a few pics from the walk-through:
Pics of the morning room and kitchen - insulation installed.
Layered for soundproofing.
Garage and unfinished portion of the basement.
Exit out of the basement. I love how wide it is....
Morgan first time in her new room. She was able to explore. She loved her new view.
They will start the drywall and exterior siding this week. There are still areas that need insulation, so I'm sure they'll finish that tomorrow. Our PM said that the drywall process is normally a couple of weeks. Afterwards, flooring and cabinetry. Our closing date is around the end of May. Feels like things are moving fast....
