The permits have been approved and work is underway! So far part of the house has been resided in Hardyplank and foundation prep is starting (they’ve marked out the space for the foundation and excavated for the footers). I’ll try to snap a photo this week so we can document progress – after almost three months of no visible changes, it’s pretty exciting to see the shape of things to come.
There have been small snags – the wrong style of internal doors turned up, the tub we wanted in the original bath is an inch too long – but nothing major yet (knock on wood). Let’s hope it stays that way. We’re waiting to process our first change order: upgrading the laundry room floor and drywall to fit in with the rest of the addition as it will be off the new master bath. We think this is a change that we’ll appreciate as well as future buyers.
I’ve got to say that for a long time I’ve kind of forgotten about/not been excited about the house. Dealing with morning sickness and other aspects of pregnancy put the house on the back burner, but now that I’m at the halfway mark and final feeling better, I’ve got enough energy to think about the details again.
