Shingle bells, shingle bells, shingle all the wayyy!

Ho, ho, ho!
I hope you are all getting into the holiday spirit!
One thing I love about the neighborhood we are building in is how festive the residents get with holidays!  I can't wait until next year to have our tree in the window and the lights outlining our structure.


Just a quick update for everyone, being that I have gotten some questions about my delayed postings! 

I know I myself got spoiled driving out to the house every day during the build up.  If I didn't I would have missed something!  Since then I have been spacing out my visits.

Currently we are getting all electrical lines installed so not much to take photos of.  However, we did do a custom addition of a floor outlet, so I found myself driving out there today to discuss the placement with the electrician.  He should be out tomorrow to finish up all of the wiring. (yay!)

I was also pleased to see the roof getting finalized with the shingles!  How exciting!

I do plan to drive out to the house on Friday, so check back and hopefully I will have some awesome photos to check out!  Shouldn't be long until the house is under lock and key!

I was just talking to my husband about a floor outlet the other day. Where did you get one put in? They're working on our electric this week too, I might see if we can still add one.

We had one installed in our family room.

The way the room is set we will have to "float" our furniture. Actually, an associate at a furniture store was the person who recommended it to us! LOL, thank goodness she did!

Be prepared tho, they may tell you no. It was a custom addition to our blue print that had to be done before they were drawn up. Also, I think it was an extra $250; just to give you an idea of the cost.

I hope it works out for you!!!!

Thanks for the info. I asked, but it's too late for us. To answer your question about the fridge cost, it was $1,299 minus the 10% Lowes coupon so $1,169! We really thought we would end up spending $2k on a fridge, so this was a great deal. After tax and service plan the total was around $1,450.
