Whoa! Lots happening this past week! The big news on the outside is that the limestone cladding is starting to go up, and it looks awesome! The first course went up yesterday and the second course up this morning (looks like a course-a-day deal).
We haven't talked grout yet, but we're liking how the seams look here. Gray grout?
The other big news is that the drywall has started to go in!

Looking toward the built-in shelves. Had to make a decision on Thursday on how to trim the shelves out. Decided to not trim them out. Appears to be the right decision...

They still need to tape and float and cut a few more holes (and do the garage), but a whole lot got done yesterday (yes, they did all this in one day).
Looks the builder was right about not putting in the fancy door just yet...
So this next week they'll be finishing the drywall, finishing the limestone cladding, and putting the eyebrows on (the shade extensions that go over three collections of windows on the second floor). They might also start putting in cabinets as well.
Eight weeks until the punch walk. That's a heartbeat away!
Stay off the driveway, please.
