More progress on the trim work. It is really starting to look good.
The painter came by and stained a few pieces of scrap. The Ebony just did not look as good as what we already have. There just needed to be a stain that was a shade darker than what it is right now. We are going to just go with what we have and see how it goes.
The roofers came by and ...almost finished their job. They did the chimney and eyebrows on the front gables but forgot the returns around the garage.
The siding crew was able to keep working on their part and made some progress.
The excavation crew was out and hauled off the extra dirt and graded our lot. The Production Supervisor said they are going to try to pour our driveway and sidewalk next week
There was a mix up in scheduling with the electricians so they didn't make it out today but are going to try to get out within the next few days. When the trim crew went to install our paneling in the dining room, they noticed the outlets were 1.5" too high and need the electricians to move those down too. So they will have to move 8 outlets in total. Not only that the cold air return in the dining room is in the way of the paneling. Not sure what solution they are going to work for this. In another pictures I have seen, they have put this up higher on the wall (which is an eye soar)...????

...not sure what yet, but something.

|This Double Chair Rail is Gorgeous and the Workmanship is World Class!!!|
|That Air Vent is in the way and you can see the electrical outlet on the wall...|
These are supposed to fall below the wood panels on these walls.
If I would have known that before, I would have brought it up during the
