Home Stretch...

I have definitely been MIA for a while. I have been visiting to check on everyone's progress. I'm excited for everyone that has closed or is about to close. There has been a lot of progress since the last time I've wrote. I had the pre-drywall meeting about a week ago. The drywall has been completed, and according to my PM the painting and trim will be next week. I went over today to see inside and hopefully take some photos, but it appears that I have already been locked out. No biggie, maybe this weekend I'll stop by the Sales office and ask to "borrow" the keys to my house.  There was a little hiccup during the PM meeting. I paid extra for a soaking tub. I thought the soaking also came with a shower head (see below photo), however it does not. I was a little confuzzled that they would offer an upgraded soaking tub but without a shower head. I don't know many adults that take showers on a daily basis. A bath every now and then to relax is what it would be used for. After finding out that the soaking tub is sans a shower head. I requested to either add a shower head to the tub or remove the soaking tub and install a standard bath. However, my wonderful SR and PM worked with the builder and they agreed to add a shower head without any additional costs to myself.

On the top was what I was hoping it would look like. It's a traditional bath and shower head. On the bottom is the tub that was installed including the change to include the shower head. It appears that I would turn the water for the shower via the nozzle on the wall and to run water for a bath the nozzle and tub faucetare on the side of the tub. Definitely not traditional but I can work with it. All in all I believe I will be satisfied with the results.

Instead of a traditional curtain I plan to install a frame-less glass enclosures. The glass enclosures range from about 300-500 and I would pay a professional to install. It's not something I would want to do myself and risk having water all over the place.

Almost there..I'm not sure why the one shutter is missing. As long as it miraculously appears before closing I have no desire to find out. I went by today and the driveway and sidewalk have been poured. I thought that would be one of the last things they would do.
