Building Barry: Day 152

Drywall is done, ceilings are textured:

Gutters are installed (although we are still missing an electrical outlet on the porch, and the ridge vent shingles are the wrong color on part of the roof):

Handrails and trim and doors, oh my!

And our kitchen cabinets are here, in boxes in the garage. I was good for two days, then I peeked:

I believe we're on deck for primer, cabinets, and carpentry in the next week or two. Things are definitely starting to shape up!

Building Barry: Day 141

So, round about Day 135 this happened:
Look, Plum shutters! Stone! Siding!

This morning, our living room looked like this:

And this evening, with the work crew still there after 7pm, and via Jason's awful cell phone camera, it looked like this:
I'll head over in the morning to get better pics, but Jason tells me that most of the ceilings and at least half of the walls are up. We're waiting anxiously for it to be done, because once the drywall is up, the builder gives us a "guaranteed" close date, which means we can notify the apartment complex of when we'll be moving out. Hallelujah!
