I went back out to home site today. I wasn't planning on it, but...let's just say I needed a pick-a-me-up.
I was surprised to see that they practically finished the downstairs!! They seem to working 1/2 days right now on the weekend. Which is fine by me!! They weren't even scheduled to start until tomorrow!! And now they are about 1/2 done! I am impressed. I tried to get pictures, but my camera's batteries died. =/
ANYWAY...I took a look at the milan next me. Just walked over the property line and peaked. They have the moisture barrier down. And it appears that 1. they have the fireplace the same place I do, and 2. It also looks as if they may get the same patio as us. We'll see.
So here is my thing to you Milan owners...
With the back of my house all framed and what have you, I realized I liked the length of the patio, but wished it went out away from the house into the yard more. =( So I guess I wish it was wider. Something to think about...seriously!!
I guess I will definitely need to save up for my friends hubby to come out and do some work. I would like some nice stone work to come off the patio I guess and have either a fire pit or a corner fireplace. We'll see. So that's always an option too. =)
Anyway...seriously consider making it wider! The length of the house is great, but it should be a little wider. Minimum of 3 ft wider I would think. Just my thoughts though!
If my Milan neighbors read this, this is for you:
Great house! Great ideas! Can't wait to see what your's looks out (outside). I did not go onto your property and will NOT without your permission. No worries!! It did look like they should be probably pouring the foundation in the next day or two and then start framing. You aren't far behind us at all!! If you read this, consider blogging...Would love to say hello!
