Tomorrow's the Big Day!!!

We had our final walk-through today with our project manager.  Everything went REALLY well.  To be completely honest, we went feeling pretty nervous about what things he would be willing to do from the building inspector's report.  But we left very happy and grateful that he addressed every single one and was going to fix them today.  So relieved.  He walked us through the house and showed us all the things in our house and how they worked.  Seriously, I feel like when this house was designed, everything was thought of.  Even things I wouldn't have considered.  So like I said, we had about 12 things that could be fixed today that he was going to take care of.  We're still waiting for our landscaping to be completed and when it does actually happen, he said we could definitely talk the people working on it about how we would prefer the land to be graded.  We were very happy to hear that. 

The one concern that we have was with the carpet.  We upgraded our first floor carpet and carpet pad.  We upgraded to the 8 pound pad.  I was thinking it would feel awesome and as soon as I stood on it, it felt like I was standing on cement.  We mentioned to him and he said that he didn't know but he could call Rite Rug and have them come check it out.  What I found even stranger was as soon as we stood on the steps to go upstairs (non-upgraded carpet and pad) it felt super cushy.  My husband took off one of the vents to see if you could see the pad, which we could, and it definitely looked like the 5 lb. standard pad.  So, they will call us and set up an appointment to check it out and if it's the wrong pad, they will re-do it.  Kind of a hassle, but at the same time, maybe we got the upstairs upgraded with padding out of it.  We'll see how this all works out.  Here's the final pictures!
 Final finished basement!
So, behind that door on the left is the "water closet" with the main valves for the water.  It is open insulation.  This is considered "unfinished basement" and is why they don't put up dry wall there.  Boo.

 Family Room!  With padding that wasn't so great.  :(

We are all very excited for tomorrow.  We close at 11 and are moving in in the evening.  So excited to see the end!
