We also found that the garage door had been installed
There were some "goodies" in the garage including our banisters, our interior doors and the granite for our master vanity.
On a side note, does anyone know what that pipe extending into the garage is?- the one to the right of the stack of doors in the photo.

I was also happy to see that the extra lip of cement slab that was in the garage has been removed and it looks fine, yay!
The first floor of the house looks great, it really is starting to feel like a home!

We did notice a small hole in the drywall on the staircase and alerted our PM, who promised to get it fixed.
When we entered the family room we found two surprises- our fireplace mantel with granite surround had been installed

We did notice that the mantel was not completely flush against the wall and our PM said he would address it, as well as the slight bowing in the ceiling above the fireplace.
I don't think our PM really knew what he was getting in for when he took us on, I'm a real perfectionist, and I'm not going to rest until everything is up to my standards. This weekend I'm going to go visit the house alone and take a level with me and make sure that every wall in the house is straight. My poor PM is really going to have to work to get his "10's" from me!
We also found our kitchen cabinetry just hanging out in our family room and kitchen, all ready for install. I'm guess that will take place this week.
Upstairs everything looked good!

While we were down visiting the house we ran into our across the street neighbors again, who are so nice. I'm really looking forward to getting to know them better. They invited us over to trick our treat in the neighborhood and I think we'll take them up on the invite! Mark and I can switch off sitting in a lawn chair in our driveway handing out candy, and it would be a much safter neighborhood for trick or treating since there are sidewalks and street lights. Plus it would be a fun way to meet more of our neighbors! Maybe we'll even have electricity at the house by then and I'll be able to string a few outdoor lights!
