day 3

Progress continues on Lot 23!  We ran out tonight after work and were pleased to see rock down and footings poured.  Unfortunately, it was too dark to take any photos.  Daylight Savings Time is killing me this year!  I hate how early it's getting dark and E just hasn't been able to adjust yet.  He has no problem staying up until his normal bedtime, but mornings have been rough.  Monday morning he was up at 1 am, 2 am and then again at 5:45 am.  Luckily, he's slept through the night the past two nights, but he's still getting out of bed around 5:30 am.  E - if you're reading this - mommy thinks 6:30 is much more acceptable.  Mmmkay?
[trick-or-treating in the new neighborhood!]
While the construction crew is doing the heavy lifting, we've been trying to make all of our interior and exterior selections.  We met with the Builder about a month ago to pick out the exterior details and met with him again last Friday to make the interior selections.

After debating back and forth between vinyl siding and cement board, we ultimately decided to stick with a 5" vinyl.  It saved us a quite a bit, plus all of the other homes in the neighborhood have vinyl.  We knew we wanted a shade of grey and ultimately decided on Harbor Grey.  There is shake detail in the gables and it's a weathered look, in a different shade of grey.  The soffit, fascia and trim will all be linen/soft white and our stone has various shades of grey with a bit of brown.  We finally chose a charcoal grey roof and our front door/garage doors will be stained a medium brown color.  And despite the use of grey (or is it gray?) five times already in this short paragraph, we're not going for Fifty Shades!  I'm excited to see it all come together but I'm nervous that everything won't look 'quite right' once it's on such a large scale.  Trying not to think about that, though!

The weather is supposed to stay dry for the next couple of days, so I'm anxious to see just how much they can get done in the first week.  More pictures tomorrow - hopefully!
