Nothing changed ... wait a second!

WTF ... nothing changed since last time!

Wait a second; there is siding on the side!

And on the back!

And come to think of it that somewhat-more-than-250-square-ft deck wasn't there last time either! We were really excited to see the deck was on; it is one of our favorite features of the entire plan and we think it has turned out marvelously!

You can see out too; this is from on our sides deck:

The master bedroom deck sits above and slightly behind the downstairs deck:

It even looks like we have a little bit of yard left behind the deck. Pavan wants to have a greenhouse in that space somewhere:

Last but certainly not least, the gas hookup for the barbecue; we shouldn't need to worry about propane tanks whatsoever :)
Starting to feel like its almost done!

Dry walls!

Insulation (see post) is more or less done. Drywall is in the early stages of installation:

The addition of drywall definitely makes it feel more like being in a house. Curiously it actually makes some rooms 'feel' much larger. The half-wall looks more half-wallish too.

Looking out from the dining room, over the half-wall:

The fireplace in the greatroom, over which the tv mount will likely go, is now apparent:

In the greatroom the final ceiling shape is now apparent:

Heading upstairs, we can see the vault in the master bedroom, and once again admire the weird L-shape of the neighbor:

Oh and evidently we have running water:

Apparently drywall and mudding and sanding and other related tasks will take a couple of weeks. The optimistic estimate for move-in is end of November.
