And today the forms were removed!

Unfortunately, we noticed that one of our foundation windows is not in the location we requested. To top things off, the foundation windows were already a point of contention because we were expecting to have three foundation windows. According to our SR during the sales/contract process, one foundation window was included with the home. We were required per code to have an egress window (which we had to pay for) and we added two additional foundation windows. Well, at our pre-start meeting we were informed that there are no foundation windows included in the base cost and it was too late to add another. We are disappointed because we plan to finish our basement and wanted to have as much natural light as possible on that level. So anyways, to make a long story short, we're only getting two windows and one of them is misplaced. We sent an email to our PM and hope to hear that he can take care of it.

Besides the foundation window snafu, DH and I had a great day. We grabbed breakfast at one of our favorite diners (Pamela's) and then went to the Home and Garden Show at the Convention Center. We snagged a ton of business cards for interior painting, garage door installation, and low maintenance decks. We can't wait to make our house a home! On the way home, we stopped for groceries and as I was stuffing our goodies into the tiny cupboard we use to store dry goods, I could not stop dreaming of this:

Maybe I will start enjoying the weekly trip to the supermarket once I have more space for groceries!
The tentative schedule for next week is as follows:
Monday - waterproofing and inspection
Tuesday - lumber delivery
Wednesday - framing begins
Hopefully I will have some good news to share about the windows once we hear back from PM on Monday!
