Wine Tasting Event to Benefit Charities in Cherokee County

We have always thought that Ball Ground would be a nice place to live.  Now that we actually reside here, as we build our home, we see and understand first hand what a truly special place this is.  This event is an opportunity to give back and help out the community in a fun way!  
Hope to see you there!

Our yard is starting to shape up!

Wow, what an improvement a lot of hard work and expertise with a backhoe and bobcat can make.  Our grading guys really improved our side yard along Terrel Street today.

Thursday is going to a fun day!

I found out today the our grading sub contractor, Holcomb Grading & Hauling, is going to give our lot the final grade. 

The concrete crew from Seminole Concrete is going to 
finish our porch top. 

And we are getting our doors and windows delivered!

Just a quick update.

The plumbing, HVAC and electrical have all been roughed in now.  The next step is having the house-wrap installed and that should be Monday.

Check out this bathroom vent that ACR Heating and Air installed, they go way above the norm in all of their work.  This vent has hard pipe for most of the length with just a short piece of flex to reduce noise.  All joints were taped and then coated with mastic!  Truly amazing work!

The electricians showed up today!

Was a busy day today!  B & R Electric came by and started roughing in the electrical for the house today.  It was busy here today, HVAC, pest control and electrical all here today.

Borate treatment today.

Arrow Exterminators showed up today and applied the borate treatment to the house.

The HVAC rough in has started!

Wow!  I am so happy with the way our new HVAC install is going!  When you hire someone that knows what they are doing and take pride in their work it really shows.  

Here is a photo of the inside unit, I am very impressed with the work so far.

Bathroom tub has been set.

The great guys from Heritage Plumbing came out yesterday and set the cast iron tub in place.  That was a simple job for them, it was one I would not wanted to have done.  That tub weighs 315 pounds and is a beauty.

Had the subfloor screwed today.

A nice guy the builder hired came out today and screwed 
the subfloor to the floor joists.  We have Advan Tech for 
our subfloor that is now glued, nailed and screwed to the open web floor joists on the first floor and I-Joists on the second floor.  

We will be installing nailed down hardwood floor later 
that will be running perpendicular to the floor joists.

I believe that we will have a squeak free floor!
