First Draw Inspection

Today we had our first draw inspection with our HUD inspector.  His role is to inspect the house and ensure progress is being made for the bank to validate we are actually making improvements.  We worked with our contractors to make a couple small changes to the scope of our project so we needed to submit these to him with the updated bid as well.  

As the project has gone on we've decided we'd like to change a couple things and we also missed a couple things in our initial bid as well:
     * Adding a fan to the girls bathroom
     * Moving the attic access from the master closet to the front hall closet
     * Adding a couple base cabinets in the kitchen
     * Knocking down the little closet we were going to use as a pantry.  We decided once we took down the wall that it looks out of place.  
     * Removed hardwood floor refinishing from the bid because they are in really good shape already.
     * Fixing the additional crack we found in the basement. 

We also received our allowances for the tile, granite and other finishes we will be choosing for the house.  We tried to go pick tiles for the basement room tonight with the girls but it was a bit of a disaster so we will have to get a sitter and take the time to go back and look without them this weekend.  Once we get the tiles chosen they will install them and the carpet downstairs in the family room and it will be done!   

The electrical panel was updated today as well.  The contractors have also removed more of the wall in the bathroom so of course I snapped a couple more pictures to share.
