Finished product! They will keep watering it as much as they can through the weekend to slow the curing in this heat and the framers will be here to start at 6am Monday.

Day one of framing in the books. These boys can fly! Way more then I expected in one day. They will get the garage and a couple interior walls done in the morning then on to the roof.

I like the far left. The middle two seem a bit too yellow for my taste. The two on far right are too bright white for the Texas sun. My 2 cents.

Took us a week and a half of working straight, but we got the electrical rough in done finally! Over 7500' of romex all in all! A lot more work then I was expecting but we added a bunch of extra stuff. If I could think of it we have it. It will be worth it in the end, this house will be a showcase of exterior and interior illumination! Also, AC rough in is finished and plumbing too out is started. Should be done next week then the Rock and roof start.

Looking great... Looks like you overkilled the electrical. I did the same but ran 14/2 for the lighting. 7500' of wire is a lot. I think I had about 1200' in a 2100sqft house and each room has its own lighting and outlet circuits.

Rock is done, paint is up, cabinets are in, trim is done. They are working in painting/sanding the cabinets and the marble will go in next week. My vault door got here yesterday so we will be installing that next week as well. It's about 800# so that could get interesting! Moving right along, hoping to be in before the end of the year
