Morningside Renovation

Our Journey Through The Renovation Process Of Our Future "Forever Home" In Morningside (Atlanta,GA)

Step Forward (baby steps count don’t they?)

Yeah, our GC said the plans were approved today by the city and are to be picked up tomorrow. Only a 10 day delay, we can handle that.

We’ve had a lot of rain lately and unfortunately some is accumulating on the hardwood floors in one of the bedrooms.  Seems that it’s coming in from the area covering what they demo’d.  Definitely concerning to see but when I told the GC he said that he would have someone fix the tarp and not to worry because it won’t hurt the floors, also that it’s common in these types of remodeling jobs. 

He also said that they’ll check the depth of the grading tomorrow (thank you), I’m curious to hear back about this because I truly don’t think that it’s deep enough for an 8′ finished ceiling which is noted throughout the plans and has been discussed numerous times.  He still can’t tell me when they’ll pour the foundation or lay the plumbing, my hope is soon.

Remember, originally we were suppose to be in the house in May, then July – now that isn’t looking too promising.  Are there really no schedules or timelines in residential construction?  This is starting to become pretty frustrating.
