if you have it, spend some additional cash on carpet. speaking from experience, builder-grade carpet is crap and most will give you such a small allowance, that's all you will see. 7lb pad is the best. there's an 8lb, but any reputable shop won't recommend it. 5-6 are fha-grade and will break down easy.
don't know what you are having laid in kitchen/bathrooms(tile or lino), but if it's lino and you plan on laying tile later down the road, there's 2 ways to lay lino- cabinets first, then 3/4mdf then lino or 3/4mdf, cabinets on top then lino. ensure your builder does cabinets first, then mdf up to the cabinets. makes ripping the floor out a whole lot easier, and if you do plan on upgrading, don't glue the mdf down. makes a HUGE mess when removing..
the plumbing looked like pex. great product, been here for years. it's way easy to work with from a plumbing standpoint but not real diy friendly as the tools to install the fittings are somewhat expensive. I did have a trim guy shoot a line once tho with a finish nail. took 3 months for the leak to start. homeowners called one morning with a garage full of water. that's the only downside. copper would not have punctured..
it's looking good..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

Living room/ great room side There putting up the outside garage wall with a jacking system and 2x4 pretty impressive to watch them do that. Then the garage door header goes up using the same system.

Looking down the garage side of the house, this is also where the RV pad will be, the man door is at the 21-24ft mark and then the garage has another 3 1/2 feet after is. The RV pad only goes tot he door right now as they wanted another 600 for 3 more ft and i can just do that myself for about 100 bucks and a 12pack lol.
Inside the house now, man is looks small now =/ but they say drywall makes it look bigger again LOL.
