First I'd like to throw a big Thank you out to Moombahighrider. < Simon > called me and we spoke a couple times on how to do all the pre wire and types of cables to use and he gave me a wealth of ideas. Thanks so much Simon your top notch man.
I will post some pics of the wiring we did after tomorrow, camera was dead and it got dark so the cell camera wasn't going to cut it. These pictures are from today when i went out to the house.
Yesterday we spent 8 hours pre-wireing the house. We installed in wall wiring for the surround sound in the living room, speakers in all the bedrooms, dinning room, kitchen, back yard, and garage. Cat5E in all the rooms, a media cabinet in the garage, separate volume controls for all the rooms, and cable in all the rooms. We also pre wired for 4 Channel satalight, and 4 camera security system that access the internet and can be checked via computer or Cell phone.
We spent about 400 bucks on cables and boxes. We still have at least another 300 in wall plates and volume controls, then the security camaers, and the sky is the limit when it comes to purchasing 5 additional pairs of speakers for all the room. 4 pairs of speakers for the garage and 1 pair for the outside. All that will come in time. Im not spending my summer gas money for the house ill wait till winter LOL.
Ok on to the updated pictures.
The back sections on the front of the garage are where we are having stone installed.

Well it wont be as big and the 1/4 yard i have now thats for sure. There is still a lot of yard, its hard to see it in the pics but ill get some pics. That will be another thread as i get to the landscaping and ideas for that. I also have to build the rest of the fence, not looking forward to that but at 2K for the fence people to do it. Ill spend 1K on lumber and a case of beer for my buddies lol.
This lot is .17.
Thats not the final color of the home. The siding is pre-primered and its all yellow. The white is a different type of siding as i understand.
The house colors if i recall now is a dark sand color with Black trim to pull the back roof out and we have a light sand color as the accent. It will actually match the boat more then anything. LOL.

What's with the siding on the side? Did they forget to frame in the side garage door or something? Usually that stuff goes on from the bottom up.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

noticed the fascia trim at the peak of the garage door, and on the side of the house, but not on the second peak over the garage and over the bay window? builder forget?
noticed they haven't poured the driveway yet. if you can, get it done dead last. some sub will park on it and drip oil. never fails.
don't have them seal the concrete on the back patio if you have the option. then go get yourself some coffee concrete stain and some sealant. looks pimp. I would do stamped/colored entryway and 2 2ft bands down the driveway if you can. colored concrete mixed is expensive. if you get it plain and unsealed, you can stain it yourself for less than $200.
check ebay for inwall volumes and speakers. usually $29 for impedance matching controls and under $50 for a decent set of inwalls(i used phoenix gold in the last house. not the same as the automotive company in quality, but they work nice). if you buy the speakers now, you can bring them for the painters to colormatch, otherwise get some of the wall color loaded into a spray can.
make sure your landscaper knows the fence layout so they can plan around it. personally, i'm a curbing guy around the entire house 2-3.5ft out. keeping grass away from the actual foundation really helps with potential water in the crawlspace down the road, and much easier to mow. make sure when they pour the driveway/entry, you remember(measure and write it down) or mark where the sleeve is under the driveway and under the front walkway if you have a planter bed. you won't be sorry later. a small scratch in the side of the driveway does it when the concrete is fresh.
spray texture or hand scraped?
