Hey fellas, Lots of progress. The exterior stucco is done and the interior paint is about 75 percent. Cabinets and doors will go in within the next couple weeks. Underground utilities are going in now. They hit caliche which means a jack hammer attachment at $$$ per hour. Not surprised. Iíll get some photos up once itís not such an fín mess over there.

I've been slacking on photos as it's been a mess between stucco, utilities, texture, and boxes everywhere. A majority of these photos are old, but you can see the interior main paint color and the exterior trim color. The inside is painted and the doors go in tomorrow. The outside is primed and the trim is about 30% done. Cabinets go in starting the 10th and then flooring. The electrician starts any day on the can light inserts and other fixtures. I'll have some up to date photos soon.

We are really thrilled with the whole deal! I can be pretty particular and my contractor has stepped up and made me happy time after time with the details. I've really gotten all the custom details I've wanted. One work of advice to anybody considering a custom house, do lot's of prep and get everything possible into the plans and bids UP FRONT. Luckily I did and it's kept me from a bunch of expensive change orders.

Here are a few of the stucco almost complete and the trench for sewer and the caliche. My house sits back 100 ft from the street to the garage which is a long way in Vegas. I wanted the deep set back due to the lot size and for curb appeal.

Yes, sir. It's pretty common in Mission Hills to pull the water/sewer from the street when you build. Some are stubbed, but they are the exception, not the rule. The landowner had to pony up before the streets went in and many didn't want to make the investment on raw land at that time.
