It's been a while since I posted here on the house. Things are moving along, and should pick up pace soon. Electrical rough-in complete, AC/Heat system in, plumbing is 98% (gas tie-in to the water heaters and two drains need their vent pipes run), and video/sound/network wiring done. Security system guy needs to do his thing, then the house can be inspected so that insulation, drywall, and masonry can begin. Masonry scheduled to start on Wednesday, May 30.

I don't know how I missed this thread. I love threads like these.
Congrats OP!!! Looks to be a beautiful house. I will be following.
When do you think it will be complete?

Well, I'm overdue for an update. All drywall is in and paint ready now, even though pics do not show it. Brick and stone work is completed and stucco around the two dormers upstairs should start soon.Interior doors going in and garage doors have been installed as well. Carpenter is now onsite making the cabinets and shelves. We have chosen the appliances, trim, paint, and flooring. Now it is just matter of waiting for most of it.
Pic 1 - main garage
Pic 2 - detached garage
Pic 3 - living room
Pic 4 - stonework for fireplace
Pic 5 - master ceiling
Pics 6 & 7 - master closet that will hopefully hold my wife's clothes and shoes.
The rest are obviously exterior.

Nice lookin' place! Get some covers for those cars - that Oklahoma dust will get in a closed garage (at least it did when I lived there).

Yes, 4 car. Semi detached is 30'x31', the attached is 28'x24'. I'm hoping the storm shelter can double as a oil change pit.

Very nice, looks like it is coming along. I like the stone accents with the brick, nicely done.

Thanks! We're excited. My wife is looking forward to that big closet. I'm looking forward to summer at the pool and plenty of room to work in the garages. The cats just want their screened porch back so they can bird watch.
