Windows & Drywall

4.03.2014

Our windows were installed right after the framing was complete.  We chose beige exterior windows to compliment our beige exterior trim (garage door, molding, gutters).  The beige windows were actually required with the beige trim package, and the interior windows had to be beige (also called almond) as well.  At first, we were skeptical about beige interior windows because typically interior window trim is white, but after researching the look of the almond windows online I am really excited about them, and they won't look awful if we decide to install white trim.

Now for our REAL windows!

Hopefully, we'll get lots of natural light in our morning room.

The drywall went up quickly and was at the "mud and tape" phase during this round of photos.

There were some areas of the framing that needed to be re-secured, such as the wall at the top of the stairs shown above, but it was no big deal to point it out to Ryan Homes to correct.

Much more progress to come!  You can definitely see things coming together here.

  1. Wow! I LOVE the beige windows, both inside and outside. Wish they had been an option when we were building 2 years ago. We always paint inside the window frame white, and the beige would have really stood out against the white paint. Also, it probably won't show dirt as much on the outside. Beautiful windows! It won't be long now. It happens fast from this point.

    1. Thank you so much! Yes, Ryan Homes only recently started offering beige windows in our community and we are actually the FIRST and ONLY house we've seen so far take advantage of the offering. I can't find a link to your blog in your google profile. Do you have one I can follow?

    2. Don't have a blog. We had almost finished building by the time I discovered blogland (way too late to take advantage of all the good advice you find on these things). We've been in our house 2 years now, but I still enjoy sharing everyone else's excitement!

  2. I'm surprise I haven't seen your blog until just recently, we're also building a naples but in Baltimore, MD and we settle in about 3 weeks. Congrats!, it's exciting.
