Can You Hear Me Now?!!

Something that we hadn't totally bargained for when we purchased a new construction home--construction. All around us, new homes are going in. We are woken each morning not by the idyllic sound of birds, but the clang of hammers and the screech of trucks backing up. Right now they are building the twin home right next to ours. I can literally hear the construction workers' radio right now. (Hey, at least it saves on electricity for us. I can just listen to theirs and not bother powering up ours.) I am thinking that it will be nice when the walls are up and the workers are inside. A great advantage is that we get to see how our home was built as this is the exact same builder and model.

Oooh, I hear ya on that one - although I've gotta say, the birds are getting a little annoying now that the hammering is gone. J/K...sort of. Were you one of the first homes built in your development, or is it nearing the end?

Too funny. The sound of nature is annoying. We are kind of in the second wave. Some homes have been here for a year now.
