Building Aubrey Station - Post 10

Over a month ago we had just drywalled and were starting on the siding of Lot 1 at Aubrey Station. Now just a month later, we have:

Painted and primed the walls so we can install the cabinetry,  Stained the cabinets and added travertine tile flooring and baseboards,  Installed the sinks,  Finished tiling the showers,  Installed shingles on the roof,  And painted the exterior of the home.
