Stucco should be finished up today and the roof tomorrow.

An update on the cabinets: the kitchenspro.com guys are great on the initial order but the subsequent order for the extra trim we need isn't getting the same attention. I guess the higher dollar amount warrant greater service. We ended up needed a few trip pieces and a false door front to make the area around the wall oven less plain.
Today was crazy we had three subs working (tile, roofing, stucco) and three subs coming by for bids and the bank inspector within an hour this morning. The bank inspector saw that the stucco wasn't quite complete but will try to "exchange for work" with the cabinets and tile that aren't until the next draw. Hopefully, they will process the draw.
The island that I spent most of the day Saturday building is too big for the granite blanks - I'll have to move it around a little bit.
Home Depot messed up the doors (much like the windows). 25% of the doors are wrong. One I can swap out and make work and 3 others I had to re-order. Luckily they will not charge me extra as they shouldn't because it was there problem. I would suggest if anyone goes with HD make sure that the millwork guys do the orders for windows and doors. The Pro Desk Manager actually did the order for me and we had about 25% of the windows and 25% of the doors that had to be reordered.
Because of that we won't be painting this weekend and we'll be pushed back a week. I was going to have the doors and trim installed but since I have a week to wait for the remainder of the doors I'll go ahead and install the doors, casing and base this weekend and install the last three doors as soon as I get them.
We went to Building Materials Outlet to get our casing and trim. They had pine boards for less that MDF at Home Depot. The selection isn't as big but the prices were great.
