What's up with the house construction?

Central Vac rough in

Total of 320 amp service coming in, 2-200 amp breaker boxes
This is a real time update versus the 'catching up chronology ' of the last couple of blogs about the house construction.
As of today the house construction on Richland Chambers is moving right along.  We are in the 'mechanical ' stage on the interior.  The electrician has been working for several days, pulling wire, placing boxes for plugs, switches, fixtures and other stuff.  
We are having a central vacuum system installed by North Texas Central Vacuums.  They came and roughed in the system yesterday by running central vac pipe and control wires.  We will have a total of 7 vac inlets including one in the garage on the unit with a kit to clean out the cars.

The plumber is still working on rough in and has set the tubs and is running the gas lines today.  They should be finished in the next day or two.  They are installing a manifold system in the house which will enable us to turn off the water supply to individual fixtures in the house from a central location.

The HVAC system is roughed in

I neglected to put conduit in the slab for floor plugs, so we are doing it the hard way

Plumbing rough in using pex pipe
The last thing to go in the walls is the rest of the 'Bug be Gone' system.  A3 Pest Solutions from Blooming Grove is installing the system.  They will come and finish running the tubing for the system to all of the outside eaves and soffits before we seal up the walls.  Everything is looking good so far and we hope to be spraying the foam insulation by the middle of next week.
