So many months have past since the installation the night before the first freeze.
Just updating this for those that may search for info on this in the future on the site.
The sod did not take any longer than sod installed in the spring/summer time frame. The irrigation that was most likely much less than what would of been used during the heat of summer as the home owner and I worked closely on checking the base daily and only watering if appeared not to be moist. The sod did not have any issues coming out in spring not also experienced in homes in the area with the same exposures.
I have included a couple of photos of the property taken yesterday during a visit, as you can see the turf is in good shape.
