23 days and counting down..some changes to the house.


                                                     23 Days to go...

 If there are no delays (knock wood) then we should be moving into our Florence in 23 days. I have included some pictures because last night I was able to see our kitchen and counter tops installed as well as the bathroom vanities. It finally feels like it will be a home.  I guess seeing it in this state makes me worry that 23 days isn't enough time but I have nothing but faith in Mike (PM) and Ryan homes. I have been locked out so my awesome SR Michelle taken me twice to see the house. Last night when she took me and I saw the kitchen it was very exciting and nice to have her with me. She was there when I picked out the kitchen cupboards and counter tops so it was a bonus. I really like our Sales rep and will be honestly sad when this process is over.

Scottsdale Espresso cabinets mixed with the upgraded counter tops in the Antique Moscarello and we are all set. I was worried the floor would clash but it looks nice and eventually we will upgrade to wood floors. For now its perfect. We have doors but no door handles and lots of stuff will be happening this week. I pray and pray for nice weather because we will get a drive way poured. If not, we will be with a gravel driveway for the winter..YUCK

My husband isn't able to go as much as I am but when I showed him pictures of the kitchen he was really happy and can't wait to see it in person. 

Jessica and Katie at NVR have us almost all the way thru underwriting and I will add them to my list of people I will miss chatting with when this process should end. They have both been amazing and kind and working with them has been nothing but comfortable. They take time to explain things and have done nothing but look out for our best interest in this process. 


Front porch and the wood is covered by a pillar..So pretty! The front door should be painted black soon. I can't wait for that since I was a bit concerned the front of the house didn't have enough contrast..I have now grown fond of our siding and brick combination.






Standing in the Living room..I love my kitchen..




Kitchen from the corner of the morning room..

Opposite corner of the morning room..


Master bath ..double vanities



When I tried to get our new trash account set up the girl couldn't find our street. I thought hooking utitlies into our name would be easy but I am guessing that each call will be a long one. 

Less than 30 days to go..Any advice or lists to work from?  Send 'em over if you got 'em. I want to make sure I don't forget anything..

  5. Looks awesome, definitely keep up with the utils. The gas companyhere in VA actually had no idea what was going on because their sales systems and acct mgmt systems are independent, so even though they came to setup service, the account side had no idea and the bill went unpaid for 3 months until the person was visited by the disconnect guy. Ridiculous!
