Papers are signed!!

We're excited but it doesn't feel real! Our house should be completed by late September or early October. That's 4 or 5 months! Crazy!

So we decided we're already going to alter some of our choices.

1) No hardwood floors - We priced it out and we can get better quality hardwood if we do it with someone else after. A friend of ours got hardwood in their Ryan Home (level A) and it was already scratched and chipped.

2)Appliance upgrade - We looked up the model #s of the included appliances and they were pretty bad, especially the dish washer. The upgrade prices are way over priced but it's still cheaper than if we had to buy them ourselves

3)Carpet upgrade - At first we were only going to get basic carpet with upgraded padding. Our friend had upgraded padding but also upgraded the carpet in their Great Room and it definitely made a different and felt great on my feet! We think its worth it for that room and maybe the basement.

4)Double Vanity in secondary bath - Not positive about this one but it would be nice. Not sure if it's worth $995 though.

Anyways, its very exciting and we have a lot to do in the next month! So many decisions.

    1. That's awesome! This process feels so fast and so slow at the same time. I'm sure our homes will be done before we know it!
