This will be the first post of many in our adventures of building our new home! We are very excited to be starting this process and can't wait to share all of the details to come!
Here is an update so far on how things have been going.
We have decided to build a Ryan Home. We couldn't be more happy with the neighborhood and house that we have picked out. As for the neighborhood, we knew we wanted something that had a real sense of community and something that A. and our other future children could grow up in and have neighborhood kids to play with. With that being said, we also wanted to make sure that we still had a nice size lot and a good school system. After looking through a lot of neighborhoods we fell in love with this one and are really excited for our kids to grow up here!
As of right now we are waiting on our pre construction meeting to break ground! This should all get started by the end of October with a tentative move in/done building date to be around the beginning of February. We have already gone and picked everything out ( which was harder than I thought it would be). We even had to go back and repick our flooring, countertops and kitchen backsplash! Anyhow....here are a few pictures of our selections so far:
This is a model of our house. Our elevation is similar but does have a few differences. Some of those are:
- Our house is opposite of this with the garage on the right
- Instead of two windows on the front porch there is one circular window in the center
- We only have two eaves in the roof line not three as pictured above
- Our garage has another floor above it ( unlike what is pictured) and therefore has a double window like the other side ( this is where the bonus room is located)
We wanted to have this hunter green siding but it was not available. So instead we went with a dark tan siding and ledge stones with black shutters and white trim. We had a hard time choosing this as well because it was difficult to get a feel for the true color based on the small sample we were given to look at. We were able to drive around and look at the different color combinations but we had to be careful what we chose because we could not have the same color for siding/stone as any of our neighbors in a certain amount of distance. ( which I can appreciate)
Here is a picture of our SOLD sign and the inside of the model with my two loves :)
Anyhow, we are excited to share with everyone our process and hopefully it continues to be a smooth one!
Thanks for reading!
