We blogged about the building process of our house to document it for ourselves and to help others. Our house is finished and we have moved in and we love our home. Building a house isn't a process that goes perfectly, no matter what builder you pick, and this is our story. Every problem we had during the building process has been made right by Ryan homes. This isn't complaint blog, its how we felt at the time of our post during the building process.

We had our Pre-construction meeting

We finally had our pre-construction meeting this week. It lasted about an hour and half, my husband loves to chat, lol. It was great getting to meet our project manager. He seems really big on following up on the details.  Not all my questions were able to be answered at this stage, since we are still have some time before we break ground. I will post the answers I got next week sometime. We got a new estimated start date of 2/9, which could change depending on how long the county takes on approving our permits. Which would give us a closing date in early May. I prefer to close at the end of a month to be able to skip the first month having a mortgage payment, but we will see. I did find out where the electrical and cables boxes go the lot can't be answered because the power company can put them wherever and don't tell you beforehand. O well it's not like if we knew we could change the location anyways. I did forgot about one thing at our meeting that we didn't go over, our red flag for the tile floor in the master shower. I had a list with me but my husband was holding it, a lot of good that did, my list in his hands, lol. I think that's the only thing we missed going over but I will be sure to bring it up later.

I'm still happy with the delay at this stage, but I'm sure that will change once I move back in with my parents during the build. 4 months of living in a house totaling 6 adults, 1 kid, 4 dogs, 1 cat, and a talking parrot, sounds like fun. :) but very thankful.

Our Pre-construction Meeting is coming up

Our meeting is coming up this week. We sent over all our questions 2 weeks ago, so it wouldn't take so long to ask them all the day of. The paving has started last week. Actually being able to see the difference has got us really excited. This weekend we went back to the design center to get another look at our flooring. This was my husbands first time seeing the floor choices I picked. We ended up changing one thing. Thank you to Ryan Homes for letting us change sometime this late. We only changed the laminate in the kitchen and morning room. We still haven't sold our condo, but we have decided it would be best to move out of our condo before we sell it. People seem to like the place empty better, as all the units around us are selling for higher then we are listed are empty and we have updates they don't have. I think the main thing is we have a dog and cat, and it's hard to keep it spotless (hairless) when pets are living there. Lucky my parents have agreed to let us live with them instead of getting an apartment, we just have to clean us a room out to be able to stay in. That's the hard part.

It's looking like we will be moving in May maybe. I would love the weekend of May 24.
