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.

Status update on selling our current place and start date of our build

I just wanted to check in. I’m waiting to hear if ours plans were submitted for permits yet, as our break ground date is less than 1 ½ weeks away. We had a lot of random snow/ freezing rain so I’m not sure if that has affected our start date. Our SR told us he would let us know if this happened, so I’m guessing no delay, but you never know. We plan to go check out our lot this weekend, and take a picture with our lot sign if it’s up. Not sure if it's up yet. Last weekend when we drove by there were lot signs for the road of houses in front of ours and the townhouses were framed with roofs. It looks like things are moving along.

We are still trying to sell our current place, but have moved out to help it sell. I hope it works, because living there while it was on the market just wasn’t working for us. I was told we must sell our currently place 30 days before we close on our new house. With our current timeline that means we need to have it sold by April 13 (so we at least need an offer by March 13) which is right around the counter. This has got my husband and I really worried, as we didn’t think it would take this long to sell our place. I have learned there are a lot of stupid people in this world while trying to sell our place.  There are people who rather pay more to get less. There are people who go to showings and don’t open doors to rooms then ask if we had things that they didn’t open the door to. Who goes to a showing and doesn’t go in all the rooms? I can’t help stupid.

Here are some pictures I took awhile back of the view from our lot that I never posted.
