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.

Progress on our street

We got good news this week. They have started laying gravel on our street. Our SR is doing a great job of keeping us updated about the status of our street. We won’t be breaking ground until our street is paved, but now that the gravel is down it shouldn’t be too much longer until the curb and paving is done. We also confirmed our washer and dryer that we ordered will fit through the laundry room doorway.  We may need to change the address and date for the delivery, as we made an educated guess since we don’t have a set closing date yet. The only thing left to do while we wait to break ground is view a detailed list of what’s included, as the MSS doesn’t go into detail as much as we want. Not sure what this type of paperwork is called but it’s based on the version # of our plan. What community you’re in and when you sign will affect your version of your plan.  We have Plan: Ernest Hemingway Version: ERN00-1.


  1. What a wonderful sight. I'm amazed at your patience. Go crew Go!!

  2. YAY! I am so excited you shared this picture with me. I am so excited for them to break ground on the lots. I am going to ask my SR to ensure I get updates along the way too. I am going to ask about the details of what is included too. Where did you find that code? Will you do this with TD or Marty? Is this what document should be reviewed at the Pre-Construction meeting?

    1. The code on was on our MSS and purchased agreement. We told SR about this, but not sure if he will be able to help. The PM may be the one for these questions. You basically go over all the options you selected at your Preconstruction meeting then anything you have questions on.
