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.

Week 2 done, Plumbing Ground Works Inspected, Cutout Basement Door, and Backfill the Foundation

This week the plumbing ground works were inspected, we're think they must have pasted as it was covered with gravel before the end of week. They also cutout our basement door in the right location, it makes me happy to see this has been taken care of so fast, so it doesn't hold us up. Then they backfill the Foundation (some), they didn't do it in the front yet, but I'm sure they will do that later in the process. The building process seems a little slow at this stage, since there isn't much to see at this stage. Next week we will have our basement slab poured. 

Gravel filled in

We found this one page of the plans laying around, super excited to see the HVAC plans, wish we found the plans for other floors too.

Correct door location cut out
You can still see both basement openings, as the big one will be closed in with framing as we selected.
Grading filled in on the garage side.

  1. What a gorgeous view behind your home. As for the speed of the building process, I feel like framing is the only thing that goes quickly.

  2. It's looking good! The first few weeks are really slow but when they start framing it feels like the process speeds up.
