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.

The master shower med set tile we got charged twice for this change ($395 Ryan and $662 flooring people) there is no way that tile cost $66 per square feet plus labor, it’s 10 square feet) 


 Kitchen and Master Bath Cabinets
 Kitchen and Master Bath counter top
 Outside Color Scheme
 What the outside color actually looks like (We picked Canyon) I wanted a lighter brown but the lighter colors were for accent colors.
 The top laminate is the one we picked for the Half Bath, Laundry Room, and 2nd floor Hall Full Bath (We thought it would be easy to replace the flooring in these places later on our own for way cheaper). We picked a different laminate for the Kitchen not pictured here (my husband changed this at a later date, after all my pictures were taken).
The one the left is the tile for our master bath its level 4 (D) We wanted this to be super nice since it was going in shower and around the big tub because it was worth the cost and too hard to change later

 We didn't want a shower pan so we picked the floor for our shower note it will be 2in instead of 1in pictured but the same color. This way a price change Ryan Homes charged us on top of the flooring people charging us but it was a must for us, since it would be hard to redo this later.
Wood floor in the foyer with the carpet for both the Steps, 2nd floor and basement. 

Left is the same carpet as above in different lighting and the Right is the carpet for the living room, dining room and family room (note: I wanted the one on the right for the whole house but it was way too pricey)

 The Kitchen and Master Bath cabinets and countertops again together
 The master bath tile again in different lighting with the shelf this time

 Everything we picked out together (the laminate we added/change later).
 Cabinets for the 2nd floor half bath  and flooring (we will replace this later)

the dining room, living room, and family room carpet with the wood in the foyer

 Both carpets we picked with wood


The rest of the pictures are just extra pictures of everything above

  1. Nice choices here. We are also getting Santa Cecilia Light granite and almost went with the Espresso cabinets too but with Maple Glaze instead but I've seen the Espresso and St.Cecilia granite together and it looks AMAZING!

  3. I have no idea why it posted my comment twice. Sorry. All I can think of is I did change my profile from the "Blogger" to the "Google +" (at the same time it posted the second comment). I'm not sure I like it.....

  4. Lol, it's okay. I'm new to all this blogging stuff, so I'm still learning myself. I look forward to seeing your Santa Cecilia light with the maple glaze, I almost went with that myself. It's so hard picking without seeing it full size in person.

  6. Those quite the amazing pieces. Here in the Philippines one of the many known supplier of tiles is Floor Center. Floor designs are truly taking a hype at this time.
