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.

Our Lot

We picked Lot 80.  It cost us $20,000 more than a rear load lot, but we wanted/needed a backyard.

  1. Eeeekkkk so exciting, we are Lot 79! In my opinion you have the absolute best lot!

  2. Thanks. SR told us 80 was the best lot when we were trying to decide. If we would have gone back to sign only 3 hours later, we wouldn't have gotten it. Our neighbors on the other side of us wanted 80 too, so they settled for the next biggest non-corner lot, 81. Have yall decided on your outside colors yet? We went with canyon (dark brown), not sure if I'm 100% on this color now that I see the really nice grey up on the others houses, lol. I'm sure it's too late for us to change, and I'm sure the canyon will look as good as the grey. :)
