Most of my time was spent in the kitchen. I didn't want to leave it because...we have cabinet crown molding. I didn't think we would have it. I wrote a note to ask our PM for contact info for the cabinets so we could add it later. Now there is no need. Also just before we left we ran the dishwasher to get a sense of the noise factor. It's defiantly quieter than ones we've had in the past, so we're keeping it for now.
WE'RE GOING TO BE HOMEOWNERS TOMORROW!!!!!!
I'm so glad we went through NVR settlement. The fact that we don't have to wait for a wire to come through in order to get our keys is fantastic.
So let's finish this countdown
For us we required a new home. We kinda got spoiled. Our first place together was an rehabbed apartment with new everything. Plus we couldn't find our requirements in existing homes in the areas we were looking. Plus something has to be said for piece of mind in not needing to replace our HVAC, appliances, and a roof. Plus the experience of building from the ground up is awesome. Going from a flat piece of land to our dream home is so amazing to us. Which leads me to #1
WE BUILT OUR FIRST HOME!
I know there are a few of us in the Ryan blog family that are building our first home, but it is not the norm throughout the country. To top it off, we didn't build a starter home, we built a forever home. That's such an amazing and at the same time a humbling experience.
I didn't take a lot of pics on my phone yesterday, but here it is. The finished product...
