Home :)

Thank You everyone for all of your support through this building process, as hard as it is to believe, we have officially closed and "moved" in. We LOVE our new place, and are slowly but surely getting it all put together. We have had absolutely no issues throughout the entire building process and we are thrilled with Ryan Homes and the product they have produced. We look forward to all the years ahead in this beautiful home. Closing only lasted about 40 minutes max, and we got our keys almost immediately after. I promise to post pictures once we get things where they need to go!! Good luck to the rest of you :)

Quick Question about Closing

Hey everyone, so closing is coming up on the 21st, what should I expect?? How long will it last, who all will be there, how tired will my hand get singing my name (lol)? I am so excited, but getting nervous too!! Happy Building, thanks for supporting me through this entire process :)

Odds and Ends

pretty farm next door

We went by the house today, all the little odds and ends are in place... now we just need the rest of our flooring and the granite counter tops to be installed. I guess doing flooring last is smart, that way they don't have to worry about it getting damaged with the tradesmen walking through the house. Anyways, closing is just around the corner and we couldnt be happier!! Here are some pics!

Cabinets, Mantle, and fresh coat of paint!

Here are some pictures we took last Friday. This week the granite should be going in, as well as all the rest of the flooring. WE are VERY happy so far with how things have turned out!

Drum roll please....

After much time, thought, and energy, we bought our washer and dryer set today!! First of all, we shopped around a lot, went to Sears, and HHgreg, as well as price shopped online. HHgreg had the better prices, and they offer free delivery/haul away (with a mail in rebate ). They also are able to play with their prices a little bit as far as adding/reducing pedestals, warranties, etc. Overall, it was a great shopping experience with them and I would highly recommend them. When we walked in the door my only MUST HAVE was a washer/dryer set that had reduced vibration/noise. Our laundry room is on the top floor, and I didn't want the whole house shaking with every load I did. We also didn't want to spend a fortune. I had been set on Maytag Bravo top loaders as they usually run a little less, but lo and behold we ended up with a front loader, 3.7 cu. Samsung model #WF220ANW. After researching it online, while in the store lol, it had some really great reviews, and they were on sale for $599 each! It also has a great sanitize feature, which is important since I work in the ER and get every bodily fluid imaginable on my scrubs. I still liked the maytags, but they were not on sale, and I didnt like how they felt opening and closing them... dumb I know but they slammed hard and were loud in comparison to the Samsung we ended up with.
On a further note, we stopped by the house today and the stone front is up :) Also, drywall is finished, with paint on the way in the next couple of days,cabinets are sitting in the garage, flooring is set to go in this week and next, ceiling has been "stamped" or w/e it is to make it have the decoration, and driveway is to go in soon enough. Anyways, here are some pictures of the progress!
